As a workaround, manually assign the desired colors. For example:

1. Open the Edit Color dialog
2. Click Reset
3. Manually change the color for at least one mark. For example, make the top mark green.
4. Click Apply
5. Manually change the color for that one mark to the color that would have been assigned by the Reset button. For example, change the top mark back to blue.
5. Click Apply or OK
