How to custom color the stroke in Adobe Illustrator?

I am wanting the stroke of the text I’m creating to match the fill color of the text, to give it a ‘bolder’ look in Adobe Illustrator.
I cannot seem to figure out how to eyedrop the custom color for the stroke, they way I have for the fill.


  1. Select the text using selection tool (v).
  2. Double click the fill colour on left side tools panel.A popup will open.
  3. Copy the colour code displayed after ‘#’.
  4. Double click the stoke colour on left side tool panel (next to fill
    colour, looks life a frame).
  5. Paste the copied colour code next to ‘#’.Click ‘OK’.
