Eyedropper not working.
Eyedropper is not working. I'm trying to copy text attributes and stroke attributes and it copies the white from the artboard.
OS: Monterey 12.1
Illustrator 2022 26.0.3
Using eyedropper to copy stroke (weight and dashed stroke) and text attributes (typeface and color) and doesn't respond
Doesn't copy the actual attributes of the stroke, it copies the white color of the artboard or grey that I don't know where ir came from. When eyedropping text it copies only the color but not the type properties.
I'm an experienced Illustrator user, I've been using it since 1998 and this never happened to me.
Gisela, it’s not very clear what is exactly happening form the video.
You should capture the video from a screen directly next time, using an app.
Some more info needed.
Can you please check:
1. What are the current options for the Eyedropper tool? Double click the tool icon in the tool panel, or hit Enter while the tool is active to show the dialogue. Does it by any chance have both Appearance options checked in both columns? It should not matter though...
2. Are you sure you click the line precise enough? It’s easy to miss the line and grab the white from the background within a very small tolerance... and the cursor does not differ from background or object, sadly.
3. Is the appearance of the dashed stroke is simple enough? One stroke, above the no-color fill, no extra stuff? Can you check it the Appearance panel?
It could be just a mis-click ...or something wrong, depending on answers.
