Illustrator Pattern Options: It’s rectangles all the way down.

tileOne of the coolest features about Illustrator’s Pattern Options panel is that it allows you to create patterns based on hexagons and not just rectangles. But once you create a pattern, if you drag the pattern back out to the artboard, you’ll see that even the hexagon patterns are still based on a rectangular tile! I guess illustrator is just doing some tiling math in the background.
