      Summary

      Custom Color creation causes FMP-Advanced (but not FMP) to lockup on the second use in a session.

      Description of the issue

      Making more than one trip to the "Other Color" option in the color picker palette causes the program interface to lock up, requiring a force quit.  It is not necessary to actually create a new color, just the act of going beyond the standard palette (twice) is sufficient.  There are two ways to get to the color palette (Text Color Format and Layout>Status Area>Fill) and both cause the problem.  Text Color Format can trigger the crash in either Browse or Layout Mode. This is an issue with FMP Advanced v10.1 thru 10.3.  It does not occur with FMP v10.1 thru 10.3 when run on the same machine. It does not occur with FMP 9 or FMP Advanced 9. The environment is iMac Core 2 Duo, OS 10.5.7. Other Apple programs that rely on the color picker work fine. I have tried trashing preferences in ~Library/Colors. Setting FMP Advanced preferences for any of the three palettes (88/256/Web) also has no effect. Custom color changes made in FMP are available in FMP Advanced without a problem, so this is the workaround: create palettes there, use in Advanced. Would someone be kind enough to try this on a FMP Advanced Mac Setup test database to confirm? Thanks
