Can the Selected Color and Hue Selector be moved to the top of the color dialog window? See image below. Most people are right handed (sorry lefties!) and your hand covers the selected color. Try it and you will see what I mean.

Or, are you using the OS color dialog window for each version of AR and I understand that cannot be changed?
