When I hit the Eraser tool and select Eraser tool, the Eraser tool does not engage. Instead it shows up with the pencil as the selection and it has a circle and a slash right next to it. It worked as it should just a couple of projects agao. I'm just trying to make a transparent background on a Santa hat. I'm new to Illustrator and I can't find the issue addressed in any of the online education, if you can imagine that. I'm also new to this online community and I would greatly appreciate any tips to help me acheive my goal of putting a Santa hat on Big Foot. Thanks and regards.
