In Adobe Illustrator I've changed the paint brush style to something else, (this happens with stroke size too) but the moment I start trying to paint the settings revert back to what they were before I started.

Why is it doing this? How are you supposed to change the stroke/style of the brush if it keeps reverting back?


In the Appearance Panel Menu make certain "New Art Has Basic Appearance" is not checked.
