All I could see are single lined shapes. Tried in properties, could not find it.

How do I draw double lined shapes. For ex: Double lined rectangles, ovals, diamonds, lines.

The full set of steps is a bit involved and involves some nuances that are hard to describe in text, so I've have put the instructions and a link to a screencast showing exactly how this is done below:

I'd recommend starting by watching the screencast first, because then you'll get a quick overall understanding of the process.
