Color

Specifies the color of the stroke.

 

Size

Size of the stroke line in pixel width. Note that this size is not scaled with resizing of the object or display. For example, a stroke size of three pixels will always be three pixels regardless of whether the object is reduced in size or enlarged in size.

 

Pattern

Draw Stroke Over Fill

When selected, the stroke is drawn after the fill is drawn. This ensures that the entire stroke line is visible.

Draw Stroke Under Fill

When selected, the stroke is drawn before the fill is drawn. This is useful if you want to enlarge the stroke size without the stroke itself overwriting the fill of the object.
