I am following this tutorial on Custom Lettering
In one of the steps, it says " Using the Brush Tool (B), with the “Basic” brush; use the Width Tool (Shift+W) to adjust the width of our new path"
I tried doing this in Illustrator CS5 but it seems that the width tool is not able to expand my newly created path.
Based on googling, I found this site its say's width tools works only on Art Brush and pattern brushes.
I tried using an Art Brush and Pattern brush and I was able to use the Width Tool on them.
I am just confused, how do I make it work on a brush with a basic settings that is based on the tutorial that I am following.
