One of the best new features of Illustrator CS6 is the Pattern Tool. In this tutorial, we'll look at the basics of this new tool and get started using it. If you have ever tried to create a perfectly tiling pattern in Illustrator, you have known the frustration of trying to line up the pattern with grid lines, snap to grid, and snap to point. It will try your patience! Thanks to the new Pattern Tool, those days are behind designers forever!
