Colour Picker

Post by mkochsch » Wed 03 Oct 2007 03:00

Is there a setting to switch the colour picker from Per Cent, to Bytes, to Hex when it's over the image? Thx.

It seems that the colour picker is fixed to percent, but View > Dialogs > picture info can be customized, try the right mouse button on a number in that dialog.

The unit of the colour picker tooltip itself can't be modified, but the tooltip uses the same unit as the Color Editor. So if you change the unit there, it will be used by the colour picker, too.
At the moment Picture Info has its own unit, which is in my opinion not the best solution, because I think, all tools should format color values the same way.

Hmm. Your's show Per Cent...mine shows Bytes! I thought mine showed Per Cent at one point too but I can't seem to switch it back. There's a setting somewhere, but I haven't found it yet.

I found it: Double-click on the Foregrund/Background-Color, that will open the color-editor where you have r/g/b- or other sliders. Right-click on one of the textboxes and you can choose the unit.
