How to create a transparent stroke in Illustrator
I'm trying to reproduce the iPhone battery symbol. It has a gap between the fill and the stroke. I successfully managed to do it with the appearance palette, as you can see below:
It works well if the background is white. However, once i put an image as a background...
I want the gap to be transparent, rather than white.
How can I do that?
Set the opacity of your white stroke to 0, then check "Knockout Group" from the main transparency options of the path (not of the stroke itself).
