Am I right in thinking if you select an object with gradient colours the Color Picker shows #000000 as it can't show multi-colours?

Hi Mark,

Could you tell us more about the contents of this file? Perhaps show us an expanded view of the Layers panel. Is anything locked? Any kind of transparency masking? etc…

Color picker might have issues. Are you sure you have the latest version 23.0.2?

Why don't you use the color panel?

That looks perfect to me. The colour is black. Black is RGB 0,0,0, which is also #000000. What don't you like about it?

Open the gradient panel, double click whichever stop you're trying to see the colour value of. If it's a swatch or in some other colour mode, select RGB from the little menu.

You can also use a colour measuring tool such as Digital Color Meter (macOS) - however it will measure the monitor colour so it may not be the exact value you set in AI (my pure red is a bit off... )
