Toolbar color selection menu

I find that I cannot clock these items. Either, there is a long delay of a minute or so, or not response. I am referring to the color menus for text. Here’s the image where they show black and pink, I hope:

I find I need to control-click them.

It shouldn’t be a minute, more like a couple of seconds, but some buttons in Scrivener have three different ways you can use them. You can click and hold, right-click for instant access, or just a regular click to activate the button. In this case, if you click with some text selected it uses the current colour (pink) on the text.

Thanks for the replies. I didn’t know any of that. I’m having memory issues–my machine is, anyway. That’s what was going on.
