    Alt + Click not working in Artrage 6 to quick sample color. What am I missing?

    Am I missing something? In all the older art rages, you hold alt and click to sample a color. This is essential for me. It's not working in Artrage 6 though.
    Do I have to set this up some where? Please help, thanks!

    Hello Polioliolio,
    Thatís very unusual Alt sampling still works for me, always has.
    I know itís an old standby when faced with the digital unexplained but have you tried a system restart? Dose this behaviour persist after that?

    Hm. Okay, a reset did work for general alt clicking. For some reason it wasn't doing it there. It also wasn't allowing me to transform objects in a group, but after reset it did. Hm.

    It still doesn't work for text though. Text, yes, I'm so used to art rage and so not used to anything else that it's easier for me to word process in this at the canvas size I want than in some other thing.
    Anyway, if you type text, you highlight it, then you want to alt click to change the color of the text easily, it doesn't allow it, like it does in Artrage 4.

    Thanks for your answer by the way.

    The colour of highlighted text can be changed using the Colour Picker panel or Samples panel.
    Alt colour sampling only works to change highlighted text when sampling from a reference image thatís been loaded into AR. Sampling from paint on the canvas or a Scrap to change text colour wonít work.
    This has always been the case for me in past versions of AR and in AR6 on my Mac.

    I just tested this. Try this:

    Open ArtRage 4. Type out a sample text. Highlight it. Now if you Hold Alt + Click anywhere on the color sample wheel, the text changes to that color.
    In ArtRage6, if you try the same thing, the text will not change color.

    When using the Colour Picker in AR4 or AR6 you donít need to hold down the alt key, just Left Click on the area of colour you want and it should be applied to the selected text.
    Can you change text colour not holding down the alt key
    Hereís a quick video of me changing text colour in AR4.5 & AR6. At no time is the alt key used, just Left Clicks on the Colour Picker: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k7k4o2g2r9...olour.mp4?dl=0
