Chapter 3. Modifying Simple Graphics > Applying Attributes of One Graphic Eleme...

Applying Attributes of One Graphic Element to Another

To save time, you can copy the fill and stroke attributes of one element and apply them to another element.

To copy fills between graphic elements:

1.
In the Toolbox, select the eyedropper tool, or press I.

2.
Move the pointer over the Stage.

The pointer changes to an eyedropper.

3.
Position the eyedropper over the fill you want to copy (either a solid color or gradient).

4.
Click the fill (Figure 3.120).

Figure 3.120. Click a fill with the eyedropper tool to copy that fill. The paint bucket tool appears; it’s loaded with the copied fill. Now click another graphic element to apply the fill.


Flash switches to the paint-bucket tool automatically. The color or gradient you picked up appears in the fill-color box in the Toolbox and Property Inspector and in the gradient-preview window of the Color Mixer panel. (Clicking the eyedropper tool on a fill activates the paint bucket’s locked gradient mode.)

5.
Use the paint-bucket tool to apply the copied fill to a different graphic element (see “Modifying Fill Colors” earlier in this chapter).
