Changing Feature Profiles

Each sketch feature has a width and height, as well as a length.
When you create a feature, you drag it out to specify its length. The default width and height are determined by the feature type you choose. You can adjust the width and height of Folds, Ridges, Horizon Edges, and Object Connectors with the Profile tool.
To Adjust the Width and Height of a Feature:
  1. Click the Sketch Page button to see the Sketch page (if it isn't already displayed).
  2. Make sure the Sketch object you want is selected in the [Select Object] box .
  3. Click the Profile tool and click the feature to edit.
  4. Do any of the following:
    • To change the width of different parts of the feature, drag the profile handles (the small squares that appear on the feature when this tool is selected).
      By default, a new feature has five profile handles, but you can add more by holding down the Shift key and clicking the feature's centerline. To delete a profile handle, select it and press the Del key or click Delete Profile .
    • To make the entire feature wider, drag the profile edge (indicated by a thin dashed line) away from the centerline.
    • To change the ratio of width to height (affecting the overall steepness of the feature), adjust the Height/Width Ratio slider.
    • To taper the ends of the feature, check either or both of the Feature Width Taper checkboxes.
    • To reverse the selected feature, click Flip Feature .
    • To apply the current width for all features that use profiles ( Folds, Ridges, Horizon Edges, and Object Connectors), click Set Default Width . Subsequent features that use profiles will use the new width until you change it again and click this button, or until you exit Image Authoring and restart it.
