Multiple fills and strokes in Appearance

The current Illustrator API doesn’t allow you to work with all the strokes and fills added to an object as with arrays. Similar to one active layer, the Illustrator API defines one active stroke and fill. We see their contents in the Color, Stroke, and other panels. You activate them manually in the Appearance panel. The active status indicator is an additional pixel frame around the color square.
