I cant seem to use my paintbrush tool. until starting illustrator today it was fine. now one the tool is selected when i hover over the image i wish to paint on i get a grey and black no entry symbol come up. does any one know what might have happened or can give me advice? thank you
The layer is locked ?
check the layers panel
nope - got frustrated so i closed it all, shut down my pc and restarted and it sorted itself. a worrying glitch none the less.
Are there brushes in the brushes panel?
If not, you will need to add at least one.
You opened a JPEG.
Try and create a new file. Then place the JPEG in it.
