My variable width profile is not working. While using the brush tool in Illustrator, the width line won't vary. It always appears uniform. Please help!

Try drawing using your pen tool, then the variable width tool should work.

Thank you very much. This does work. So the width variable does not work in the Brush tool?

Variable widths don't work with some brushes.

Draw with a pattern brush or an art brush and you can apply variable width.

 

What you can't do is draw with "Basic", because that means "No brush" and the brush tool won't draw with no brush.
