You can create a mesh object that meets your needs. Using the Interactive Mesh Fill tool you can apply a mesh object to simple objects, curves, and bitmaps. When you apply a mesh to an object the object is converted to a mesh fill object.
To create a mesh object
1 Open the Interactive Fill flyout, and click the Interactive Mesh Fill tool.
2 On the Property Bar, type the number of columns in the top portion of the Grid Size box, and press ENTER.
3 On the Property Bar, type the number of rows in the bottom portion of the Grid Size box, and press ENTER.
4 Using the shape cursor, adjust the nodes in the grid to create the desired mesh.
• You can apply a mesh fill to closed objects only.
When an object is complex you need to PowerClip the objects into a grid mesh. For more information see "Working with PowerClip" on page 526.
