064 Customizing stroke styles

Hi! I'm Mike Rankin and welcome to InDesign FX. In this week's effect, we'll take a look at how to make custom stroke styles. InDesign comes with a bunch of built-in stroke styles that you can use to create different stroke effects on your objects. You can also create your own unique stroke styles when none of the built-in styles gives you the look that you want. In this video, we'll take a look at the kind of cool things you can do with custom dashed strokes. We'll make strokes that appear only at the corners of objects like this one. We'll make strokes that appear only on the sides like this one, sort of looks like brackets. And we'll make strokes that even look like these valentine hearts here.

This is achieved with a custom stroke style. So I'll switch over to my other document, I'll take my Rectangle Frame tool, click in the document and I'll make a new rectangle that's 40 picas wide by 30 picas high. I'll give it a 10 point...
