In Flash CS4, I'm trying to change the stroke width of my line or shape, with it selected, but the stroke width slider is greyed out (thus, unadjustable). Is it possible to edit a stroke width after something has been created? If so, how can this be done? I've tried selecting the line in all kinds of crazy ways, but still can't edit it.
I don't have CS4, but in CS3, as long as you're selecting the raw drawn object, you can use either the slider or enter a new value in the box. When you select the shape and line, does it appear all cross-hatched/speckled or is it a blue line surrounding it all? If it's the blue line, then you're not down to the raw graphic yet. You might also want to check to be sure the layer isn't locked.
Thanks for your thorough response!
I don't know what the problem was. Maybe I needed to restart Flash... Maybe I was working for too long and was delirious... anyway, it works fine now and what you said was accurate.
