Hello everyone I am having a specific issue with the latest update of photoshop. I am on windows 10 64bit with 16gb ram and evga geforce gtx 980 card.

My proble is with text.. if i select a text layer i can use the eyedropper tool to select a color from swatches other layer etc everywhere like normal. BUT if i select a part of text in a text layer like a few words in between to change only that color... when i use the eyedropper to select a swatch or anywhere else it dings and does not work. Has anyone had this happen or know of a fix?>

What I would do to resolve this is to make a separate text layer for the parts that need to be in different hue and place that  in between the remaining text by making two different layers of them (three in total) so that you could move them around in relation to each other.

Possibly someone with a better suggestion will chime in here...
