Changing the feathering profile

After applying feathering you can change the transition across the feather. You might want a regular rate of change or a more pronounced change towards one end or the center.

On an 800x600 display the feathering profile button may be off the edge of the display. You may need to move the feathering control bar - see Moving control bars.

1. Create the feather - see Feathering objects.

2. On the Feathering Control Bar click Profile. This opens the Profile dialog box.

3. You either select a predefined profile from the drop-down list or drag the sliders to create a custom profile. The top option in the drop-down list (the straight line) creates a regular rate of change.

 When creating a custom profile:

 Move the top slider towards:

 -1 for more change at the outer edge of the feather.

 +1 for more change at the inner edge of the feather.

 Move the bottom slider towards:

 -1 for more change in the center than at the edges.

 +1 for more change at the edges.
