Color picker doesn't work

I have a problem using the color picker/dropper in Animate Pro 3, on Mac, Mountain Lion:

  1. I imported a bitmap (and converted it to vector during import)
  2. I made a new color pot
  3. I double-clicked the new color pot
  4. I clicked the color picker
  5. With the color picker selected, I clicked on a RED color in my imported drawing.

But instead of changing the new color pot into RED, the default top color pot (BLACK) was now automatically selected, as was the color BLACK.

As I understand it, it should also be possible to use the color picker outside of Animate, but as soon as I move the cursor away from Animate, the picker-symbol changes into an ordinary mouse pointer (arrow).

Could you please tell me if this is a bug, or if I’m doing something wrong?

P.S. The color picker works as expected in the color wheel, i.e. the color pot in question is updated in real time.

Did you use the colour-picker from the colour-wheel-window ?

No, I DIDN’T! :slight_smile:

Thank you so much! What a relief - I copied RGB values from Photoshop for about 100 swatches yesterday, to this is a time saver.

I can’t get it to work on other applications though, but that’s not really a problem.
