Every time I draw with the brush, and once I lift my pen away (or unclick the mouse), Flash decides to select the drawing, and once I start drawing my next part, it un-selects the first drawn line and selects the new one, and keeps doing this over and over again.
I start drawing with the brush, and on 'Properties' it says 'Brush'. But once I've drawn, and let go, 'Properties' now says 'Drawing object'. (And it definitely wasn't doing this before. In-fact, 'Properties' remained saying 'Brush', and not changing at all - so hence me knowing that something has gone tits-up!
It wasn't doing this last time I used it, so I must have knocked a button / command or what-not.
I'm new to Flash, hence not knowing what the hell has just happened.
(And I don't want someone answering this telling me that I have to MAKE SURE its a real version, and not actually answering my bloody question.)
So if you are capable of actually answering this for me, then please do.
And don't 'answer' with something irrelevant!
Thanks, and looking forward to you reply

(And no, it isn't to do with my graphics tablet or mouse. It's simply o do with a setting turned on/off in the program. But I just don't know where to find & fix it)
(And it doesn't need updates! - I REPEAT! - This is just a function turned on/off that is causing this!)
You appear to have triggered the Object Drawing mode.
Press the J key on your keyboard and see if it returns to what you want. That might be what you did to trigger it to start, otherwise you would have to have selected the control directly.
To get a better idea of the animal you let loose, with the brush tool selected move down and hover over the drawing controls below the drawing tools and find the one that has a popup label of "Object Drawing (J)"... it is the one with a circle surrounded by a rectangle - kinda like what you get when it is on. If it is/was selected then you would be in the Object Drawing mode.
I must have pressed 'j' instead of 'k' (for fill tool)
As idiotic as i feel right now - thankyou anyway!
