WHY ARE YOUR COLOR MODE SETTINGS SEPARATE BUT CALLED THE SAME?
SO YEAH, THERE IS A SEPARATE COLOR MODE IN THE DOCUMENT COLOR MODE.....SEPARATE AND DIFFERENT FROM THE COLOR MODE IN THE COLOR WINDOW.
WHAT PURPOSE THIS DESIGN CHOICE WOULD SERVE, IS BEYOND ME.
WHAT DOES THAT ACTUALLY DO? WHY WHY WHY WOULD ADOBE MAKE IT SO CHANGING YOUR DOCUMENT COLOR MODE IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FUNCTION THEN CHANGING THE COLOR MODE IN THE "COLOR," WINDOW? WHAT PURPOSE DOES THAT SERVE? WHY DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO TEAR MY EARS OFF AND POKE MY OWN EYES OUT.
CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.....FOR THE LOVE OF ALL HUMANITY AND ALL THAT IS SACRED ON EARTH, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TELL ME HOW MANY OTHER DIFFERENT PLACES IN ILLUSTRATOR I NEED TO CHANGE MY COLOR? ALSO, CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT OTHER CONVOLUTED AND CONTRASTING AND CONFLICTING SETTINGS THAT ADOBE DEEMED FIT TO SEPARATE BUT CALL THE EXACT SAME THING?
When you shout 'CHANGE MY COLOR', you better spend your efforts not for pushing Shift in blind rage (or factitiously switching Caps), but to explain in common way (which people use when they talk) what do you actually want.
If you prefer shouting (thus dropping your chances of getting help) then read manual... no, you can't, you have your eyes poked out :(
Well, it's 'beyond you' then.
