    How to adjust path stroke weight?

    buck415 Community Member

      I'm unable to adjust the weight of a path. Here's a 40 sec video (no audio, 1920x1080) that demonstrates I know how to adjust the stroke weight on a path, followed by a demo of it not working when I try to adjust it:

      http://stephenbuck.org/adobe/il-point-width/point-width.html

       

      Here's what I do in the video:

      First, on a path that allows the change:

      • Select an elipse.
      • Increase the stroke weight of the elipse.
      • Control-Z to undo.
      • Decrease the stroke weight of the elipse.
      • The above demonstrates I know how to adjust the path weight (at least I think it does).

      Next, on the path that doesn't allow the stroke width to be reduced:

      • Select path.
      • Increase stroke weight to demonstrate it increases.
      • Control-Z to undo.
      • Decrease the stroke weight to .25 to demonstrate it does not reduce in size.

       

      And that's the problem.

       

      What do I need to do to decrease the weight of the path I am trying to adjust?

       

      Thanks,
