Color dialog: Black/White/Gray as Basic Colors; hex input

Ingo Rau shared this idea 1 week ago
Completed

Wouldn't it be sensible (and easy) to add Black, White and several Grays (e.g. 20%/40%/50%/60%/80%) to the list of basic colors in the color selection dialog? Now it's always a hassle using the advanced selection (and almost impossible to get identical gray values).

Speaking of identical values: It would also be very helpful to have ahex input field (including alpha value) on the Advanced tab. Right now, you cannot really reproduce manually selected colors.

Good day Ingo,

this is something I wanted to do quite a long time ago. Even this is probably not too often usable feature, I believe it find it's usage ... at least I hope.

In next version:

- option in first tab will be limited to 22 colors that were analyzed as "most contrast and easily visible even to people with color visibility problems ( source of information in really interesting PDF file here ).

- added new third tab with option to set color by HEX/RGB or HSV value

Enjoy it.

Great, thx! Always nice to have an "idea" you were also thinking about ;)

Also, interesting stuff about colors. Didn't read through the whole doc, but sounds like some people really thought about this stuff...
