Please help! Have I unknowingly clicked something off?
Normally, I have my little self created boxes down the side of my artboard, filled with the colours I am going to use.
I draw my lines (no fill) and then work out what colours I want said lines, normally with a quick select of line, "i" for eyedropper, then "shift+click" over the colour box I've chosen. For the past however long, this has changed the colour of the stroke to my desired colour, and only the stroke. For the past two days, it won't work, it adds a fill of that colour to my line and the stroke is nothing (because my little colour boxes where I eyedrop from don't have a stroke). Have I toggled something for it not to work anymore?
eyedropper settings (pressing enter whilst on the eyedropper), everything is selected. Have tried with various things not selected.
tried it out on a single layer, no groups, no layer locks
reset all the windows
restarted the computer
banged my head against the wall
Yes, I know I can set up swatches and what not, it was just a nice quick rhythm with the keyboard shortcuts this way.
I am on a pc, windows (10), 64bit and AI version 24.2.2
Hopefully I've just been click happy and unwittingly changed a setting somewhere. 🙂
