I'm starting with a rectangle. All I get is a dotted outline. No colour

Asked by Mike Jones on 2018-08-12

Total beginner. Followed a tutorial to draw a rectangle. Selected the rectangle / square tool. When I draw, all I get is a dotted outline without colour. The tutorial shows it should be blue. Can't fill with the bucket tool. Help please.
