To apply a textured transparency

1 Select the object with the Interactive Transparency tool.

2 Choose Texture from the Transparency Type list box on the Property Bar.

3 Choose a sample containing textures from the Texture Library list box on the Property Bar.

4 Click the First Transparency Picker on the Property Bar and click a texture.

• By pressing ESC when you're dragging the Interactive Transparency tool, you return the object to its state prior to dragging.

• Texture transparencies add significantly to the size of your file and the time it takes to print. You may want to use these transparencies sparingly, especially with large objects with texture transparencies.

• Three transparency handles let you control the block of fractal texture that controls the transparency of the object. One handle moves the entire fractal and the other two scale, skew and rotate it. For more information see, "Customizing pattern and texture fills" on page 235.

• You can edit the transparency by clicking the Edit Transparency button on the Property Bar. This opens the Texture Transparency dialog box which is similar to the Texture Fill dialog box. For more information, see "Customizing pattern and texture fills" on page 235.

• You can remove the transparency by clicking the Clear Transparency button on the Property Bar.
