MODULE 1 • Creating a New File

Step Description
1A Before we begin, note that complete Mac and Windows Commands, Keyboard Shortcuts & Mouse directions are written in the script, and mentioned only    in the audio.The video shows only Mac Commands, using a one-button mouse.Here are the Keyboard Shortcut abbreviations and differences:

  • Mac: Command (Cmd) =  Windows: Control (Ctrl)
  • Mac: Option (Opt) = Windows: (Alt)
  • Shortcut directions are written as follows:
    • Cmd/Ctrl + Keyboard Letter
    • Opt/Alt + click


This means press & hold the Command key if you have a Mac, or the Control Key if you have Windows, then press the letter, or perform the action, etc….

1B A note on Mouse actions:

  • Two Button Mouse: Right Click to open the Context Menu/ Right Click Menu
  • One Button Mouse: Press & Hold the Control (Ctrl) Key while you click on the Art Board, to open the Context Menu/ Right Click Menu.

If you have a one button mouse for your Mac, you might want to configure it to act like a two button mouse:

  • Go to System Preferences.
  • Open up the Mouse options
  • On the “Point & Click” page, check the box to the left of “Secondary Click: Click on Right Side”.
  • Your Mouse will now work like a Two Button Mouse
2 In this lesson we will be working from the file ‘Basic T-shirt Front Flat’ that we created in our pervious lessons. if you have not yet done so already please go back and do so.
