Paint Bucket tool not applying fills or any property

I feel really dumb for asking this but I’m new to UI design and I recently starting using Figma.

I for the life of me cannot apply fill to a simple rectangle vector, or any vector at all. I create the vector, click on the paint bucket tool, and even get the blue dashes to appear over the vector but I can’t apply any color I choose.

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can’t apply multiple colors to one vector object, if that’s what you are trying to do. You need to split it into different layers.
