Every vector-based object (for example paths, rectangles, ellipses, and text) can be colorized with a fill and a stroke. A fill is a color, gradient or pattern inside an object. A stroke is the outline of an object or a path. The fill and stroke settings can be defined in the Color/Fill/Stroke panel.
- Choose Window > Color/Fill/Stroke.
- Click the different tabs to apply fill and stroke colors.
