Was wondering if this has been happening to anyone else. The object drawing option doesn't seem to work in the latest update. I have it selected, but when I use the brush tool, it still draws in fills, rather than creating a drawing object.
works correctly for me.
try resetting your preferences, http://helpx.adobe.com/flash/kb/re-create-preferences-flash-professional.html
C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate CC \ and
/Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe// and
Drawing object applies only to "Paint Normal" Brush mode. As I can see you have selected "Paint Fills" as brush mode, Drawing object wont work in this case.
