Hello,

I have two suggestions for the colour picker in the Colour & Swatches studios.

  1. Hold option/alt to immediately apply the picked colour to the selected layers.
  2. Keep the loupe active when switching apps as long as the mouse button is held down. This is so we can easily pick colours from other windows without having to resize the Affinity window, pick the colour, and resize the window again.

Thank you for your consideration.

Feature requests & improvements to existing ones should posted to the appropriate Feature Requests & Feedback forum. They may get overlooked if you post them here in the desktop questions forum.

BTW, I doubt your second suggestion is doable since each app must be able to control the pointer when it is the active app.

Oops, I was going to ask a question, and forgot to change to the other forum before posting that.

I think it could be possible because you can for example drag files and text between apps, and you can start dragging screenshots (⇧⌘4) in one app, command+tab to a different app and then when you release the mouse button it will capture the other app's windows. So there are examples of this functionality, but maybe this is something only Apple can do.

True, but that functionality is provided by the OS & while it is in use I don't think either app has direct control of the pointer. Maybe it is doable despite that, but if nothing else there are security issues to consider any time info is passed between apps, so the OS has to mediate this somehow.
