Hi, I am creating a design and wanted two of the lines to be cut at an angle to match to the outer edges cleaner. After finishing most of my design I noticed that that those two specific lines cut at an angle are thicker than the others and I can't make them smaller. It wont let me edit the stroke size and also when I click on them to see the color it comes out as a question mark. Is there a way to fix this or should I redo the whole thing? I'm not too familiar with AI.  (I attached a few photos below) I just want them (the third lines from bottom) to match the size of the fifth lines if that makes sense.

Redraw the lines with stroke color only without fill,

then outline the strok ( object-> path-> outline stroke) then trim the path.

You've managed to outline the strokes as shown by the highlight around the piece (as opposed to the central line in the other lines). How did you trim the lines?

I was trying to cut the edge at an angle. I outlined the stroke because it was not cutting at an angle but now I seems to be a path and I cannot get it to go back to un-outlined.

Thank you that worked! do you know how to cut off the bottom path of the half circle? I want to see how it looks without the bottom part and I'm so bad at this.
