Does anyone know how to center my newly created brushes with the path? When I increase the stroke it simply goes everywhere.

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. With the path selected, open the appearance panel and check if there is an effect added. If so, delete it.

  • Kinda need to see the brush artwork on its own, as well as the brush options.

  • I checked the appearance, but there is nothing to delete and I have also tried out different brushes, even the ones that are already provided, with the same results. I have also tried the calligraphic brush, but it is not giving me the effect I am looking for. Aug 8 '21 at 6:29

I would start by playing with the options of that particular brush:

To change the options for a brush, double-click the brush in the Brushes panel. Set the brush options and click OK. If the current document contains brushed paths that use the modified brush, a message appears. Click Apply To Strokes to change pre-existing strokes.

  • thanks for your reply, I tried to play with different settings from the brush, but whatever I do, it still moves away from the path... odd.. Aug 7 '21 at 15:27

The way I replicated your issue was by messing with the mask of the brush.

Use the menu>view>outline to see it.

If it's the case, just delete that mask and make a brush again.
