Paste Appearance command
We need a way to quickly transfer appearance from one object to another.
For now there are several ways to do it.
Grab the Eyedropper tool. Go to tool’s options. Set both Appearance check-marks. Select the art you want to apply appearance to and click the one you want to copy appearance from with the tool (or vice versa with a proper modifier held).
This one requires me to go to the options before to set these check-marks and go there after to turn them off, because I don’t need these by default.
Save a graphic style from the object you need to copy it and apply it to the target one.
This requires to save a temporary style and delete it after. Still, is the fastest method for now.
Open Layers panel, click Locate button (which still doesn’t have a hotkey but can be recorded in an action, at least), grab the appearance filled circle marker and try to drag it over with the Alt held the target one, but not the object on the canvas, but the item in the same panel... the one you can’t locate now, because you have to locate both items. This is quite simple when you have, say, two object on your canvas, but is tough when your art has hundreds of objects.
Copy an object you want to grab your style from and command Paste Appearance with the target object selected. The most easiest one.... wait... we don’t have it in Illustrator.
Because there is none.
And we can’t make it via scripting, because scripts can’t create or copy graphic styles, which we could have used to emulate method 2 automatically. There are 2 requests about it:
So I’d like to see all of these implemented.
