I`m following this tutorial on multistrokes but for some reason, I am not able to duplicate/add strokes. Clicking on duplicate has no effect and neither does clicking on 'add stroke' below. What am I doing wrong?

The Appearance stuff has strange restrictions, which looks like a bug, except the Add controls are actually greyed out rather than non-responsive when they aren't functional, so maybe its deliberate. Text objects and Group objects (even without a Text member) cannot be given multiple strokes and/or fills, but Compound objects (even with a Text member) can.

By the way, there are also definite bugs involving multiple strokes/fills.

What anon2 has said is correct, it appears that you have two objects selected, try with just one.

Thanks for coming to the rescue @anon2 and @Old Bruce.  I just discovered that this specific issue is not a bug. Actually, I was trying to add multiple strokes to a piece of text and I didn`t know that this was a striving against the wind. That highlighted object in my screenshot above is actually one piece of text - letter 'Z' (Anurati font). Now I know better, thanks again!
