In addition to regular strokes inside of Illustrator, you can also create dashed…and arrowhead strokes as well.…In this movie I'll explore those features and how you can utilize them to…enhance your artwork.…Let's first go ahead and create a new document by going up to the File menu and choosing New.…Once inside the New Document dialog box, I'll go to the Profiles and select Web,…then I'll select a size of 1024x768 and I'll hit OK.…That creates a new blank document for me, and I'm ready to go.…I'm going to quickly draw out some shapes on the artboard, so I'll grab a…square and I'll hold down my Shift key to do that, draw it out using the…Rectangle tool, and then I'll go ahead and grab the Line tool, and I'll draw out a couple of lines.…
We'll worry about the lines in a minute.…For now, I'm going to focus only on the square.…So I'll come up here and I'll zoom in, I'll grab my Selection tool and make sure…I have the square selected.…With the square selected, I want to give it a fill color, so I'll give it a fill…
