[FIXED][BUG] Pasting color picker color values

Balsamiq Edit: This has been implemented in version 3.4.5

In the past I was able to copy an object’s background color, then paste that color into the background color picker input of another object in order to duplicate the color between objects. Now when I paste (Ctrl+V) the color value, the color is automatically being changed to black – the pasted value is ignored.

**Note: This only occurs when pasting the color name along with the hex value. Pasting the hex value works correctly.

Also found this, but not shown in the example: Using Ctrl+V pastes the entire value. Right-clicking and selecting paste only copies part of the value. In this case “red4 (cc0000)” was pasted as “red4 (cc”

I tested this in 3.4.2 as well as the .310 pre-release version. Both versions exhibit the same behavior.


Well, that’s a fun one.

Thanks for the heads up, my friend. We will look at it and see what happened! :slight_smile:
