Hello,

I've been drawing on illustrator using the blob brush tool and eraser tool, everything was going fine until suddenly the brush tool started deleting chunks outside of where I click.

I would erase a part of a shape from one end, then erase another at the second end, then the middle area (where I haven't clicked) gets erased as well.

How do I fix this problem and make the eraser tool erase accurately where I click only, and not remove parts of the shapes automatically.
Note: I have attached an image of the problem's process.

I'm trying to repeat the problem but can't. Could you please share the file to test it on my AI example?

On my system and AI version (Win 11, AI 26.0.2), everything works fine.

Looks like some disconnect between your input tool (pen or mouse) and the system.

Did you try to reset Preferences? 

Do you use a tablet pen or a mouse? If it's a pen, what are its settings? Does it work good in other applications?

What time ago did you restart the system? Some memory cleaning often helps in the strange situations like this.
