The Max 5 Docs says:
"Copying a color to the Color Palette
* Control-click anywhere outside the window. The color you clicked on will be copied into the color editor. "
I can only assume that the color palette window has to be open for this, but I cannot seem to get it to work. Control-clicking outside a window just closes the palette window. Any Ideas why? I'm probably missing something really obvious.... again.
This is on windows XP
