Hi folks,

I am running AE 2023 (23.0.0) on an M1 Macstudio Ultra, so native Silicon AE build. Since the last update (or thereabouts) of the 2022 version I noticed some weird text(panel) issues. First I wasn't able to select/highlight my entire textline, it would always skip the last letter, now with moving on to 2023 that seems fixed. However another issue popped up: Whenever I try to, let's say, sample a color from a background to apply to a text, it just won't do it. I notice the cursor glitch back and forth to the eyedropper icon and arrow.

When I click in the UI, it will sample and apply that color, but not from anywhere on the canvas or composition area. I have called a few collegues, one has the same machine as me and he reported the same issue, another running Windows and the same ver. of AE has no problems.

Is this a Silicon bug? Or might there be something else?

In addition to this: I am somewhat able to sample colors and apply it to text, from the composition by pressing enter while having the colorpicker selected (takes several tries tho and 9/10 i have to reselect te colorpicker) instead of just clicking the mousebutton. Called another collegue today, who's running AE 23.0.0 on Win11, and he has the same issue, so it doesn't seem to be a Mac Silicon only problem.

Any feedback, suggestion or help for that matter will be very much appreciated.
