@davidakennedy is this a core issue or an issue with Twenty Seventeen? It seems related to the issue (#38993) we were troubleshooting on Saturday.

It turns out this is the expected behavior :)

The header text color is independent of the color hue option. The hue slider is working, but the changes can be quite subtle depending on the part of the page you're looking at. However, in the video you can see that the current menu item in the top menu changes color visibly, along with the scroll arrow there. It's a bit more obvious when there isn't a header image, or when you're looking at things like links, post meta, or the footer (the social menu icons change quite a bit). It's actually tweaking the hue of the dark colors as well, but it's very hard to see the difference visually there at first. It looks like the header text color is always matching that option, as it should, but if not please reopen.

If we get more reports of confusion on this in the forums, for example, we could consider adding a description to the color scheme control to clarify how the custom hue works.
