I have a problem with the eyedropper tool in illustrator cs6, I can't pick a color with shift+click for a gradient color.
The color is picked but not apply in my shape!
I look over this forum, it's seem be a bug and a new version of illustrator correct that 16.0.4.
But I can't do this update, I check and I have no update available...
I'm on PC win7. How can I do?
Ps: it's seem I have another bug, with the deplacement of pattern when I double click on the black arrow, I change values but sometimes nothing happen...
It's almost the end of april and Adobe still hasn't fixed this bug? Terrible! I noticed no improvements with the update, and now my workflow is handicapped thanks to this. At very least release a downgrade patch!
Hello! I have the same problem and actually I doubt that this one is a bug since Deke McLelland successfully demonstrated this technique in one of the earliest builds of Illustrator CS6 for Windows. At the moment I have version 16.2 (on Windows 7x64) and yet still cant get this trick to work. So I suppose there's got to be some solution.
If it's a bug, then it doesn't make any sense at all. How Deke McClelland did manage to perform this task somewhere in the autumn of 2012 on a PC using CS6? The only explanation would be that this bug appeared in some later build of Illustrator CS6, wich doesn't sound very plausible to me. Otherwise I just don't get it...
Yes! You remember me, i have read a topic on this, and to solve the problem the people use time machine to undo the update (on mac).
So the bug appear after an update (seems 16.0.2), i should reinstall illustrator cs6 16.0.1 and not cs5.5.
I gonna try this tonight.
