    I think it must be shift-double click.

      Shift-Double Click seems to work, though.

    It’s Shift and double click.

    If you are going to post something how about posting a complete thought? Shfit-click and then what? Is one supposed to then click on the point we want to be the black or white point? Nope, that doesn’t seem to do anything. Ah, shfit doubleclick. That’s it.
    Please fix your post!

    Following this blogger’s advice will be super frustrating for anyone who hasn’t yet seen Alfred Myers’ comment. The article should in fact say “shift-double-click.”

    It appears that shift-double click works on more than just white and black sliders.
