a. Create New Names Last but not least, is Create new Names. This is a shortcut to the Name Gallery and a quick way to select an
object, or group of objects, and assign a name to them. One would expect that you could then select an unformatted object, select the object in the Name Gallery, press Apply,
and have all the attributes of the named object applied to the selection. But, noooooooooo! It does not work like that. Maybe in the next version?
This last feature is not officially part of the general Infobar and is really a context- sensitive function of the Shape Editor Tool that I overlooked when I covered the Shape
Editor Tool, earlier. It is easy to overlook because it looks just like the View Quality and Feathering slider.
The E-shape on the left is a line with an Existing Stroke Shape applied. In this
state, it has five control points. Convert the Line to Shape (Arrange menu) and zowie, look at all those points! Control points can make your file size gain weight
in a hurry. Each control point is described by it's location on the page, plus a description of how it connects to the next control point. Selecting the shape, then
selecting all the points (or some of the points if you prefer), with the Shape Editor Tool, then adjusting the Smoothing slider (on the bottom right side of the
Infobar), in this case all the way to 100%) reduces the points remarkably without compromising the integrity of the shape.
