Hi! I'm using the paintbrush tool to draw circles in Illustrator. I'm having a problem with the edges on the inside of the circles being jagged and not smooth like on the outside of the circles. Is there a way I can solve this? Thanks!iexample.jpg

Hi! I've already tried ctrl+e, but that doesn't solve it unfortunately. When expanded, it looks like this.

I'm using a wacom tablet. It seems to only happen to the lines I've used the smooth tool on.

Maybe a setting with the Smooth tool (it does not look very smooth).

The orund brush? Are you sure you need a brush at all? Or would a simple stroke do?

Hi! I tested the pencil tool now. The problem only occurs with the paintbrush tool, so I'll use the pencil tool instead. Thanks for the help!

The brush tool will always apply a brush to your stroke.

The pencil tool can be used without a brush.

 

Glad you could solve it.
