How do I change the width of shape lines

Nov 25, 2012 11:26 AM

I created a pattern in Photoshop CS6 for a project with shape lines which reside on shape layers. I want to change the line weight but after I create them it seems there is no way of changing the shape; even after I select line.


I can change the spread (uniform distribution) of the lines and lengh but not their weight. No matter if I choose all or just one of the lines which are all on the same shape layer the weight does not change. This does not make sense. Can somebody please chime in.

    If you used the Line Tool, then you really created rectangles and the "Weight" option does not modify existing Lines. Scaling them simultaneously to become narrower/wider rectangles then redistributing them may solve your problem (their CS6 stroke attribute may complicate matters) so try that first.
