Hi, me again with yet another "I wish I were using Photoshop" sort of request.
It would be nice if there were a floating window thing that let me always have access to color swatches, and also see what the current foreground/background color are. Ideally one that is a bit more space-efficient than the color picker, as well.
Right now selecting swatch colors is a bit of a multi-step process, which slows down a flat coloring workflow.
Relatedly, it'd also be nice if one could use an image as a color picker swatch reference, like for my comics I usually have a coloring reference with a sketchy-blobby version of my characters that I can pick from. The way color picking works in Pixelmator doesn't make this very convenient (since each document has its own foreground/background color) but if there were a means of loading a swatch image that could be picked from directly, that would speed things up a lot.
Another nice thing with Photoshop is you can hold down the I key and click on a color (even in another open document), and then when you release the I key it goes back to the tool you were on. I got very used to using this to speed up my coloring.
What features would you like to see in Pixelmator Pro?
Maybe make it so that in the style toolbox it's possible to expand the color box (which is currently showing the selected color + the dropper button) into a slightly more space-efficient version of the color selection popup. Similar to how it's possible to expand (and un-expand) the macOS standard "save file" dialog.
