Applying Line, Fill and Color Attributes

Text and objects have line and fill attributes. Fill attributes are the color, blend, trapping and fill style inside any shape, path or character. Line attributes are the color, blend, trapping and stroke (or outline) of any shape, path or character. These attributes including color and blend can be applied to lines and fills independently.


To apply line, fill, color, blend and trapping attributes to selected objects: Select the object(s) with the Object tool. Choose Line & Fill from the Object menu to display the Line & Fill dialog box. Set the attributes. Click OK.


To apply line, fill, color, blend and trapping attributes to text: Select the text with the Text tool. Choose Line & Fill from the Type menu to display the Line & Fill dialog box. Set the attributes. Click OK.

The Line & Fill dialog box is identical for text and objects. The four tabs allow you to view Line, Fill, Screen and Trapping attributes.

To fill an object, click on the Fill tab and check the Filled checkbox. To stroke an object, click the Line tab and check the Stroked checkbox. When the Filled or Stroked checkboxes are unchecked, the object will not be filled or stroked, as applicable. When the Filled or Stroked checkboxes are set to mixed, the applicable attributes will not be changed when you click on OK.

Unlike most checkboxes in PageStream, the Filled and Stroked checkboxes can be manually set to mixed. This allows you to apply line attributes without applying fill attributes and vice versa. Applying many attributes at once to multiple objects can be slow, so set one of these to mixed when you are only changing one type of attribute.
