Hi fellas, i need your support for this particular case...

Well, i am learning to use Illustrator and Photoshop because i am writting a scific novel and a wanted to draw a map of the galaxy where my story takes place. I tried to draw it on paper before, but it is easier to illustrate digitally.

I have done my galaxy using some layers and pencils (no problem here), and now i wish to join the planets with lines simuliting routes, but when i draw the first line and then the second one, the first line becomes "invisible", them with the third, the first and second dessapear and if i continue drawing more lines, so i do not know how fix it.

I attached a video showing this. Hoping your help thanks.

Just to be on the safe side: Is this a question for Illustrator?

 

  • Do your lines have a fill colour or an outline colour?
  • Do your lines have an outline thickness?
  • Do you use a brush?
  • Are your lines visible in the outline view?

 

Can you show us two screenshots. please?
Once in Outline view and once Normal view with selected path, open Layers panel and open Appearance panel.

Yes, in fact, my wife have told me 10 minutes ago the pencil has no color (it was transparent all the time). I put the layer behind the planets, but in font of the galaxy layer and now i can draw with no problem.
