Object backgrounds not matching background colour?

December 5, 2008 | 2:19 pm

Hi,

I’ve given the background to my patch a colour (using the bgcolor object and hex code) and applied the same hex value to some objects, but all the objects appear slightly lighter than the background colour.

Am I missing something?

Also how do I get images in my patch? I tried using the pictctrl object but it forces you to have the image as a toggle, button or dial?

Thanks in advance.

I can’t seem to replicate this. Can you send an example?
