I've searched for my issue but cannot find an answer to what exactly is happening. I have a png image in Illustrator, and when in Image Trace, I click "Trace". What it does is check mark "Preview" and then grays "Trace" out so that I can't click it to trace the image. I'm stuck in preview mode and cannot follow through with the image trace. Am I missing something?

Tracing creates a live object. So it might not look like it, but maybe it has already been traced and you jut need to expand it in order to get the paths.

Could you please some more information as follows

1. Which version of Illustrator are you using?

2. Which operating system are you working on Mac or Windows?
