    Inprecise colour picker

    katwek
      I have a spanish version of Fireworks 8 and if I'm not mistaken there's a bug which prevents the colour picker to copy colours! As you might imagine this is hugely disturbing, as i can't do any precise work at the moment: for example, picking a colour I would like to repeat from an image, the output is completely different tot the original. This has never happened to me in any previous Fireworks versions... Is it a bug, or is it me? I tried to find a solution in the general preferences panel, but no luck here. Help!

          Open the menu of one of the swatches palettes and uncheck Snap to Websafe.

            Also, with the color picker selected, make sure the Property inspector shows the sample setting at 1 pixel and not 3X3 or 5X5
