  • InDesign line tool problem

    I have some documents in which I can't stroke a simple straight line created with the line tool. I choose a stroke weight and give the stroke a color but nothing shows up.

    If I create a new document I can draw a line and then copy it into the problem document.

    I must have something set wrong in the problem document but I can't figure out what it is.

    Can someone help?

    Are you attempting to apply the color to the "stroke" fill or the "outline"? There is a toggle switch on the tool. It may be set to outline in your "problem" document and set to fill as the default for new documents.

      Waunita,

      Thank you. After more experimenting I discovered that I had "basic feather" turned on. With that off it now works.

        I have seen in older versions that both the fill and stroke need to be set to the same color. I remember a file that just had the stroke set with a stroke weight but the line did not come out properly. Once I set the fill to the same color then the stroke weight and color worked fine.

            I would like to mark it as answered, but I don't see how to do it.
