Personally I would prefer it if all six were present all the time, to the right.
And then move the preview color box and the current color box up above the sliders, as wide as the sliders and as tall as possible.
This would make working with colors easier as large previews are better. Like this:
If you make such a huge panel I assume that you don’t prioritize the compactness of it. It would make sense to move some parts elsewhere in that scenario, but it would also need at some point to change its spacing behavior from the small version.
Other than that, this panel is a huge step forward comparing to the previous one.
I think it’s well thought. The only thing I could ask for is a better custom color and swatches list.
There is more while we are at it (reminding by repetition, I know it’s been logged already) - the Alpha dot is really hard to see, should be solid color or thicker outline…
Clearly there is a lot of room for improvement with the color dialog…
Well, I would say I need to open it 100 times per hour, especially considering there is no real-time viewport color update when in the dialog… now take 100 times 2 seconds per dialog show = ~3 minutes per hour just waiting for the dialog to open, x 8 hr day=24 minute wait for color dialog open… you get the idea
What a colorful guy . I saw your wish for the real-time color update, forgot to upvote it.
I would even see Rhino panel as a floating/docked one. I don’t know how it would work for changing layers colors or print colors but for custom object display color it could work well i think.
Maybe some button toggle at the top, - real-time on and what we want to adjust in the real-time?
