Hi community.

I cannot figure out how to make small
A) ellipse
B) lines (poking outwards) using the stroke panel.

The dash and gap is confusing me.

Thanks so much, never thought leaving one of the options blank in order to make this work.

Kind regards.

It helps to understand how the different line caps work. A round cap, which I used for the stroke on the left circle, extends beyond the point at the end of a line segment. Since my dash size is 0, each dash is effectively a single point. The end of each point is a semicircle. Two semicircles, one on each side of the point, makes a circle.

For the path on the right circle I used a butt cap, which does not extend beyond the line segment. If you use a dash size of zero with a butt cap you might only get one device dot or pixel for the dash. This means the appearance of the dash will depend on the resolution of your output device, be that a screen, printer, or imagesetter. The result is unpredictable and might be so small it vanishes on the press, so I always use a specific size.
