Can't change keyword colors?

Hey there,

So I’m well into a draft here (Scrivener 3.2.1 on Big Sur 11.0.1) and have run into a strange issue with keyword colors. I was assigning them very happily until yesterday evening, when all of a sudden, it just stopped working. All my prior keyboard colors work perfectly, but when I change the hex value of a given keyword, although the new color shows up in the dialogue box, it doesn’t change the color associated with the keyword.

Here is a short video showing the issue I’m having:

Thanks for any insight!


Apple’s colour system works in strange and wondrous ways, and I think this is just another aspect of that. After changing the Hex value and pressing Return, click back into the keyword panel–that should cause it to update with the new colour. It won’t update automatically without that, and if you close the Color Picker without doing that, the keywords won’t receive the changed colour.
