I am following the instructions dutifully on the learn by video (Video2Brain) series for ai. In Chapter 5: Working with Grids and Guides we are instructed to move a stroke to the inside of a grid line during an icon creation exercise.

When the instructor does it, the stroke appears on the inside. When I do what appears to be exactly what she does, it disappears and the "variable width profile" area greys out. Am I missing something here?

    Go to the Appearance panel. What is above? When the stroke is below the area it appears. Drag it up above the area.

    But what have yu done? You selected the thorn crown and applied no colour. What shall be the difference if the no color is below or above the stroke? None.

    Go to the rounded square, aply a stroke AND a COLOUR to the SAME object and move above or below the stroke to see the difference.
