Hi,

Is there a tool in Adobe Illustrator CS4 that acts in the same way the Paintbrush tool does for erasing. The Eraser tool is really too Path based.

We could always paint in the opposing color and use the Pathfinder, but I wanted to know if there is a tool that is easier to use.

Best,

Justin

you can increase the eraser and try to erase

to increase and decrease you can use the    [    and    ]    keys...

and nice article for the eraser tool

exactly what are you trying to do, that the eraser isn't doing it for you?

The eraser function more like a selection tool where to us the paintbrush tool feels like your painting like in Photoshop. That's what were looking for but it needs to vector based.

I still don't fully understand this bit

We could always paint in the opposing color and use the Pathfinder, but I wanted to know if there is a tool that is easier to use.

Can you explain, maybe with a sample your brief.
