Being Photoshop, there’s probably quite a few approaches to this problem, but only one I can think of that maintains full vector edited and scaling. There’s a few things going on here. Square is just a shape layer for the square. Nothing tricky there. The Blurry Circle group has a circle as a vector mask. The vector mask is set to subtract and also has ...


In Illustrator... Select it all, Pathfinder > Merge, click the red, hit delete. Or Select it all, grab the Shape Builder Tool, Hold down the Option/Alt and click-drag starting below the rings, to the center ring covered by red.


I ran into this exact same issue a while ago, also while drawing a bunch of small icons. Turns out you can do some pretty neat stuff with the "Blend if… This Layer" slider in the Layer Style panel: Dragging the right slider all the way to the left basically tells Photoshop, "keep everything I draw black opaque, and make everything white transparent". ...


Object > Transform > [the transformation you want] and uncheck "Transform Object". This will cause "Transform Pattern" to auto-check, thus transforming the pattern but not the object. Simply enter a value and click OK. Additionally, if you hold the ~ (tilde) key down while using a transform tool such as the Scale Tool, Rotate Tool, etc. It will cause ...


You could script this. The center of a triangle is the barycentric coordinate, which is just the vector average. So: #target illustrator // CC BY SA Janne Ojala 2014 function rotate_around_vertex_average(obj, ang) { var points = obj.pathPoints; var x = 0; var y = 0; for(var i=0; i < points.length; i++){ point = points[i]; ...


Insure that your shape layer is selected in the layers panel Choose the Direct Selection tool from the tool bar () or press A Now you'll be able to access all of the properties for your shape in the command bar at the top of the screen—including the shape's fill color.


I didn't hash it out too much, but I'd do it with before and after pseudoclasses. Create a circle before that matches the color of your link's background color, then create a circle after that matches the color of the page background. div { position: relative; } a { width: 150px; height: 100px; line-height: 100px; background-color: #ddd; ...


If by "shapes" you mean vector layers or shape layers, then no. It is not possible to have multiple colors on a single vector or shape layer. Any method to change colors will require at least one additional layer per color needed. That can be a separate layer for each shape, or a separate layer filled with color and masked - but it always takes additional ...


One permanent way is to invoke Pattern Options and rotate the objects inside -> Duplicating and Saving and Re-applying the new pattern to the object. (wrong part of the answer was removed)
