Why is it that on some versions of cs6 when i select the "set foreground color" (or background), the color dialog pops up with the hex number selected allowing me to quickly ctrl+c it. However, on other computers - with the exact same copy of photoshop (cloud based and fully updated) it does *not* auto select the hex number. I've looked through the settings to see if this is a feature that needs to be turned on/off but could not find it....
Any one have any idea on how i could turn this on for all my workstations?
In the case of the CS6 Mac edition, auto selection of the Hex field was implemented in the 13.1/13.02 Retina updates. Check Photoshop CS6 on the problem workstations to be sure they are updated.
On Windows versions of CS6,be sure to single-click on the foreground swatch. Double-clicking it removes the Hex selection.
That's about all I can think of, so if this doesn't help...I'll leave this to more experienced users, MVPs, and Staff.
I only single click on it. All my workstations are pc's with windows 7.
