After loading a large group of vector (*.ai) files, I tried individually going through to change each one's color (they're basic, monochrome vectors).
After pasting the hex value into the object's fill-color, the object will change color - but the document name will not show a star, indicating it hasn't been saved. Furthermore I can't save. Furthermore, I can exit the document, and not only will it not ask for me to save it, but I lose my changes.
I found that I can move the object, and undo, and then it'll let me save. But this is ridiculous, especially when the graphics are thin.
Question: Is there another way I can change the color in one action such that it will allow me to save?
p.s. Someone plz report this bug. (Adobe Illustrator 16.0.3, 64-bit, Windows)
- Opened up 13 files each with one compound path (CMYK).
- Drag-select with the "Selection Tool" to easily select any shape.
- Hold shift and click the fill-color in the main toolbar at the top (by default)
- If it's not in RGB color, click on the little drop-down in the top-right corner, and select RGB.
- Select and paste into the text-box labeled "#" (Hex/Web color value)
- Press enter / click out of box. The color will apply.
At this point, I cannot save.
