Flash CS5 Deco Tool: Grid Fill Options
Previously we covered the basics of the Vine Fill option on the Deco Tool (found in the main toolbar). Now let's take a look at the Grid Fill option, the next in the Properties dropdown that appears when you select the Deco Tool.

The Grid Fill option lets you create a grid of evenly-spaced shapes filling an area of your choosing. These can be the default black squares in a repeating pattern, or symbols of your choosing and color in various pattern sets. The simplest way to use the tool is to leave the settings at default, click an area, and watch it fill with shapes aligned on a grid.
