Started working on one of my designs. And when creating a shape with the pen tool over another shape. the fill was no longer a solid. I am now able to see strokes from the shapes on the back layer. I am baffled at how to return the fill back to a solid.
Can we see what the appearance panel and transparency panels say about this shape with a screenshot, perhaps?
check the appearance panel if there a blending mode applied or opacity. clear it and apply the color again.
If you don't want any Transparency, try selecting all, and in the Transparency panel, make the Blending Mode "Normal" and the Opacity 100%. This should fix everything going forward as well.
Hope this helps!
If that does not help, the Transparency may be applied to the layer.
Select the transparent object.
In the Appearance panel, select the top item named Layer
Reset the Opacitiy settings.
Make sure your fill is set to a color...
I tried both of those recommendations. I added the color red, originally I was using gray. Not sure if that matters. So far, I have deleted the object, remade it. tried every color. Reset the settings the best I could. I have tried both of those panels and looks at everything else I could think of. I'm lost on it.
In the Appearance panel can click click on the arrow to the left of the fill?
Maybe it is on the back
Edit> arrange> bring to front
Open new layer
Paste into place
Or from layer panel drag it to the top
I don't see that this question was answered. It is old and may not be worth an answer now but... Shift X on a MAC toggles color and transparency...
Shift+X swaps fill and stroke by default.
I don't think that has much to do with this thread.
