Randomly while I was working, my eraser tool started to act up. Now every time I try to use erase, the area I "erase" ends up surrounded by a thick, black outline- how can I change this or turn it off? I was using my eraser before and it was working fine, but now it seems to be "outlining" everything I want to erase- any suggestions for a frustrated artist?
The new document is clean, and I can erase correctly, but in my other drawing if I have a stroke activated I'm not sure how to get rid of it- even after eliminated everything out of the appearance panel the eraser-outline is still bold as ever- and it overlaps both layers instead of just the one im working on.
Go to the Appearance Panel make sure New Art Has Basic Appearance is checked.
Make sure your art has no stroke , if it does this is expected behavior.
Double click the Eraser Tool in the Tool Bar and check the settings and options for the Eraser tool.
It would be a great feature to have the ability to have strokes on any number of segment6s of an object but not all of them if theuse desired it.
