Chapter 17. Working with Color in Illustrator > Identifying and Choosing Color

Identifying and Choosing Color

Various tools, palettes, menu commands, and features manage and display color in Illustrator.

Tools Palette Color Swatches

At the bottom of the Tools palette are swatches indicating fill and stroke colors active in the currently selected object or appearance attribute. If no object is selected, the displayed stroke color and fill color, gradient, or pattern applies to newly created objects. The exception is new type, which always starts out with a 100% pure black fill and no stroke.
