A stroke, also referred to as a border, is a line that wraps around a layer. In design software, the stroke properties can be updated to customize its style, size, and color.
- A stroke can be solid or dashed. A solid stroke is an uninterrupted line. A dashed stroke consists of dashes or small lines spaced at uniform intervals.
- The stroke’s color and opacity can be updated from the color picker.
- The weight, or thickness, can be increased to make the stroke more perceivable.
- The position, or where the stroke sits on the layer, can be set to outside, inside, or center.
- The join, or how the stroke meets at the corners, can be set to miter, bevel, or round. Note that the join style does not impact the shape’s corner radius.
Figma, a prototyping tool and graphics editor, has more information about adjusting stroke properties.
