In Illustrator for iPad, I would like to create a series of paths with the Pencil Tool like the one shown in the first image, that is, with a specific stroke width and width profile that I have set in the Appearance Panel.  But when I go to draw a second path, I find all the parameters have been reset to the defaults.  This results in the lower path shown in the second image.

 

I’m very familiar with Illustrator for Desktop, where once the appearance parameters are set, they are maintained until they are modified.

 

Today I’m looking for clues how the appearance parameters can be maintained in In Illustrator for iPad for multiple paths.image1.jpgimage2.jpg

I don't think that is possible at the moment. There is a feature request: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/931888-illustrator-ipad-feature-requests/suggestions/444220...

This is inconceivable to me.  We are allowed to set “sticky” appearance parameters on the Paint Brush tool but not the Pencil Tool?  The Pen Tool seems to act like the Pencil Tool, that is, unworkable.

 

The link you’ve given for a feature improvement doesn’t seem to address the very basic problem I’m experiencing.  I’ll try to figure out another way of asking for a fix.  Thanks for your time!
