Photoshop: Gradient adjustment bug with inbetween color points (swatches)

In the past Photoshop's behaviour in the gradient-adjustment-dialogue on setting inbetween points for gradients picked the color where you clicked into the gradient and created the swatch point with exactly this clicked/picked color. This was expected and very usefull because I could easily fine tune the gradient by moving this color left or right even beyond other color points or change this inbetween-color to a completely different color. Now this behaviour has changed, it's now the foreground color that is set automatically for the inbetween-point and this doesn't makes any sense to me, it's not wysiwyg. And also makes finetuning gradients a pita as I cannot pick inbetween values of gradients in the adjustment dialogue. Please fix this.

Try holding the Option/Alt key when clicking to add your in-between swatch.

Halleluja, thanks a lot. I should have thought about that too, but I didn't, sometimes  you don't see the tree inside the forest. Although I think it should be vice versa. At least it's not gone. Anyway, thanks!
