Hi community,

I have been using AI for a long time and I have never had this problem before: once I prepare my brush with colors and configure I need to get filled the draw, I start making.

For example I start to make a circle and it supposed to be filled with the color I chose before, but I doesn't, automatically brush changes to only lines and gets no fill on it, all I get is an outline circle.

What do I have to do? I can't change it.

Can you check the title of your document if you are in Outline preview mode?

Also check in the Appearance panel menu if New Art has Basic Appearance is checked.

Hi, thanks for your help, but still can't.

Appearance panel menu has my configuration before making the draw, but after I draw something, panel menu changes just to lines without filling and also It's not in outline mode.

Is "New Art has Basic Appearance" checked or not?

Is the brush tool set to fill new objects?
