Shortcuts to Success: Use That Color Again
SPD-U SHORTCUT OF THE WEEK
Apply the Last-Used Swatch
If you want to apply the same color swatch to multiple objects, select the object and type comma. The last color you used will be applied to either the fill or the stroke, depending on which one you've activated.
One important requirement: this only works with swatches, not colors applied with the Color Panel. In fact, if you have the Color Panel open, close it, or the shortcut won't work. And, don't try it with selected type, unless you want replace those words with a comma.
BTW, check out our shortcut from a few weeks ago, to learn how to swap an object's stroke and fill.
