Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
i swear, Adobe Illustrator is the most annoying piece of software. every single simple thing seems obfuscated by layers of interface. i don't understand why Photoshop is so much more straightforward.
i'm trying to create a shape in Illustrator and fill it in with a simple, solid color. i created the shape using the pen tool, and i grouped all of the anchor points in the shape i created. however, i can't get the damn program to fill in that shape with a simple, red color. i change the stroke and fill colors when i have the thing selected, but NOTHING happens. this is driving me out of my mind. what am i missing here?
