I have two open files in illustrator and I want to use the eye dropper tool to select a color from one document and use it in the other. Is there a way to do this?
Perhaps there is a plug in but I do not know of it.
Edit I am wrong You bring into focus the document you want to have the object change color and select it.
Then bring into focus the document with the object you wish to pick up the color from
then do not select that objectt but rather simply click with the eyedropper tool and drag the eye dropper tool on to the document that contains the object you wish to change color.
That should do it
I got it wrong again.
What you actually do is bring inot focu the document witht he object you want to change and selecct the object
then click the object with the eyedropper tool and hold the mouse down and drag iut to the document object with the color you want to bepicked up and that will do it.
