APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft PowerPoint 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q172360

SYMPTOMS

In the PowerPoint 97, the Standard tab in the Colors dialog box has a hexagonal color picker. Instead of displaying a full spectrum of colors, this color picker may display only shades of blue and green.

NOTE: When you click one of the colors in the color picker, the sample swatch in the lower right corner of this dialog box displays the correct color.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if you use the ATI Graphics Turbo PCI (mach64 GX) video display driver that ships with Windows 95 OEM Service Release 2, and your Color Palette is set to True Color (32-bit).

NOTE: To locate this option, right-click the Windows 95 desktop, and then click the Settings tab in the Display Properties dialog box.

RESOLUTION

Change the Color palette to a setting other than True Color (32-bit). This problem does not occur with True Color (16-bit) or True Color (24-bit) color settings.
