Brush keeps switching to "touch calligraphic brush"

Hello everyone

I am trying to paint with a uniform, basic brush, but every time I select it and start drawing, it switches to touch calligraphic brush, see below. I cannot delete the brush it keeps switching to. This happens whether I am using my tablet or my mouse (CC, and Mac user as you can see). My workaround is to create a different calligraphic brush that looks more like the basic one, but I'm still curious as to why this is happening.

Thanks!

"Uniform, basic" brush means: no brush at all.But the brush tool cannot draw without a brush. So it will always apply whatever is present.If you want to draw without a brush, use the pencil tool instead.

It is strange you saying that. I can paint with a few lines with BASIC brush, then after a while (or when I'm hitting ctrl+z), it turns into calligraphy brush, which I don't want to use. I can't use Illustrator now, because that brush makes thick, ugly lines.

There is no "Basic" brush.

Clicking on "Basic" removes the brush.

The brush tool won't work without a brush so it applied whatever is listed first in the brushes panel. The very moment you draw with it.

Oh. Well then I guess I have egg on my face and my workaround was the correct solution all along and it was down to semantics. Good to understand though, thanks!

This support person specifically seems like a bot. Theres dozens of people saying that they have already used the brush, and even you managed to use it for a while the way we wanted, but acordingly with her theres no way. So were all lying?

Community Guidelines: "Be kind and respectful..." she answered in other issue equal to this with big red words those same things.

Select 'basic' in the brushes panel or the control bar.

Select the brush tool and draw a path.

Select the path. Look in the appearance panel. What brush does it say you used?

This "support person" is not a support person at all. I am not even Adobe staff. As about 95% of people answering in this forum I am a volunteer.

 

And I am just stating the facts. I can't tell you any other thing. There is nothing to excuse here or to be sorry for. It's how the software works. So what should I tell you?
