Bonjour Éric
Merci for your answer. As you suggested, i just tried using the color  
palette in Mail and TextEdit ; it works well in these two app. ! I  
noticed yet that the color palette is different : in Rev the color  
palette has to buttons at the bottom : cancel (Annuler here) and OK ;  
when calling it in Mail or TextEdit, these two buttons are not there.

Seems as if it was not the same color palette ??

Seems it"s only with Rev, I keep freezing each second time I click on  
"Colors and Patterns" in the Inspector ; seems like an infinite loop  
(In fact, I unfreeze with "command maj point" but then I have to quit  
Rev and relaunch it to be able (once) to choose a color :-((

I am completely lost ; I don't know where to check !

Best regards from Grenoble
