    HEX colour changes automatically

    matsuka

      I changed some text to HEX: #808285 but it automatically changes to HEX: #7F8185.

       

      You can see they are slightly different colours:

      Why does Fireworks do this? I am using version 10.

       

      Also, Adobe doesn't have newsgroup access anymore?

       

      Thank you for your help!

          I can't get FW to do that. Can you give specific steps please. You select text, change he color via property inspector, click on color block again and the color changes?

            Yeah, that's exactly what I was doing. As soon as I hit Enter after choosing the colour in the properties inspector it would change.

             

            This is a really weird issue. I kind of figured it out but it must be a bug in Fireworks.

             

            If I paste the HEX # from the clipboard, that's when I have a problem. If I manually type it in it saves the colour as it should. Also using the colour picker works fine.

             

            UPDATE: I just tried again, the bug seems to have fixed itself. As I said this is a really weird issue!

             

            Thanks for your help anyway.

              I pasted it as well. Sometimes strange things happen and go away and sneak up again LOL. I love this software but the gremlins appear now and then :-)
