Not sure what I mightve pressed but I have no idea how to undo this.
Say I color pick from the character, it shows it as blue but still outputs in the a completely different color. Possibly complete opposite color even. Even if i select a new color the color picker and live paint bucket tool will show the opposite color. Makes it incredibly annoying to work with.
That is odd.
I use Live Paint like it is a drug. LOVE IT.
Actually have been using it on a lot of my live streams on Behance.
Is the color the top color on your color selector?
Look at this live stream that I did on Behance towards the end of it I use the Live Paint feature... and I do it in a cool unique way.
I will reinstall Illustrator and clean the prefences. Try it agian and see if it is working for you. Great feature! I use it daily.
I also use Shape builder !
If resetting the preferences does not help:
- check if the soft proof is active
- try and select View > Preview on CPU
