Stroke

The Stroke section of the Inspector allows you to modify the stroke properties of the currently selected object.

It also allows you to animate the path of a stroke using the Trim Path feature.

Stroke Types

You can apply different stroke types to shapes. These include:

  • Solid

  • Linear Gradient

  • Radial Gradient

Butt

The end of the stroke is a straight line and does not extend beyond the end vertices. On a zero length path, the stroke will not be rendered at all.

Round

The ends of a stroke are rounded. On a zero length path, the stroke is a full circle.
