  1. Never changed my Constrain Angle and never thought i would. But now that i know about it I’m shure I will change it at least once this year. Thanks for all the tips, I’m really bonding with Illustrator and I like what I’m discovering.

  2. I always spinned every square manuelly. Oh, and trust me. i used MANY of them.
    So basicly, you posted it to make me feel stupid.
    Just kidding, thanks ALOT! Time saver. :D
