    I have been using Illustrator Cs5 for a long time to draw cartoons and I’ve always set the opacity fairly low and used the pencil tool to draw. I don’t understand how to lock the opacity settings for a tool/layer in CS6. Is there anyway I can continue to draw in a set opacity instead of having to click each object and set its opacity? Any help would be appreciated!!

    Thank you!
