How come the width tool can ne used on a path made by pen tool but not brush strokes?    Is a brush stroke not a path??

    It's the underlying math and data structures. For now simply accept it as it is and then keep your fingers crossed for CS7....

    Note that you can use the Width tool on art brushes and pattern brushes.

    Yes, I use width profiles on art brushes constently. I find though, that, in certain cases, the width profile setting is lost when the brush is changed on a stroke.

     

    Even with the frustrating limitations, using width profiles on custom brushes has really expanded the capabilities of Illustrator.
