RSA 8.04 - Use Case Format / Fill / Custom color broken

In RSA 8.04, in a use case diagram, we are able to change colors of the use case 'bubble'. However, none of the custom colors work. Please enhance the product to allow the additional colors to be displayed. This is necessary for very large diagrams where more color is required. (Yes I have diagrams that big).

    I tested this in the 8.5 beta and it doesn't work and seems to also affect the appearance tab. The appearance custom color works until I try to do the right click steps above and then the appearance stops working.
