2. USING GLOBAL COLORS

Setting a swatch to "global" is useful if you plan to change the colouring in the artwork on the future because any object with a global colour applied to it will automatically change if you go back to swatch and edit it.

3. REPEAT TRANSFORMATION

The Transform Again shortcut Ctrl+D [Win], Cmd+D [Mac] is useful for rapidly repeating the last transformation action performed.
