I have just installed Adobe Elements 2022 and the backgound/foreground colors are not displayed in the toolbar.  I have tried every way I can think of but cannot solve this problem. Installation is on Win10. Has this feature been eliminated on the 2022 version?

#response_container_BBPPID{font-family: initial; font-size:initial; color: initial;} I did position the taskbar to the extreme right of the screen. I can partially see the foreground/background colours. There is clearly a fault with the software. Thanks for your advice. Sent via BlackBerry Hub+ Inbox for Android By @johns72863380
What's the vertical resolution of your display? The system requirements are 800 pixels. In the other thread, that was the real source of the problem. If so...

Hi @johns72863380, You may find your answer in this discussion.

Why is the colour box not in the toolbar anymore.

Thanks for your reply. I solved the problem by hiding the taskbar. You pointed the writer to appropriate solutions.

Hi @johns72863380, If hiding the taskbar works to give you more vertical space and solved your problem, why not position the taskbar on the left or right side? That way you have more vertical space and you still have the taskbar.

What's the vertical resolution of your display? The system requirements are 800 pixels. In the other thread, that was the real source of the problem. If so, not a bug but a non supported display. If you are using a laptop with a narrow display under 800 pixels, you may be able to live with the given workarounds; however, it's often possible to work with a bigger external display for home work, for instance an old unused TV set with 1920 x 1080 px display and HDMI connection.

I had this same issue, just purchased PSE and the colors were not showing.  It's kind of rediculous that a software company like Adobe cannot allow us to scale a toolbar, or at least remove the blank space in it so the icons can fit correctly.  It's not that complicated of a UI that it could not be displayed in less than 800 pixels vertically.

If these blank gaps were not there, it would fit just fine:

Seems like an issue that could be patched, especially seeing as they charge $100 for this, but I'm not holding my breath.

I agree this is very frustrating. There is blank space that could be removed, or put in a bar to scroll down to where the colors are visible. I hope they fix this bug.

 

I moved the task bar... which has a bar to scroll.
