These red line appeared over every path in the design I was working on and I cant seem to get rid of it, it even appears when the image in exported. I know it must have been caused by a button I pressed by accident but cant seem to work out what by googling the problem. Changing the path color just changes the color under the red lines. Would love some help with this! Thanks!

    Can you select everything and include a new screenshot including the appearance panel?

You probably applied an (outline?) effect to all the shapes, try going to the Appearance Panel and deleting any unwanted effects.

Window → Appearance or Shift+F6

Appearance Panel

Select the un-desired effect and Delete

Since this is altering everything on one layer, the stroke may be applied to the Layer itself.

enter image description here

Highlight the layer in the Layers Panel, then check the Appearance Panel for a stroke and remove it.

  • I don't think that's it but it does only seem to affect the one layer, so I could just copy and paste it all to a new layer. But I guess that doesn't really help anyone else who might have the issue Commented Jan 23, 2019 at 0:40

    Actually that was totally it! Just had to click through the selection portion of the appearance menu a couple of times. Thanks so much! Commented Jan 23, 2019 at 0:42
