InDesign, the amazing eyedropper tool

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

The eye dropper tool in InDesign is not your Father’s (or Mother’s) digital eyedropper. Back in the days of Photoshop 2.5 and one undo (yes… 1) the eyedropper was a pretty simple tool, it sampled color… period. These days the eyedropper does SO much more. Double click on the tool to see the attributes it will collect. To see the power of this sample some formatted text in your document and the cursor will change as if it filled up, now use that to highlight some unformatted text…  ta-daa! Really handy when replacing copy in a file with no style sheets. Video tutorial to follow. This tool is one of the most handy items in the digital toolbox when working on larger documents or even when copying styles from another file.  Enjoy!
