The first thing that you will add to this Flyer will be a Rectangle. Go to the Tool Bar and select the Rectangle Tool.
Notice that this will change the Tool Properties Bar, which is located above the Flyer/Canvas.
You'll see that the Width and Height boxes are grayed out. Draw a Rectangle at the bottom of the page. Once this is done, the Width and Height boxes will change to allow you to edit the Rectangle Dimensions.
On the Tool Properties Bar, the last box allows you to change the measurement type. Here it is set to px for Pixels.
When you select the down arrow a drop down menu will appear that has different measurement types to choose from.
pt for Points
px for Pixels mm for Millimeters
cm for Centimeters
m for Meters
in for Inches
Choose in for Inches.
Then go over to the Width Box and enter "8.05" in, and set the Height Box to "0.46" in.
Note that this gives you a Rectangle without Rounded Corners.
Ok, now using what we've just learned we will create a Multicolored Rounded Rectangle Bar.
Draw 4 Rectangles and place them side by side. We will use the following Dimensions for each Rectangle:
1st Rectangle's Dimensions: W 2.16, H 0.48, Ry 0.11
2nd Rectangle's Dimensions: W 1.65, H 0.48, Ry 0.11
3rd Rectangle's Dimensions: W 2.16, H 0.48, Ry 0.11
4th Rectangle's Dimensions: W 1.35, H 0.48, Ry 0.11
With the Rectangle Tool still selected, click on the First Rectangle.
Set the Dimensions (remember to use the Tool Property Bar).
Repeat steps for the other Rectangles. They will all have the last Fill Color applied which was our Custom Orange.
Before applying the new Colors to the Rectangles, let us Align and Adjust them.
