cjmcguinness Posted April 30, 2008 Share Posted April 30, 2008 This is not quite a full feature request, but there's a niggling issue with the Colors window that I have been meaning to mention; it's by no means a major issue, just a point of consistency that (in my opinion) could be fixed/amended for better operation. When using the Colors window, for selecting Primary and Secondary colors, when the focus is set at 'Primary' you can left-click on the main color wheel to select the primary color; currently right-click does nothing. However, if you use the color palette below the wheel, you can left-click to select a Primary color and right-click to select the Secondary color. Now, if you switch to Secondary color (from the combo) a left-click on the color wheel selects the Secondary color (as you would expect) and right-click still does nothing. In the palette area, left-click changes the Secondary color, but now right-click still also changes the Secondary color (you might expect that it would change the Primary color). The same continues in the expanded colors window, with the RGB and HSV values - only left-clicking can change the Primary color (or Secondary, if you have this selected from the combo). Now, I am not a programmer, nor familiar with the capabilities of configuring mouse-click actions, but my question is, is it possible to program the left and right mouse buttons to control the Primary and Secondary color choices in the color wheel, palette and RGB/HSV sections all by the same method - left-click adjusts the Primary and right-click adjusts the Secondary (and vice-versa)? In fact, if this were possible it would negate the need for any drop-down combo for selecting Primary and Secondary color to perform adjustments, as all Primary and Secondary colors could be selected/adjusted by use of just the left & right mouse buttons. Is this something that is possible? I would like to suggest, at the very least, that when the user has selected Secondary color, that a right-click in the color palette should change the Primary colour; as this would be consistent with user experience when in Primary mode. Does anyone else agree, or have an opinion on this? Thanks-CJ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
