"NEW ART HAS BASIC APPEARANCE" APPEARANCE panel options NOT working for BRUSH
On the desktop version of Illustrator.....
When you use the pencil tool with 'NEW ART HAS BASIC APPEARANCE" set in the APPEARANCE panel options, any subsequent/new pencil art has a basic appearance as it is supposed to.
When you use the pencil tool with 'NEW ART HAS BASIC APPEARANCE" NOT set in the APPEARANCE panel options, any subsequent/new pencil art has the same appearance as the last made pencil stroke as it is supposed to.
THESE TWO 'NEW ART HAS BASIC APPEARANCE" SETTINGS in the APPEARANCE panel options unfortunately DO NOT WORK this way when using the Brush tool.
The Brush tool ALWAYS reverts back to the previously drawn brush stroke settings REGARDLESS of the 'NEW ART HAS BASIC APPEARANCE" settings in the APPEARANCE panel options.
(On the ipad version of Illustrator none of these APPEARANCE settings/options are even available, where EVERY stroke simply reverts to BASIC APPEARANCE, which is annoying in the other direction!)
I simply want the brush to work like the pencil tool manages to do when 'new art has basic appearance is set' in the submenu options.
This tool currently uses the last brush used regardless of the 'new art has basic appearance' settings.
If you create a new document and use the brush tool the set 'basic appearance' is a 5pt round calligraphic stroke....when you select 'new art has basic appearance' any subsequent new stroke should be a 5pt round calligraphic strok, not the last brush used.
Matt, not sure if I get a confusion.
The Brush tool works with brush strokes. Brushes are considered to be complex appearance. This option does not influence the Brush tool exactly because it’s specialized one, and won’t be able to operate without creating a complex appearance — otherwise we get a Brush tool which doesn’t produce brush strokes. What is the point of it then?
Please give some examples of what exactly do you want to achieve with a brushless brush... I am trying to understand the reasoming.
