In Indesign 3--I created an Elliptical Circle on a black background. I want the circle to be "THICK WHITE" Circumference. I can only make the circle either solid black or solid white. I want the circle to be solid black with the circumference of the circle in "THICK WHITE".
I'm a beginner in this. Somebody gave me a suggestion: "Select the object and make sure the Stroke panel is open (Window>Stroke). Select the size and make it Paper color."
I went and selected the object as suggested. I then opened the "stroke panel". I could not see any size to select and could not see where to change to paper color. When I change to paper color, the whole circle became white. The only things I see in the stroke panel are as follows: I saw "weight" "Miter limit","cap", "join", "type", "start" "end", "gap Color", "gap tint" and played with all of them and I could not make the circumference "THICK WHITE".
I'm posting this as a question in the hope somebody can give me a clearer answer. The above response to me ( "Select the object and make sure the Stroke panel is open (Window>Stroke). Select the size and make it Paper color.") was short and sweet but it did not help me. Thank you.
Sorry! This should have been InDesign CS3. This goes to show how much of a beginner I really am.
See your other thread where I explained the color proxies...
The size of a stroke is correctly termed "weight" and there's a filed for that with a dropdown in the stroke palette, or you can type your own number in.
