Hi Jim,

Thanks for your reply. This has nothing to do with Photoshop. The  
problem appears to be as follows.

I create an object with background colour 112,112,112 in Rev, save the  
stack and copy it from my Mac Intel to my Mac PPC.

On the PPC I use the answer colour command in the message box:

   answer color; put it

The colour picker appear, I click on the magnifying glass and pick a  
colour on the screen (the same 112,112,112). In the colour picker, the  
colour is clearly displayed as 112,112,112. I click OK and 93,93,93 in  
the message box!

Before I file a bug report, I'd like to know if there is an  
explanation for this. Anyone...?

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
