Color selector on Snagit 4 (Mac) has changed; can we still access the standard Mac selector?

In Snagit 3, any color selector item opened the standard Mac color selector, which includes many options for picking colors, including the "box of crayons," various dials and sliders, etc. This lets you quickly pick a named color (which is great for keeping colors consistent) or you can be highly precise with luminance, tint, saturation, etc.,. But Snagit 4 has a very limited color chooser that basically forces you to memorize or write down/look up RGB values if you want to keep your colors consistent. (Or choose from the small palate of 11 pre-defined and un-named colors, vs. Mac's 48 pre-defined and named colors.) While the new pop-up color selector is fast, it seems like a huge step backwards in terms of ability.

Or am I missing something? Is there a preferences item or some button that I can invoke to use the standard Mac color chooser?

Hi,

We've had a number of people requesting this, so we are looking into a way to have both. For now, you can open the color picker from another app and drag colors onto our color wells. http://www.screencast.com/t/Za6mIVDcb
