The eye dropper is not picking up (selecting) any colors when I try to change the color of shapes or text.

Anyone know how to fix this? Its very frustrating to have to input hex codes every time.

I see there are many responses directed at "SAMPLE: ALL LAYERS"

...what worked for me was selecting SAMPLE SIZE: 3 by 3 average This can also be fond in the tool bar of the color picker toolScreen Shot 2021-05-27 at 8.50.05 PM.png

Incredibly frustrating yes, 100% agree.

 

I hope this helps!
