    Custom Color Not Working

    nc2dc
      I am able to create the custom color, but when I apply it to an item in Fireworks, it sort of chooses a color close to the custom color, but it's not the color I wanted. I have also tried entering the HEX value that I retrieved via an RGB to HEX converter, but it does not take. It just reverts to the color that is close to the color I want. I mean, I can clearly see the difference in the custom colors panel, but when I apply it, I get the wrong color. Any idea why this is happening?

      thanks

          make sure you don't have "Snap to Web Safe" selected in your color
          picker slide out menu (top right black arrow).
