the width tool does not seem to work at all on anything,
we had the same problem at work, so I decided to try and finish a project off a work and just assumed the computer there was buggy,
I've googled it and only one other person seemed to have the same problem, and corrected it by changing the stroke to the inside (which I tried on a seperate shape and it did not work, I am trying to change the width of a stroked path)
I have tried to expand it.
All and any help will be greatly appreciated , all the other tools work fine. I am using CS6
