Fractals are mathematical transformations that simulate the irregularities and patterns in natural shapes, such as coastlines and mountain ranges. When you fractalize a vector object, its outline becomes jagged. You can use the Fractalize command to add a fractal effect to any vector object except dimension objects and Smart Lines.

- Select at least one object and choose
**Effects**|**Fractalize**. - Enter the
**Wiggle**and**Density**values, and choose**Curves**or**Polygon**fractals. - Click
**Apply**to preview the effect. Click**OK**to apply the effect and close the dialog box.

Canvas X Draw fractalizes objects by adding several anchor points to an objectâ€™s path. High wiggle and density settings and polygon fractals can add numerous anchor points, which require more memory to print. Lower settings and curves fractals can help to conserve system resources and eliminate problems you might have while printing.
