I am using the new version of inkscape (1.2) on a MacBook Pro, and when I try to make lines or shapes I am unable to see the fill or stroke that I adjust. I can adjust the stroke thickness to whatever value I want, along with the stroke colour or fill colour, but I do not see any of the colour appearing. When changing the value of the stroke thickness, I can see the highlighted edges of the stroke changing appropriately (as shown below in blue), but it is not 'filling' the stroke with a colour.
I have both the 'A' and opacity values set to 100, so this is not what appears to be the common solution to similar questions I find elsewhere online.
Does anyone know what is going on, or see anything wrong with what I am doing?
This never happened to me in the old version of inkscape.
