Object Eyedropper & Fill Transparency

Recommended Posts

Am I doing something wrong or does the Object Eyedropper not copy/transfer the Fill transparencies for closed polylines?

It's working okay for me, so you may not be doing something correctly. After you eyedropper something and it turns into a spray paint can, click on the Select Properties to Load icon on the Edit toolbar and make sure that the correct items are checked.

PLan file attached with 2 rectangles.

The left one is filled 90% and needs 90% solid fill on the right one.

Oh wow, I guess I forgot the fill eyedropper!

Thanks, Michael.

Wonder why the fill properties are not added to the Object eyedropper?

While the Fill Style Eyedropper is the 'right' tool for this, the object eyedropper should do the same unless those properties are deselected. 

The object eyedropper works for me, but not in Alan's plan. I'll dig a bit more to see if I can figure out why not.

The object eyedropper will correctly transfer the fill and the fill transparency, unless the fill of the target polyline is set to "use layer color".

This seems like a bug and should be reported.

The reason it works for me is that I never have a fill set to "use layer color".

And that incorrect function only affects a 'new' polyline. It works on a polyline that has already been 'tampered' with.

But the Object Eyedropper does not offer the Fill as an Option.

I did not change any properties of the rectangle on the right. Is there a Preference for polylines?

Yes it does.

Sorry, I miss spoke. I meant to say "Fill Transparency"

 

It does fill the new rectangle but with no transparency.

Try it using an initial fill color / pattern that is NOT the 'layer color'. And like I mentioned, if this isn't a bug, it certainly isn't a fully functioning tool for this case (despite the fact that there is a tool specifically for Fills).

OK I see now. I would need to choose "Custom Color" for it to work.

 

I'll report your findings.

 

Thanks
