Modify the Spiral Drawing using onscreen controls
You can use the Spiral Drawing onscreen controls to adjust the position of the drawing in the Canvas, the location of the pen within the gear, the size of the stator ring, and the number of teeth and rotation of the gear.
Adjust the Spiral Drawing using onscreen controls
In the Layers list, Canvas, Timeline, select an applied Spiral Drawing generator.
In the toolbar, click and hold the 2D transform tools pop-up menu, then choose the Adjust Item tool.
In the Canvas, do any of the following:
Drag the center onscreen control (or any blank area within the ring or gears) to reposition the drawing in the Canvas.
Drag the ring inward to decrease its radius or outward to increase its radius.
Drag the gear inward to decrease its teeth value or outward to increase its teeth value. This affects how closely the pattern is drawn to the center of the spiral.
Drag the white circle in the gear to adjust the location of the pen and the rotation of the gear.
