Fill and Stroke indicators in Illustrator
Posted by: Mr Downtown

When I first began working extensively with Illustrator CS6 last year, there was someplace (I think in the bottom of the Appearance palette) that I saw little side-by-side squares representing the fill and stroke of a selected object. One or the other was highlighted, telling me what would get changed if I clicked in the Swatches palette. X allowed me to easily toggle between the two.

Sometime last fall those squares disappeared, and I can't figure out where they went. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to look?

Might you have inadvertently changed your "Workspace" setting?

Those are in your Tools palette...at the bottom. I guess you could get rid of them if you created a custom toolbar. But I've never done that. And all the built in workspace presets use the default toolbar.

You can also find this in the Color palette.

If you have been accustomed to finding the stroke/fill boxes in the Color palette and they have gone missing, click "Show Options" from the teeny tiny little drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the palette to bring them back.

Of course, they should always be at the bottom of the toolbar as well—at least, I've never seen them missing from there. You could try re-setting your workspace, or choosing a different one.

Good luck! smile smiley
