Cannot paint

I can’t paint (fill in color) my drawings in Animate 2.
Only success is on already painted lines when selecting “paint”. I am sure the areas do not have gaps. I have been thinking that maybe the problem is connected to the marquee lasso or rectangle. Is there a way to deselect these, so it is just plain “paint”?

I would appreciate your help.

Best regards


Press k toggles to show/hide stroke. If you have used pencil line, it is possible the met lines are not closed. You can use close gap tool or close gap option in paint will close the open gap so that you can paint. There is also difference between paint and repaint tool that paint will paint on any painted area and also closed area but repaint only paint where it is already painted.
