Strokes

Once you’ve created a path, you’ll probably want to give the path some specific line weight, color, or other property. The process of applying formatting to a path is often called “stroking a path,” and we refer to a path’s appearance as its “stroke.” Strokes specify what the outside of the path looks like.

To define a stroke for a path, select the path, then display the Stroke palette by pressing F10 (see Figure 5-37). Use the Type popup menu to choose the type of stroke you want to use—solid, dashed, or any of the “scotch” (i.e., multi-stroke) types.
