I want to see improvements for the panel swatches. It is very useful to see its numeric value next to the color name in the current color mode.

But then the repetition of "CMYK" is quite redundant :-)

The color values could be displayed in the tooltip.

Alas, not unnecessarily. There should be maximum visibility. Tooltip is of course good, but it's extra movement and extra time, which is usually not enough :)

There would only be repetition if you included it in CMYK colour mode. For Pantone and other spot colours, the values would be the (nearest) CMYK equivalent; e.g. PMS.

Yes, but the color list with value is much longer, whose browsing time will be considerably more demanding.

Yes! That's it. :) When digital values are specified in the palette, you can quickly scroll through and select the desired values.
