When I open a document or create a new document in my updated version of illustrator, I can see the shape outlines when an object is selected but no color. The color also isn't working even when I try to toggle between reverse fill and outline. The color appears to be the correct selection in the color panel, but I am not seeing it on the artboard. When I go to open the document, it appears normal in the preview, and it saves correctly as in any format. But, it will never open where I can view the colors.

Did you try to restart your machine/Illustrator?

If that does not help try resetting the Preferences:

I have restarted, shut down, etc.. the system and illustrator several times. 

 

I tried to reset the preferences, and that still didn't help... Any other ideas?

Not much other ideas.

Try to turn on Paste Remembers Layer in the Layer panle menu. Copy everything and paste it into a new document.

I tried that as well. Nothing worked.

 

I updated my IOS last night, and so far that seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks for your help!

Good to hear you've got it working.

Which version of macOS did you use and are you using now?
