just wondering if anyone else its having the same problem with eye dropping tool with sampling type. When using the tool trying to copy a type specs from another text frame it does not pick up the type specs but it picks the specs of the frame instead.
I am working on an iMac and OS Sierra 10.12.1
Any ideas anyone?
No problems here in the same configuration:
(1) With Eyedropper tool drag across the type whose format you're copying:
(2) Move over the type you're copying to (you should see "T" icon next to the filled eyedropper.
If that's not working, you could try restoring your preferences:
I tried the same thing on a colored background for the frame and had the same result.
