Hello. I've looked a previous threads and can't find a simple solution for what I see. I am trying to select a color with the eyedrop tool, not trying to style text.
1) hit 'i' on the keyboard
result: empty eyedrop tool leaning to top right
2) select a color from something in the frame
result: eyedrop tool appears 1/2 full and switches orientation leaning top left, NO COLOR CHANGES IN FILL OR STROKE
EXPECTED: If fill is on top, the fill color will change. If stroke is on top, the stroke color will change. When i do this, nothing changes.
Please help me understand what is going on and how to fix it. Granted, I use Illustrator and Photoshop much more often than i use InDesign, so there may be some quirks, but it seems not to work at all.
* MacOS Monterey v12.0.1
* ID v17.1
* I changed System Prefs to allow screen sampling and restarted ID.
I can't remember what the equivalent key is for Mac, but on Windows: hold down the Alt key when clicking the color you want to select from anywhere in your image (and it will either be for your Fill or Stroke, depending on which is on top in your tools.)
