Color

Hi Eric

The Cancel and OK buttons on the Color picker pane seem to have gone? Where you set custom colors under the "Other" tab.

Bonjour George,

Yes, it is a system change on macOS.

Cordialement.

But without the OK button you can't register a custom colour? Or at least i haven't found out how to do it!

Choose a colour and drag the square at the bottom-left on the list of small square at the right-bottom.

OK - I tried that and it causes RealCADD to crash and quit immediately. Tried several times with a completely new plan, with the same result.

With RealCADD 5.02 on Catalina I don't have problem except if I don't close the colour picker before quitting RealCADD.

Hi Eric

This is what happens for me (on Big Sur):

Instant crash!

Doesn't matter if it is fill or stroke – or which color picker I choose.

George,

I have tried on Big Sur and I don't have problem :

Can you try the color picker on another app like Pages for example?
And send me the crash report?

Thanks

Hi Eric

OK – I tried the color picker on Pages and it was fine. Then I tried it on RealCADD and it was also fine!!

I binned all the colors and tried it again on RealCADD – and it was still fine.

I binned all the colors again and did a re-start. Without using the color picker on any other program, I opened RealCADD and tried the color picker. It crashed.

So – it would seem that it only produces a crash if it hasn't been "initialized" in some way by another program.

I'll email the Crash Report.

If you ask me (which nobody is of course!), I think Apple have made a total fuck-up of the color picker – not intuitive at all!! Took me forever to work out how to use it.

Cheers -- George

George,

I can't crash it when the color picker is called first by RealCADD.

I will ask on the Xojo forum.

Thanks.
