You should just be able to go into your workspace and in your css part as long as you have a line that actually is set to a color such as:

h1 { color: #000; }

Then you should be able to hover over the hex part - #000.

I tried hovering the mouse over the hex part and I can't get the color preview to show up. I tried in Firefox and Microsoft edge to no avail :(

Its working. Thanks anil rahman.
