I had to reset my computer and now I cannot find where the setting is hid to use the pen and pencil with brush strokes.

 

This should be a very sinple setting but you hide your settings in such obscure places it really makes your customers suffer.

 

This has taken me 4 hours, I have used Illustrator for over 20 years, Why is everything so hidden?

It litterally took me a year to find the setting to make things scale proportionaltey,

like people genrally preffer things to distort when scaled (the default) lol. wow.

Thank you so much!

OK, to use the pencil tool or pen as a brush you dont go to pen or brush settings you go to appearence panel, then click the upper right corner of that panel, then unselect new art has basic appearance. WHEW, not intuitive at all. Thanks a ton TON!
