@ForestHymn Glad we're on the same page!

Btw, did you try my suggestion of enabling the crosshair? You can get a fast colour picker with precision without the magnifying glass by activating it. I made a quick video showing how to activate it. It is a decent workaround until the developers fix the colour picker to have a proper indicator when holding down alt (of some reason my recording device can't show the crosshair and brush size circle when I make these videos, but I assure you, they are there). Desktop 2019.06.21 - Edit: Forgot to add that if you want to make the brush preview disappear to prevent the brush from blocking your view, there is an option for that just above the crosshair option I previously mentioned.
