The "s" in the screenshot below was a path filled with black. I had the lineart done by and artist and then I go in and fill the color, so I'm 99.9% this description is correct. I filled it using livepaint. It's now a livepaint object... I need to go in and correct my blacks (to rich black, this is a CMYK doc -- I have another thread about that, LOL). Now, when I select the path that contains the black, if I try to change it's fill to the proper black, it fills the entire object with that color. I just need to change the area within the yellow path you see below and NOT the light blue area... It seems that once it converted to livepaint, I lost the ability to change the fill within the yellow path (which is just the outline of a stroke of black, for lack of a better description. It looks like a stroke, but it's a fill or WAS a fill before it became a livepaint object. Anyone know how I can change just the black part? Thanks.
Fill it with the live paint bucket selecting the rich black swatch first.
If it is pat of a live paint group that is what the paint bucket is for otherwise with the selection tool, the black arrow double click on it to enter isolation mode and now fill it or select as you have and from the layers panel drop down select isolation mode and now fill it.
Or select it and only it and go to Edit>Edit Colors>Recolor Art and select the new color area and add a new color and select the rich black swatch.
With the LivePaint Bucket, don't click the light blue region of the S; zoom in and click only the black region. The black "outline" is not an outline; it's not "part of the S path"; it's a separate filled path.
