so I just create a straight, uniform line and press Effect > Path > Outline Stroke... but nothing happens
not sure if I'm doing something wrong... or if there is a bug?
thanks for your reply...
the line has a black, 10 pt, uniform stroke on it.... I click the outline stroke command and nothing happens... an fx does appear in the appearance palette, but when I click the Outline Stroke item there nothing opens... every other effect opens a dialog window...
Try using Object>Expand Appearance. All Effects are live and only get rendered when needed. A dialog is not needed since the only thing that will happen when the appearance is expanded is to convert the stroked path into a filled object.
