  4. Open up Roblox studio
  5. Insert ScreenGui
  6. Insert Frame
  7. Try to pick background color3

Has occurred for the last month. Part of the pick color on screen update.

I hate to necro this thread. but this is still an issue for me.

I’m on a 1080p laptop, and having scaling at 125% and the issue goes away when i set that back down to 100%

screencap at 125%:

screencap at 100%:

again. i really hate to necro this, but duplicate threads are bad, and no one else has brought this up from what I’ve seen. (as a bug report)
