Strokes

InDesign, QuarkXPress, and PageMaker offer similar ways of applying a stroke. However, InDesign not only lets you apply a width and color, you can even apply a gradient to any path—even text. And when you apply a stroke to text, it stays editable.

Note that, unlike the other two applications, the weight of a stroke in InDesign can be centered either on the path’s center, or on the inside, or the outside of the path (see Figure 9-2). The choice is made on Stroke palette with the Align Stroke buttons. (However, this doesn’t apply to stroked text, unless you convert the text to outlines first.)
