Storyboard editor color selector problems

I'm running Xamarin Studio 6.0.1 on OS X El Captian 10.11.5

When editing a .storyboard file (such as the one created by any of the default templates) the color selector won't accept keyboard input, so I can't type in hex values for instance.

Also, the dialog has a maximize button (or whatever it's called in OS X), which when pressed makes the dialog too large and cannot be undone as shown in the attached screenshot.

Anyone get the same problem or know how to un-maximize the dialog?

    This is an old thread and that is an old version of a now unsupported IDE, Xamarin Studio. I am going to close this thread. If you are experiencing this issue with the latest stable version of Visual Studio for Mac, then please start a new thread. thanks!
