Turning a stroke into a delineated shape has many benefits.
Many designers outline the strokes before handing over a project file to ensure that the design looks the same regardless of who opens it.
This technique for outlining strokes is especially important for logo designs, since you want the logo to always look the same, regardless of where and how it is used.
Whatever the reason you want to convert a stroke into a shape, the process is very simple.
Here’s how to do it:
- Open your Illustrator project file
- Select the stroke shape you want to outline
- In the top menu, select Object > Path > Stroke Outline Stroke.
