Chapter 4. Nip/Tuck: Selecting, Editing,... > Convert Dashed Stroke to Outline

Convert Dashed Stroke to Outline

At first glance, it doesn’t appear that it’s possible to convert a dashed line to an outline. If you use either the Object>Expand or Object>Path>Outline Stroke command, you get a solid line. The solution? Select the path and from the Object menu choose Flatten Transparency. In the dialog, move the Raster/Vector Balance slider to 100, make sure Convert All Strokes to Outlines is checked, and click OK. You’ll end up with an outlined dashed line (where each dash is a separate object).
