Can someone explain the function of these two menu commands?
I'm using Iluustrator cc 27.6.1
Thank you for your reply.
I gone through both tutorials and both of them was explaining Effects>path>outline stroke
Can you please send me some links explainging Effects>path>outline stroke
How it works and when to use. I tried serching it on google and youtube but coudn't find anything useful.
That's why I have posted this topic here.
Outline object can e.g. put a frame around a placed photo.
That is probably what it is used for most.
On text is does the same as Convert to path. But it does so "live"
These effects are import as in-betweens. To achieve things that cannot be achieved without them. You will only recognize what they are needed for when trying it out. There is no complete tutorial about these effects.
Please see my screenshot. That is how you need to apply Outline object.
With the text it is needed for alingment. But actually that workaround is not needed anymore in most cases, since Illustrator can align to the text on its own.
Do you see the Appearance panel in my screenshot above? That's how it needs to look there.
If you do not know how to use the Appearance panel, please watch this: https://youtu.be/zXvRbN03MzQ
Yes, I know how to use Appearance Panel. But it doesn't help. Changing staking order does nothing.
I would be greatful if you could post 1min video using these commands.
Trust me, 1 minute of video will not be sufficient.
Would you also watch 5 or even 10 minutes or would I waste my time doing that?
I will watch even hours but I must understand how these command works and where to use them.
Thank you so much! This was really helpful.
Turning on preview bounds in preferances was end of my frustration.
It would be nice to see everyone of your examples selected and accompanied with a screenshot of the appearance panel.
I have posted a video as well as screen shot.
Your video is very blurry but I can detect that you apply the Outline Object to the image instead of to a fill on top of the image. It would have been much clearer if you had accompanied the example with the corresponding appearance panels.
