Layers updated:2006-08-04 22:50:35
The Layers Palette allows you to select a layer to draw in, show and hide layers, lock layers, and delete layers; much like a drawing program. The main difference from a traditional drawing program is that you can have layers inside of layers, layers have a dimension which differs from the page size, and layers inside the active layer can be grabbed and the...

Working with Groups updated:2006-08-04 22:49:47
PageStream can combine objects into groups to freeze their relative positions and to simplify manipulating them. A group of objects can be selected, moved, scaled and edited as one object. The appearance of the individual objects is unchanged when they are grouped; groups exist only to make editing easier. Groups can be many levels deep. For example, you...

Comparing Drawings with Groups updated:2006-08-04 22:00:53
Do not confuse drawings with groups. While the concepts may seem similar, they produce different results, especially when you edit the combined objects. Basically, grouping objects combines them together so that you can edit them as a single object, but the components retain their individual properties: e.g., the shapes' line weights remain the same as you...

Selecting Objects updated:2006-08-04 20:54:04
The Object tool allows you to select objects to move, scale or change. An object is selected when size handles (small squares) are shown around its bounding box. You can also select objects with the Reshape, Crop and Rotate tools, but some Object menu commands are disabled when these tools are selected. To select an object: Select the Object tool and click...

Using Objects updated:2006-08-04 20:47:55

PageStream provides five tools to manipulate objects:  Object tool Use the Object tool to edit, move and scale objects. When this tool is selected, you can manipulate with Object menu commands.  Reshape tool Use the Reshape tool to add, delete and...

Drawing Paths updated:2006-08-04 20:40:13
A path is a series of any number of line and curve segments. It is called a path because an imaginary pen follows a path to draw the lines and curves. A path with two points would have one segment connecting them, a path with three points would have two segments, and so on. PageStream uses Bezier curves to generate smooth curves. Each curve has two Bezier...

Drawing Shapes updated:2006-08-04 20:25:39
To draw a basic shape: Choose a shape tool. Some tools are combined in flyout tool groups. To select one of these, click on the tool icon and drag out. Some shapes are drawn from a corner to a diagonally opposite corner, while others are drawn from the center to the outside edge. Customizing the drawing tools: Some of the drawing tools can be customized to...

Creating Graphics updated:2006-08-04 20:19:22
You can create drawings with PageStream's drawing tools, but you cannot create bitmapped pictures or EPS illustrations within PageStream. However, it is possible to export or print to a bitmap or print to an EPS file and import it later. PageStream has two types of drawing tools: shape and path tools. The shape tools are used to draw geometric shapes such...
