Tips on the Stroke Panel:
- In the Stroke Panel, try different Weights, Caps and Corner settings
- Apply a different Profile to your stroke. You can find several profile options on the bottom of the Stroke Panel
- Combine Dashed Lines with Rounded Cap and Corners settings for your stroke
- Setting the first Dash at 0 and the Gap and a higher number when using the Dashed Line settings for the stroke will create circles instead of dashes.
- And last but not least, when increasing or decreasing the values for the stroke or dashed lines, place the cursor in the field and then increase or decrease the value by using the arrow keys “UP” or “Down” on your keyboard.
