I "feel" so stupid. I have dozens of bitmap fills that I've created over the years but I can't figure out how to use them in 2021. How do I use my fill folders? Or make a folder the default for bitmap fills? I select an object, then select bitmap, then I get stuck.
fill your shape with a bitmap pattern already on system. in the fill docer, click fill section, then the dropdown next to the square labelled "bitmap pattern". Click cogwheel top right. Select folder. This drops you to your default bitmap fills folder. Either navigate to the fill you want to import, or put all your "own" fills in that folder - perhaps in a "my fills" folder or some such.
Thanks! I'll try it. Immediately before seeing your message, I tried again. I used the alias function which worked but I think your method is cleaner.
