Adobe shows off Illustrator CS6 pattern creation tool

Adobe released a "sneak peek" video last week for one of the new tools to be featured in the upcoming Illustrator CS6. The pattern creation tool is designed to speed up the process of creating vector-based seamless pattern tiles within Illustrator. One of the features of the tool is a preview of the of the repeated tile which updates on the fly whenever edits are made to the pattern. The tool also automatically wraps objects that break the tile boundaries. Once a pattern is created with the tool it can be added to the swatches palette and is ready for use.
