Why is my brush acting up?

Everytime I try to draw something with my brush tool on Animate it would always keep drawing the line, even when I wouldn't want it to do that, whenever I draw ANYTHING the brush keeps drawing even when I want it to stop, it looks all inky and weird whenever it does this, it's incredibly annoying and I need for it to stop. Any ideas?

It may be useful if you record your screen, so that others can see the issue you're facing.

I tried to record the problem, I thought the exact same idea that you have.

But it would not show the issue I was having, it kept hiding it's true colors and it didn't seem like the problem was happening nor showing at all, but my brush was still acting quite strange.

That sly little brush tool knows when the screen is being captured and decides to behave just to mess with you 😉

Sorry, just kidding. So the issue is, as I can only imagine, you draw, you stop drawing, but the "line" keeps going beyond the point where you stopped drawing?

Yes,

although the problem is sort of fixed now, all I really needed to do was unable Windows Ink, then somehow it stopped acting up for a bit.

' From time to time though it would still constantly draw when I wouldn't want it to, but overall the brush tool is acting fine...

For now.

Thanks for posting the follow-up. Yeah, that pesky Windows Ink thing tends to rear its ugly head from tiome to time. Glad you sorted it.
