Colour Picker - Inverted Colour Bug

When using the colour picker, I experience a bug of the picker identifying and selecting the opposite colour. I've seen this bug in some forums but can't find a satisfactory resolution or work around.
Do you know of one?

RE: Colour Picker - Inverted Colour Bug

This is likely happening not because of anything in PowerPoint, but Because of your magnifier.

Try going to the settings app on your computer, and searching for your magnifier settings. Within these settings, you should see an option called 'Invert Colours'. If this is currently turned on, then turn it off.

Now go back to PowerPoint and try using the eyedropper again. You should now see that it will choose the correct colours.

PowerPoint tip:

Moving shapes where you want

when you move shapes using your cursor arrows they jump around, so by holding down the CTRL key and using the arrows the shape moves where you want it to.
