    Vector Edges

    Knowledge Sponge
      Hello,

      If I create a simple cirle, the edges appear jagged. Is there a way to 'smooth' the edge?

      Thank you (I've been looking and can't seem to find a way to achieve this).

          Make sure you have anti-aliasing turned on, and add a soft, rounded stroke.

            In addition to Linda's advice, make sure your zoom level is at 100% or
            everything will display jagged. Also, if you have an object with a fill
            and no stroke, make sure the fill type is set to "Anti-Alias" in the
            Property Inspector (and not "Hard").

            HTH!
