Indesign 2021 eyedropper tool set for font pickup, does not pick up font info. Selected type only with type tool, get eyedropper set to type select, click on unstyled type, everything changes to a black box. Sometimes, in earlier versions, I have gotten this to work. New Indesign 2021 eyedropper tool does not seem to be working. Can you help?

Hi @Pam Swanson, double click on the eyedropper, this should open the eyedropper options – check if the font properties are selected (can't look right now, but if I remember correctly it's under character options and then font)
