    Default how to add color with eyedropper

    Hello,

    In FW mx 04 in order to add color to the swatch list, you need to use
    the eyedropper tool. click on the desired color and drag the eyedropper
    near the last color cube in the swatch panel.

    well, I have done that many time with FH and Flash but in this version
    It wont work. I get a white cube instead of any color I choose. the Web
    Safe option is NOT selected.

    is this a known problem?

    Use the Paint bucket tool in the Swatches panel.

    that's exactly what I am doing (I have been using FW since version 3)
    but the color doesn't "go in" the eyedropper and when I "dump" the color
    in the swatch list I get a white block.

    I'm not having a problem with it, as you can see in the film at the URL
    above. Which OS are you using? What do you have running in the
    background when you attempt to add swatches?
