I want to be able to draw with the paintbrush and create a path at the same time.
Here is an image to show what I would like to do:
The artist in the image above is able to draw a brush stroke while creating a path at the same time. When I try this I get a simple black line and instead of "path" in the upper left corner of the screen my screen reads "no selection." What settings do I need to change to be able to do this? I found this resource on Adobe's help page but all it really says is "draw a line like normal and you will have a path" but that isn't the case for me (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/brushes.html#draw_paths_and_apply_brush_strokes_simultaneously).
Thank you for any one who can help! I've been searching all over and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong!
