Picking a Colour with the Dropper Tool
While working in the Drawing view, you can use the Dropper tool to pick a colour from your drawing without going to the Colour view.
NOTE: To learn more about the Dropper tool options, see Dropper Tool Properties.
How to use the Dropper tool
- Do one of the following:
- In the Tools toolbar, select the Dropper tool.
- From the top menu, select Tools > Dropper.
- Press Alt + D.
- In the Drawing view, click on the desired colour.
- If you're using another drawing tool such as the Paint tool, you can temporarily hold down the D key and click in your drawing before releasing the key to pick your colour. When you release the key, you will return to your previous tool. You may also want to select the zones painted with the colour currently selected in the Colour view. This can be useful for removing rough lines from a clean drawing.
