I create a pattern in perspective view , but when I fill my shape by my pattern , I need Move my pattern in my shape . As I see I can do it by entering position of pixels , the question is Can I move the pattern by using handle ?

this is my pattern

this is my pattern

this is my shape when I fill by my pattern

enter image description here

I know I should use this panel to move my pattern in my shape

enter image description here

but I think it is easier to use handle to move it.

    What program is this about? – Wrzlprmft Jan 21 '15 at 13:22

You're pattern isn't constructed properly. You should not be using a transformed area that has an odd shape to set the pattern tile. Your pattern should be a flat, untransformed rectangle.

Then you draw your odd shape and fill it with the pattern and transform the pattern.

All that being posted: If you have Transform Pattern Tiles checked in the Preferences, then yes you can transform patterns the same way you would any other shape.

  • Do u know why I have to do this ? because when I create pattern in rectangle I have to convert it to Mesh then distort it and converting to Mesh causes some problem ,such as we can't change shape by vertex easily , or we can't change color or ... so it isn't better to create pattern in a perspective view :D ? – Nastaran Hakimi Dec 22 '14 at 15:23

    No it is not better to create a pattern in perspective. All patterns should be created flat. You can always edit the pattern after the fact via the pattern editor in Illustrator. – Scott Dec 22 '14 at 22:37
  • assume my pattern is flat we can move it by handle ? – Nastaran Hakimi Dec 23 '14 at 15:32
