  1. Thank you so much for this! It's brilliant. Clear and simple. I'm a total illustrator newbie and was contemplating head butting my monitor until I searched google and found your video. Cheers!

  2. Hi Terry! Great video! I wonder if there is a way to draw parallel lines as if routes go in the same direction – I tried moving lines closer separately but rounded corners obviously just wouldn't match…

  3. Thank you so much for the tutorial! It was easy enough for even an Illustrator newbie to follow and it definitely helped me make a subway map of my own πŸ˜‰

  4. Where's the pin tool? I can't found the bloody pin tool!
    Never mind, the pen tool seems to work just as well πŸ™‚

  5. So glad I found your channel! this video is exactly what I was looking for! How can I enclose that map in another bigger circle?

  6. Does anyone know any other program that lets you draw and colour lines AND lets you add rounded corners to them. I would really like to know as I only would want to use Illustrator for armature metro map creating and I don't have the money for it.

  7. Fabulous! I kept using the stroke palate & wondering why when I clicked "round joins" it would only round one side. Thanks for solving that mystery! I'll bet that is a common misconception! Thank you so much Terry!
