The swatches panel's scrollbar becomes disabled when using the color picker.
My solution is to resize the swatches panel when using the color picker. It's not frustrating, but it's a problem that some users might not figure out.

Before resizing:


After resizing:


After resizing the swatches panel (while the color picker is open), the swatches panel's scrollbar becomes enabled again.

This was fixed but it looks like there's a subtle thing going on with the Windows side. Here's a workaround in the meantime:

While you have a modal dialog open, if you resize the panel just a bit (drag the bottom of the panel down just a tick) then the scrolling will start to work.

This should be solved by the CC 2015.1 update that was released today: https://blogs.adobe.com/photoshop/201...
