Colour of object incorrect
- macOS Mojave and Window 2018
I have this problem with second times. whether text or object, the colour shown don't match with actual. you can see my upload image. the path text should be show as black colour. and why it shows as white colour?? Have someone face this problem before?
It feels like your Eyedropper tool was in Appearance grabbing mode and you have a fill applied over the color of text. Open the Appearance panel and check if you have a fill applied to the text as a separate item there.
If yes — press clear Appearance button and then apply the color you need with the Color or Swatches panel.
Then, pick your Eyedropper and hit Enter to open its options. If you have two top 'Appearance' listed options checked — remove them. Then the tool will grab attributes rather than a complex appaerances when used.
If no — please share the file for investigation.
Ai and particularly Appearance are powerful tools! But, as always, using something powerful can lead to powerful mistakes :) Good luck!
