Chapter 5. Drawing > Feathering

Feathering

The usual definition of feathering goes something like this: “feathering softens the edges of page items.” This isn’t really quite true. Feathering softens the interior—the fill or contents—of a page item around the edges of the page item. If you’re hoping to simulate a pencil stroke on an InDesign path...well, you’ll just have to do that in Illustrator. Our disappointment aside, feathering is a useful addition to InDesign’s path formatting features.

To apply the feathering effect to an object, follow these steps (see Figure 5-71).
