I've deleted the Illustrator on the Ipad app. Rebooted. Redownloaded the app. I've made bluetooth forget the Apple Pencil. Re-paired it. I even did a hard reboot. Options for Apple pencil are off in Settings.
In the app, my pencil and my finger cannot select anything from fly out menus because they instantly disappear. I can sometimes blindly select something and it works, but the menu instantly disappears. I can hold the pencil tool icon and the fly out appears, but I cannot select it.
Layers panel works -- meaning I can click on it and it will stay open until I click again.
Properties panel works
Precision panel works
Every other flyout menu item does not, including the color picker and smoothing.
I can still draw, can edit. On a selected shape, I can move it, duplicated it, delete it, but opacity, stroke, layer order disappear immediately. I can, however, lock and change layer order in Layers panel.
For whatever reason, the app started working like normal today. BUT....
But I created a little pug and used the shape builder tool to carve out a round shape and now I cannot select the grouped item by the arrow tool or by direct select tool. I assume it's because it was converted to a path, which might explain why only the pen and pencil and eraser tool work. I just want to resize it, but I can't. I made it very small when I started. I don't know if that's part of the problem. But it annoys me that I cannot select the pug at all. I don't think it should be working this way.
I rebooted the app and I restarted my iPad pro, but I find that I cannot draw anything else in the file. I can't make shapes. I can't even change the color without it snapping back to what it was before (which was no color).
