Can I copy only the color from another object using the eyedropper without copying other formatting?

Shift + Click to select a color. Option + Click (Mac) / Alt + Click (Windows) to fill a shape with the selected color:

  • I meant case with one selected object. So you can get color from another object with eyedropper and holded Shift button. Your way is good too, but slower.
