Illustrator Tip. - Creating Dotted Lines in Illustrator

Making dotted lines in illustrator is a little bit of a trick. At first most users would say, "O that's easy!" and then get stumped as they can't find the brush they were thinking of, or the strokes pallet just is not giving them the options they were hoping for to make dots instead of dashes.

But really that is exactly where it is done.

Go to the strokes pallet.
The key is to use:
dash set to 0pt
gap set to 8 pt.

Hope this helps.
