I am trying to find a solution to Illustrator not working correctly when I "draw" using the paint brush and an external pen. I'm trying to trace over a photo (embedded) and the response is intermittent - some lines appear and no marks other times. I do have the image zoomed in quite a bit and I wonder if that is related. In Photoshop, I can draw over a photo using the brush without an issue. I'd use this option but I want a smoother line like Illustrator offers. What can I do besides learning Illustrator pen tool (which I'm working on and it works without any issues)? I have a Lenovo tablet with an i5 processor and 8 GB RAM with no option to upgrade the RAM. Thank you in advance for you help!
Thank you for your insight. Other applications were closed so I'll have to figure out another way to draw. I'm assuming an external pen tablet would still have issues because it's using the same computing power?
