I cannot see the Paintbucket tool in Illustrator CS6. I googled it and some users said it is in the menu together the Gradient Tool, however, my Gradient Tool button doesn't have a menu.
How can I enable the Paintbucket?
Click and hold the Shape Builder Tool
Then what? I'm trying to paint the background and I can't
Unfortunately most of us aren't that good at fortunetelling.
You might get better answers if you show us what exactly it is you want to "paint"
Ignore the square in the middle. I can't get it off, and it always is there everytime I open Illustrator. Anyways I was trying to paint or fill the background here. I was image tracing but I need to paint the background.
The rectangle in the centre looks like the artboard. Read about artboards in the manual. You might need to enlarge it.
In order to fill the background, you will need to draw a rectangle with the rectangle tool around everything. Then select all and fill with the live paint tool.
