Hi, need some help...

 

I do a lot of double lines around my letters.

so the offset path in AI is my best friend :-)

but I want to go further with AD & AP now.

Whats the fastest way to do this without an offset tool in AD?

 

thnx!

Hi Olaf,

There's already plans to implement a offset tool later, meanwhile one way to get a similar effect is to use the stroke width of a duplicate object to create the offset. To do this duplicate the object you want to offset and give the duplicate a large stroke (this "defines" the offset value).

If you want/need to convert the boundaries of the stroke (of the duplicate) into separate shapes, select the stroke, go to menu Layer ▸ Expand Stroke (currently this command adds superfluous nodes - this should also be improved later), then Layer ▸ Geometry ▸ Divide.
