Black border appears in all objects in a specific layer in Illustrator

I can’t figure out why every time i use the shape tool to create something a black border appears around it. My stroke is off but it appears no matter what the black border appears when I use the shape tool.

It seems to only happen in the specific layer I am in, but not when I create a new one, so I’m guessing it has something to do with that.

How do I get rid of the border (from the pink rectangle in picture, for example)?


I suspect that you may have applied some graphic styles/effects to the layer. To fix it, try the following:

  1. Select the problematic layer in the layers panel by targeting it.

  1. Open the Appearance panel (Shift+F6) and remove any strokes, fills, or effects in there. The panel should look like this.
