Updating color code for rectangle

Hi guys,

I have a rectangle shape and I’m simply trying to change its color to a different color that is not available in the color picker list.
I pasted the html color code with and without # into the color picker window but it just comes right back to the originally selected color.

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Thank you,
Magdalena

Hello @mhallem1218,

Sorry for the annoyance here - let’s work out where this is breaking down…

Looks like you’re using Mockups 3 for Desktop, correct? This really should be no more difficult than entering the 6-digit hex code then pressing ENTER. Can you make sure you’re completing the process by pressing the ENTER key? If it’s still not working, get back to me and we’ll get to the bottom of it.

Hi there,

I just tried again and this time it worked… Not sure why it wasn’t working before. I swear I was hitting enter after entering the code Hex.

Anyway…looks like it’s working fine now.

Thanks!
