Chapter 2. Creating Simple Graphics > Setting Stroke Attributes

Setting Stroke Attributes

A line has three attributes: color, thickness (also known as weight or, in Flash, stroke height), and style. You can set all three in the Property Inspector for any tool that creates or modifies strokes (the line, pen, oval, rectangle, and ink-bottle tools). In addition, you can set stroke color from the Toolbox or from the Color Mixer panel.

To access the Property Inspector:

  • If the Property Inspector is not open, from the Window menu, choose Properties (Figure 2.4).

    Figure 2.4. Choose Window > Properties (top) to display the Property Inspector (bottom).


    The Property Inspector appears on the desktop. Note that the Property Inspector displays the attributes for lines only when you have selected a line-related tool in the Toolbox or you have selected lines on the Stage. (You learn to use line-related tools in the following exercises; you learn to use the Property Inspector with selections in Chapter 3.)
