I am very new to in design, I am trying to work the pen tool which previously worked when I was playing around with it on a previous version of in design but I have now downloaded the creative suite and when i use this in design if I am trying to draw a shape it creates black patches that firstly make it hard to move to the next point as it covers the image and then when I go to cut out the image and paste into its gone.
You have a fill selected as your default so when you create a shape it's being filled with color. Before you start drawing, set Fill to none and Stroke to a value like 1 point.
Thanks for the reply Steve! It worked!!!
