Hex field in all color palettes... any thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Greetings Affinity,

 

I was wondering if it would be helpful to have a HEX field available in all color profile palettes/windows. Lately, I've been working in HSL, as I find it easier to target a particular color, and it would be nice to have the HEX code running alongside the sliders (like RGB Hex). Also, I've been using AD to comp web designs and I'm constantly bouncing between RGB Hex and HSL to input HEX colors from a pre-existing brand style guide.

 

Just a thought. :-)

 

Cheers!

Yeah, HEX falls a little short when it comes to ease of use. I guess that’s a legacy from AD primarily trying to follow Adobe Illustrator and only just recently making a slight turn towards web/UI design where HEX colors are much more prevalent.

+1 and agree with your suggestion.  In Corel's PaintShop it is so difficult to paste a value into the box (other letters appear and you must now delete them and try again)

Ideally, I should be able to send you hex values for a color I want and you can just copy and paste them in

This would be perfect. Just like we have it already for export settings in the Export Persona.

What do you mean PS boxes?

Thanks

I think I must have misread the post by Rick G from last October. I was referring to the hex box that appears in Photoshop's color picker.
