Can Not Draw Simple Line

I download GIMP 2.10.12

I have created the beginning of my artwork. I now require lines. No matter what I do I cannot get results. I choose pencil, Choose black, hold down shift key and click beginning and end. And no line.

Can someone help?

Thank you,

There are a few possibilities. Check the attached screenshot

1. There is a tiny active selection. Can be so small it is not noticeable. Use Select -> None to close any selection.

2. The brush is an empty clipboard brush. Select a different brush.

3. The brush mode is not suitable. Check and change to Normal if required

4. The opacity is set to zero. Increase the opacity. Still in the dialogue check that dynamics is set to off and Force is not zero

If the tool icon has a bar symbol against it it might be

5. The pixel and/or alpha lock(s) are on. Click to toggle on/off

6. Using a layer with visibility off. Click to turn visibility on/off

If you have more than one layer it could be that you have one of the lower layers selected as the active one.
