How do I activate eyedropper tool?

April 28 2011 | 2 comments

I can't remember how to activate this tool, and the Help topics tell me how to use it.


Mapping Center Answer:

Go to Customize > Customize Mode. Click the Commands tab and either search for 'Eye Dropper' or go to the Page Layout Categories.  Then you can drag the Eye Dropper from the Commands list and attach it to a toolbar.

Yes! Thank you.
This opens up so many great tools. I love drag and drop.
Perhaps the ArcGIS desktop help page will add a "how to activate/acquire tool/process before actually using" link to its search menu items? That would be HELPful.
Thanks again.

Good idea! You should consider posting it on the ArcGS Ideas page (or vote to support this idea if someone has already psoted it). Here is the link to that page:
