I didn’t realize there was so much cracking with the Eyedropper Tool in Adobe Illustrator CC 2014.
Check out the video above for the low-down.
I didn’t realize that you could use the eyedropper tool as a paint bucket for your appearance. You can use the attributes in the appearance panel by Option + Clicking on a shape. The shape will then take on that appearance. Now that I think about it, makes perfect sense. That’s how eyedroppers work in real life =P
If your eyedropper isn’t recognizing effects, multiple fills, multiple strokes, or any combination of those, you have to change the settings in the eyedropper options. This is considered a complex appearance. They eyedropper tool will not recognize complex appearances unless you check the box marked “Appearance” in the options.
