(This idea is something we’ve heard from customers over time from several of our sources of feedback. We’re posting it here to gauge how well this fits our users’ needs. So please let us know what you think.)


When using the Fill tool, it takes too many clicks to choose a color with the eye dropper. It would be great to have the eye dropper available as a button immediately when I switch to the Fill Tool. I don't want to have to first open the color picker.

We were surprised how much love this got. It’s been something we’ve wanted to do in the near future, but your votes kicked this up ahead of some other things on the list. We aren’t sure of the exact location in the UI just yet, but we’ll keep you all in the loop as it gets closer to being started.

Thank you for voting!
