When the "Activate Paint Tool When Changing Color" preference is turned on the eyedropper tool still won't change to the paint tool after a color has been selected. Also, the I can't double tap the apple pencil to activate the eraser when the eyedropper tool is selected.

How do you select the color (long press gesture, or option-tap, or finger action, or manually activate Eyedropper, ...)?

ps. Screenshots with Preferences > Gestures and Preferences > Apple Pencil can be very helpful.

I usually manually activate the eyedropper tool.

Everything looks fine.
"Activate Paint Tool When Changing Color" - this option doesn't change tool from Eyedropper to Paint when Eyedropper was manually activated.
It will activate Paint when you pick a color from Colors panel or toolbar, and active tool doesn't use a Color (for example Smudge, Eraser, Select etc). Eyedropper is a kind of tool that has "Color" property, so "Activate Paint Tool When Changing Color" doesn't work here.
