I do not see a preview of the color when I hover over the color code in workspaces, like he does in the video.

Is there a way to fix this? Do I have to select that setting somewhere?

Hi, I think my code is correct because it shows up in Preview just fine. What it does not do is show me what the color will look like, in a little box when I hover over it, like it does in the video. I have to save and reload my Preview webpage in order to see the color.

My code looks like this

header{ background: #6ab47b; border-color: #599a68; }

I have the same problem and haven't been able to find anything for it yet.

I also have the same problem. Hovering over the color doesn't preview the color, but the code appears to be working correctly in the website preview...

When I switched to Google Chrome as the browser the preview color showed when hovering over color code.
