When I copy some text in Illustrator, say red text, and my color well is set to pink, the newly pasted text is now pink?
Here is a short video of the problem, me copying the top text and without changing anything, pasting it. Note the color-well is set to black
I'm simply Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V text. regardless of the panels, it should paste *exactly* what I copied. I happened to be working on some black text when I took the video, red/pink or black/grey is immaterial.
I don't know, after some more experimentation, it doesn't work that way on mine. It seems to default to the black of the Type tool for you but not for me. There seem to be some newly introduced bugs in the Copy/Paste work flow in CS6. If you check around this forum you will find other reports of similar problems.
