The eyedropper suddenly stopped working correctly. See attached images to show which eyedropper options are selected and what the result is. The color should be a flat blue and instead a gradient effect is being applied. This is happening repeatedly throughout many charts within this document. I'm in InDesign CC and it's up to date. I just reset all of my preferences manually as the shortcut keys have never worked for me and my pages panel stopped working.
I wanted to update and say that I drew a box in Indesign today in a different file and it's also misbehaving. I'm trying to copy a solid color orange from a circle to a rectangle. It's copying the orange but ADDING 65% transparency. Unlike before where I was getting an effect applied. I turned OFF every eyedropper option except "Color and Tint" under "Fill Settings" and it's still applying the opacity.
