Colorpicker strange behavior when used on a color panel

Recommended Posts

As the thread title implies, the colorpicker behaves strange when trying to pick up a color near it's invokation from a fill color panel. It mostly refuses there then to pick up a color under the loupe, see here ...

BTW, AFAI have seen this odd behavior is equally among all tools of the Affinity line!

I assume the loupe is not made for use on color-wheels and - selectors. Instead in a wheel you may move the two white circles to select a color. Or simply click.

Well a moving loupe should be able to pick a color from everywhere on the screen, also from a beneath color wheel panel. Other tools loupe can do that too, it's just reading the underlayed pixel information. - But if you look carefully you can see that it only can partly do so in the above shown screen capture and fails there for most areas.

I too have noticed that behaviour. I would classify this as a bug for certain.
