    From the patch notes:
    RIFT STORE AND SERVICES
    * Dyes can now be previewed in the Store! Go to the dye category and click on dye to preview the color on your character preview.
    - Additionally, you can also control-click dyes that are in your inventory to preview them.
    - You can also click on Dye recipes to see a preview of the dye.

    Feh, you can't preview dyes on the auctioneer. I am not nearly so happy any more...

    It's all broke, I can't preview any dye .. ones I made or the ones I could make

    Well preview works only out of the Dye vendor

    Shift click one does the primary color ... shift click again to dye the secondary part.

    You must first open the store and click on one of the categories (so you see your character on the right), then you can Ctrl+Click your dyes from your inventory.

    Cool, thanks

    Maybe add that to a MoTD or something or patch note addendum.

    Worthless for me, I have all dye recipes. None of the clicking works for me to preview. As I have all recipes there are none left in the store to preview..

    Preview is still possible for crafting. With the Rift Store open previewing your character, open your Crafting Window to your dyes. Select the dye you want to preview, then control click on the Dye icon. This will apply the dye to preview in the Rift Store.

    We do want to make the Character Sheet preview better, like the Rift Store, in a future patch.

    Kinda surprised that they don't both work the same way. Happy to have the feature (especially after dumping 300p on AH dyes I ended up not liking this past weekend), but I almost wish you guys had waited until the character sheet preview worked as well. A lot of people are going to try this and assume it's broken/doesn't work, which makes Trion look bad.

    Super cool.

    On dye/costume previews: City of Heroes had an amazing costume editor which let you have different colors on different pieces of gear, and so on. I dunno who all at Trion played it, but I know Zorba did. The reason I bring this up is that often, if I have several pieces of gear, I'll have different pieces react to dyes differently enough that I want to use two different dyes to get similar colors. And that leads to the observation:

    What would be *best* would be to have a preview that has per-slot dye options. And you might get better results at that point from having some kind of pop-up or something that lets people select from All The Dyes even if they don't have a clickable instance of a given dye, so they know what they are looking for. Or alternatively, have a mechanism for the store to list items you can't buy from it, with some kind of indicator of "this is available from crafters" or whatever.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    A drop-down list per equipment/wardrobe slot that also works on the character sheet would certainly have been more flexible and desirable to players. Seebs is right, what if you want to work in other dyes on an outfit? Or you want to see what dye looks like on one piece only? I know I don't always limit my outfits to two colors and often wish to dye only one piece. And who wants to have to open the store everytime they want to preview a dye?
