    can you put a white outline around a stroke?

  • Jeff Witchel says:

    Hi mervin,

    Absolutely!

    Select an object. In the Appearance panel, click on the Stroke listing and add a Stroke.

    With the Stroke listing still selected, click the Duplicate button (Page icon) at the bottom of the panel. Make bottom listing another color and increase the Weight.

    Hope this helps!

    Jeff

    Why won’t my Appearance panel show up? It’s not listed under “Window”, not on my desktop as icon or anything… I’m using CS4.

    Thanks.
