In Illustrator CS6, I would like to draw these trails for a map I'm making. Is there a way I can draw using the "Pencil" tool where when I draw, it draws a second line next to it? Is there a setting for that?
Here is an old map where you can see the double broken lines. I know how to set it so the line has gaps in it, but I need a line to be the same next to it.
A brush woukld do the trick though you can also creaate a grphic style.
Watch he video
I thought I described that in the video Scott?
I will point out to iRoss that if you choose the one pth with two stroke method that it is only good if you have a white background as the second path is white and has to be opaque.
That means if you place it over a section of a map that is say gray the white will show.
So if you need the space between the two dashed lines to be transparent theen thge brush method is the way to go.
You wouldn't need a brush. The two-strokes-method would be OK, but a little different
the knock out group is interesting and I had forgotten about it since has been posted at least two times before.
But Ifound out that it is not necessary to use black as the second top fill in order for this to work it can be any color including white and you can set the second fill to any opacity as well and you get this effect.
