Hi, I'm new at Illustrator but have been playing for some days with it so I feel comfort using it. Although latley I have had one problem which I'm unable to fix. I have this circle here and everytime I decide to "erase" it becomes like a brush.cicrlce.PNG

 

This is what I'm talking about:

Does anyone have any idea why and how can I fix this please? Also I'm unable to change brush color...

Thanks for your time.

Hi. If "erase it" means remove it, select it and press Delete or Backspace. You'll need to select it before.

How do you expect the result to look like?

 

The eraser works like mill-cutting a shape.
