Ahh... I see. I didn't realise that context menu entry existed at all. Yes, if I use that context menu then the function works as expected. I thought this referred to the button I highlighted in my attached screenshot.

Well... I guess it kind of makes sense. The mouse hover help does say "Add current colour to palette as a global colour" which is technically correct, the current colour is being added, and the current colour does not necessarily correlate to the currently selected object...

I don't know how to feel about this. At least the hover help needs to be reworded so it's clear only the colour on the swatches panel will be added and that it's unrelated to the shape? Something like "Add active colour in this panel to palette as a global colour"? Or maybe add in front "(right click an object to add it's fill & stroke colour instead)"?

I'm not a native speaker so I'll let that up to you guys.

Thanks!

I also thought it wasn't working as expected, surely theres a better way of doing it - why can't we have a shortcut option to maybe hold down alt and click on the add global icon?

Thanks for that - I'll get this passed over to development to be looked into.
