Here's what I'd like to be able to do.
You have a rectangle with no fill but inside this rectangle you have two others. The key is that the outer rectangle is in front of all others. If you grab the regular eyedropper tool that's on the main toolbar you can "pluck" the color from any shape but you cannot fill any shape that's within the outer "front" rectangle. Would be nice if I could grab the one I want to change and either have an option to "fill from other shape" whereby invoking the arrow to let me choose the other shape OR hit a macro shortcut to invoke the other eyedropper tool in the image above.
I know it's not what you're asking for - but what about the right-click-then-drag-and-drop-using-Shift way of copying a fill from one shape to another?
Eyedropper to fill fails to "dig" to shape
I don't do that often enough to have the use of Shift for that as "muscle memory". I am more likely to do the right-click-then-drag-and-drop thing, and then use the menu that pops up to choose what I want to do.
select object you want fill then CTRL+SHIFT+E and select color
Mek said:select object you want fill then CTRL+SHIFT+E and select color
That's a good one. Hywel shared that in the thread that I linked to earlier.
That Command is called "Sample mesh fill color" in the workspace Customization. In the default workspace, they have Ctrl+Shift+E assigned as the keyboard shortcut, but the Command is not present on any CommandBars or menus.
I didn't check lindek thread as "everybody knows this shortcut"
I wasn't criticizing your content; just noting that it was part of the previous discussion.
It was good of you to post it here - because it is not the case that "everybody knows that".
