The Brush Tool

You use the Brush Tool to paint shapes. In this tutorial you will work with the Brush to create and modify shapes.

Step 1 - Click on the Brush Tool. Notice that there are several options?

Step 2 - Draw a circle on the Stage with the Brush Tool. Notice that the Fill color is used to draw the circle instead of the Stroke color? The Brush tool uses the Fill color as Flash considers the shape it draws to be a fill, not a stroke.
