I'm trying to figure out how can I use the eyedropper tool in illustrator like you would in Photoshop?
When I try to sample colors outside of the gradient panel/color pallet panel, the tool is not as simple as it is in Photoshop.
I need to add the colors to the swatches panel, making sure the panel is un-docked so you can add the colors freely, the process is very annoying and time consuming, not like with Photoshop. You can sample colors at any time.
I was hoping there was a solution, maybe a setting I need to check for this or something I'm doing wrong.
