GraphStudio Color Picker Bug

Not sure if this is by design or a bug but I cannot type out a new HEX code on the first try.

To reproduce:

  1. Add new vertex
  2. Select the color HEX
  3. Type in the starting 3 charaters of any code, for example FF6. Notice how the hex code autocompletes to something, which to me is unexpected - I’d expect to be able to type out my entire code.

*If I now select the autocompleted HEX and overwrite that, it works fine.

That’s not a bug, but a feature :slight_smile: . Although you can argue about its usefulness.

In web development it’s quite typical to use the abbreviated form of hexadecimal colour codes. I wonder what do the web developers do with the time they free up by not typing 3 digits…

I think, GS should accept abbreviated form (and even colour names), but it should not immediately rewrite the abbreviated form to the standard form while you are typing.

I will submit an improvement request to the GS dev team.
