Pattern Brush Doesn't Keep Original Shape in Illustrator
I created a circle (using the shape tool and while holding down shift), and turned it into a pattern brush. Then I applied that pattern brush to another circle with the intent of getting a circle of circles, but it doesn't work like that. I tried adjusting the stroke, pattern scale, and pattern spacing, but to no avail. What am I missing?
Use a scatter brush if you want to conform to the object, use a pattern brush to conform to the path.
