I'm very new to Adobe Illustrator, and having problems with the pen tool.
I have a path created that is a single straight line.
(appears as a light blue line, with anchor points at both ends, within a blue bounding box)
This path is very precisely created exactly where I need it, relative to another object.
I have been unable to assign it "ink", so it only appears as the light blue path, but doesn't actually appear in my graphic. I believe I need to assign a "stroke" to it, but have been unable.
In my experiments with the Pen tool, it seems paths only get a stroke / ink when they have at least 3 points, and represent a closed path. Is this right?
If so, how can I "color" the line-segment I've created.
(note: precise placement is important, not just an approximate position via the mouse)
