Adobe Illustrator draws multiple shapes while drawing single shape

I’m trying to draw single shape using shape drawing tool in Illustrator but,
when I hold click and slide my mouse, it draws multiple shapes. How can I resolve this issue ?here is the screenshot of the issue.

Answer

Well, This usually happens when using the Tilde (~) key.

It’s a “Continuous Duplicates Based on Mouse Movement” function and combined with Alt/Option, Shift/Command and spacebar you can create new and complex effects.

Are you sure your Tilde key is not pressed or locked somehow?
Also, try drawing a circle while holding the Tilde key pressed…

I’m asking cause I don’t know of a setting in Illustrator that will do this automatically…
