Hi,

I can draw a rectangle , using a rectangle tool which automatically fills with a color.
Is it possible to just have a rectangle outline in color without a fill ?

When I go to Edit menu - stroke and fill are grey out.

Thnaks.

Hello.

Yes. I would normally tell you to turn off your fill and turn on the stroke. But I don't remember the tool from that version. The most obvious solution would be to set the tool to path and then stroke the path. But I would still need to see the properties panel.......there may be another way there.

CS4 is such an old and different version that it may be hard to receive help without you posting screen shots of your options bar and properties panel when you have the Rectangle Tool selected.

After A long search I figured it out.
Draw a shape
Select that layer
On the bottom right corner there is a fx icon, click it, and
Then select stroke

That helps you to change color and thickness.

Your welcome and you might want your own copy downloaded because don't count on Adobe keeping those old archvies online forever. :)
