Somehow I made a compound path that is showing a fill color and a line color
in the Apperances panel that doesn't match what is displayed.
Can I some one take a look at it and tell me what I've got?
Why does the Appearance panel say the stroke is white and the fill is blue when on the screen it looks like a olive greenish line with no fill?
As Scott says the stroke is covering the fill completely. When you zoom in and set the stroke to 0.25 pt you can better see the result. You could also put in a background on one of the lower layers and the stroke would be more appearent.
ah ha! Got it; thank you both. Very helpful.
