Hi All,

When double clicked in any object or text, Illustrator will allow you to edit it. I don't know why I can't do it from yesterday. 

 

Please help,

 

Thanks

This only works with the selection tools. Is perhaps "Text selection by path only" turned on in Preferences > Type?

Hello, I have the same issue since the last update. I click / selct an object or whatever then double click on the "short cut color swatches" in the tool bar. Nothing happens. This worked since years and just didnt work since the last update. its the same with the blend tool options. They only appear by going the long way: Object > blend > blend options. is this an preference that changed / has been enabled or disabled with the last update? and by the way the solution in this thread didnt help me. Would be great if anyone has the solution und please no alternate workaround. Just want the "old" use back. Miss it since 2 days... Many thanks in advance to the community.
