Editing Strokes with the Ink Bottle
There are a number of ways to change the stroke of an object. You can select the stroke and change its characteristics in the Property Inspector, the Swatch palettes, and the Color Mixer. If you need to apply the stroke properties of one object to that of another, use the Ink Bottle tool. The Ink Bottle tool holds the properties you’ve set for strokes in any of the palettes. You can click any object on the Stage to change the properties of its stroke (color, line weight and style) or add a stroke to an object that doesn’t have one.
Use the Ink Bottle
- Select a stroke on the Stage, and then change Stroke attributes in the Property Inspector.
Click the Ink Bottle tool on the Tools panel.
The pointer becomes a small ink bottle.
Click on the stroke of the shape to update it with the new attributes.
The stroke updates to the new color.
