    Selecting a Color from a Color Theme in My Library for Illustrator doesn't change color

    Paul T. Fischer

      If I activate the fill color then,

       

      • Select a color in the swatches panel, it changes color like its suppose too
      • Select a color from a swatch library , it changes color like its suppose too (e.g. from the swatches panel > context menu > Open Swatch Library > Metal )
      • Select a color from a Color Theme that is stored in the Libraries Panel doesn't work


      How do I select a Color from this? (see below) If i double click, select the context menu, try to save to my swatches, I can't for the life of me figure out to select a color. Why is this so unintuitive?

          It may be that it is not yet implemented in Illustrator CC 2015. In InDesign CC, Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC, development of the CC library feature (InDesign) or the Library feature (Illustrator and Photoshop) has been very fast.

           

          Nevertheless, there are still gaps in the implementation that no doubt will be added in the new few releases.

            Hi Paul,

             

            So.... just to double-check: If you tap a color from your themes, then create a fillable shape, it doesn't automatically populate the shape? Or, if you change the color swatch in your tool panel, then create a fillable shape, it doesn't automatically populate it with the color?

             

            Sue.

              Hi Sue,If I create a shape then tap the a color swatch from the theme color, yes it does work, I realized.

              However, when I don't have a shape selected first, then it doesn't work. Note: Selecting a color by any other means, e.g. Color, Color Swatch panel, etc does change the fill color regardless if a shape is created first or not.  This is inconsistent behavior me thinks.

              Thanks for your help,-Paul

                  Hi Paul,

                   

                  Yep. Totally inconsistent. It sounds like the syncing is a wonky. Have you tried rebooting the application? And your computer? I know it sounds simplistic but sometimes that's all it takes.

                    Hi Sue,

                    Yes, rebooting seemed to have worked, strange.  I just verified the problem no longer exists using the steps I previously mentioned.  Oh well. 

                    I apologize for any inconvenience.  Thanks for your patience and assistance in this matter.

                    Kindly, :)-Paul
