AI CS4 for Mac -I am trying to draw a border similar to those around (old) maps, with alternating colour rules inset in a heavier rule (that were used to indicate the scale) but my use is just decorative. Can anyone tell me how best to go about this or does anyone know of a tutorial for techniques like this please?
To create this with perfect corners you will have to make a pattern brush.There's a tutorial in online help how to make pattern brushes.
If corners don't matter to you that much, you can make a path with two strokes: a heavier black one below and on top of that a lighter on in white which is dashed. To add a stroke use the appearance panel.
Thank you Monika - I'll look up the brushes tutorial.
