The Stroke panel makes it easy to change stroke attributes, such as
weight (width), position on the path, and its style. The weight of a
stroke represents the thickness of the line. A weight smaller than .25
may not print and a weight of 0 removes the stroke. In addition to the
width of a stroke, you can also specify the position (known as alignment)
of the stroke on the path (either center, inside, or outside) and
change the caps or joins of a stroke to sharpen or round endpoints and
corners. A cap is the end of an open line, while a join is a corner.

◆ Bevel Join. Creates a beveled

Style is what stands out on the page. You can change the stroke style
by applying dashes and arrowheads using the Stroke panel. When you
create a dashed stroke, you can choose to align the dashes around
corners and at the end of open paths or preserve the dashes and gaps
in the stroke (New!). In addition to dashes, you can also add and
define an arrowhead to a stroke (New!). After you add an arrowhead
to a stroke, you can adjust its alignment and scale.
