I upgraded to OS Lion yesterday and this morning have noticed that the color picker in the Properties pane at the bottom of the screen no longer works. I will only change colour if I select one from the swatch but not from an element on the page. I can only cahnge to another colour by manually entering the Hex code. This is incredibly time-consuming, for all sorts of tasks like changing font colors, color-swap, fill color etc etc.!
Don't know if the OS upgrade has anything to do with it but it's the only thing that changed on my computer since yesterday.
Does anybody have any ideas how I can get around this or if there is aosme other setting I can change to get it to work again?? Thanks!
That sounds awful. I did a quick search for this, and apparently Color Picker problems in FW CS4 on Lion are a "known issue". This page has a couple of official Adobe links related to Creative Suite/Lion compatibility:
Also, I found this forum posting. Have you tried using the Color Palette panel instead? Or the Color Mixer?
Thanks for your suggestions. Yes, it's possible to pick a colour through the left toolbar side panel but that still adds a couple of extra clicks to the design process which is tedious at best! I am now doing a roll back to Snow Leopard because I want to install CS 5.5 and apparently there are many more issues with Lion than just the color picker and I don't want to take any chances.!

Very wise move because Adobe products with Mac Lion are a joke.
I cannot believe I have spend thousands of pounds on Adobe and this is how they treat us. Shocking. It's been over a year now and they still can't even be bothered to tell us whether they are going to fix their software or not.
