Yes, yes you are.
Was this for desktop Photoshop or Photoshop Touch? This is the Photoshop Touch forum.
For PS Touch, make sure you have a layer (or a selection within a layer) selected. Tap the "more" icon (looks like an ampersand or "&") in the upper right > Fill & Stroke.
I can instruct if you're talking about the desktop version.
thank you very much,
the problem was that I do not select the area previously
