WLW not saving custom colors


  • I'm running WLW build # 14.0.8089.726 (en) and I have noticed that anytime I define a custom color on the color palette to apply styling to selected text, that the color isn't saved and I have to re-enter the hex values for the custom color every time I want to use it.

    I don't see how I'm doing anything wrong, as other windows apps do save their custom colors OK... only WLW seems to be affected.

    Any ideas?

  • I can't confirm this... I'd like to test it.
    Are you saying when the post is saved, posted or saved local as a draft?

    Can you provide instructions on how to reproduce the problem?

  • It does not matter what software program you use, all programs using Windows Color Palette will not save any custom colors that you create. I am using Cabnetware and I have the same issue. You also have the problem with Paint. Even if you save a project that used custom colors, when you open the saved project your custom colors are gone!
    The only one I got to stick is: Internet Explorer | Tools | Internet Options | General | Appearance | Colors
