I'm trying animate for the first time. I've following this tutorial and have gotten stuck on a couple things.

 

First, when I create a brush stroke with Fluid Brush Tool and hover over the edge there isn't a way to edit the outline of the shape similar to the video. How do I edit the shape?

Second, hitting the "v" tool does not allow me to edit/delete parts of the shape created with the Fluid Brush Tool.

1. make sure object drawing is NOT selected

2. using the keyboard to select tools requires using keyboard shortcuts.  by default, v is the shortcut for the selection tool.  when you press v, is the selection tool highlighted:

Even if Object Drawing mode is on - you can still edit the shape (as long as the OD container isn't actively selected). But yeah, I can't seem to figure how this doesn't work for the OP.

I can't seem to reproduce your inability to edit the shapes created with the Fluid Brush tool. I have tried using the Object Drawing mode and can still edit with the Selection tool and Sub-Selection tool. We may need more info but not sure what info specifically. It's hard to imagine you can't edit a simple shape.
