Hi guys. In today's video, we'll be looking at the part two for the Edit tab under the Preferences. But let's just we'll have an intro first. Uh, mhm. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice We've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and also we upload videos daily, so just keep it there for the new content. Otherwise, we're back in the programme here. Now, I'm just a reminder this is a follow up of the preferences you want to say many serious. And this is part three, which is part two of the editor confusing. I know, but I will leave links in description to the relevant videos. So, um yeah. So in this, uh, previous video, we covered the first three constraint, angle nudge and arrow key increment. So today we'll be covering the rest. So let's first look at the keep objects on Matt when dragged. So when this is selected, go on. Then. If we select the object, we try dragging out the math, ultimately snap to the edge. Same at the bottom, left and right and top. The only way to get it out of the mat will be using under our position and size panel. It's a little arrows, and then you can use the values here, and you're just that you can actually get outside of the mat. But keep in mind as soon as you move it, it will snap it back to the sentence. And obviously, if you disable that setting, then you'll be able to move it outside of the match. You're not gonna be demonstrating that now. I'm sure you get the idea of what it does and keep proportions as default. Remember, I could be wrong. Um, if this is if you de select this, you have to restart by, not cut in order for it to take effect. But with this on, what will happen is if you've got a shape selected and they also under the position and size, then the little default proportions here. Sorry. Keep proportions here will be on by default. So if you d selected, um, in the preferences, then they will be selected. Yes, I see. What this does is if you read it the shape of the year, it will keep the proportions constraint. And then yeah, and then the next stop here on the preference tab. Then we've got our preferences. We've got the do not keep up. Do not keep proportions on free am transfer. So what this will do at the moment when it's selected on it kind of works the back wrong way around to me, at least. So what happens now is you drag this, you'll see there's no proportions. It doesn't keep the constraints. You keep shifting the constraint, the the proportions. But it's just a bit the way they worded it. I think perhaps it's a bit confusing under their preferences. So now if you click this off, then, uh, by default you will keep constrained without you even holding the constraint. But it's a bit inconvenient working like that. In my opinion, I'd rather just prefer to keep that on. Okay, quite frankly, most of these default settings you can just keep on because, um, we have set up quite nice. You said that back before I forget. And then next up here, we've got default shadows size. The moment is 0.50. So if we go to effects on top and we navigate to shadow layer, then we'll see here, but size. It's 0.50. So this is basically the default shadow size that you can sit there has they've got a preference head it. Then we've got the next up here. Automatically simplify shapes, and then there's simplify. Threshold. Amount will be simplified by. Well, this comes down to is, let's say, take two shapes and you say Remove a shape in another shape or you merge them or something like that. Then obviously you're note count or your nodes amount, or be a certain amount. But if you merge them, it will take the amounts together and simplify it a bit. So that where your notice, um, you've got less note. So by default, the default settings is quite good. You don't notice a change in the actual quality, so I would also just leave that one on. And then, lastly year we've got never full and open path. So what that does is let's say you're creating a path with the pen tool or something, and then you press enter then, um, it won't ought to fill it, which that's kind of what you expect. But with that option on the course, Rather is should I say? With that option off, it will automatically full of shit. And then it makes it nearly impossible to just draw single parts. Uh, once again, like I said, my default settings, you will just keep on uh but now, at least you know what they do in case you need to use them in a different workflow. And if you've maybe set things, you're not sure there should be or not acting correctly and we just go restore to default or restore defaults, and I'll set everything back to the factory stand. Otherwise, Yeah, that is it on the preferences. So otherwise, if we had to final couple steals a day programme is freely available here to say to a downloads page and then otherwise, if you guys get softwaretraining.co.za you can find, um, this programme and more like I mentioned a variety of programmes we recover, and also we have this nice little search options. So if you wanna isolate, just search. So you're looking for anything specific and then if you don't find what you're looking for, just go requested training video and then we will make that for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
