Colour Picker opacity


#1

Please, please can we have an opacity slider in the colour picker palettes. It opens up a whole new world of options.

Agreed, hopefully it’s still being worked on as talked about here:

PS: Skala Color is nice huh. :wink:

OK I’m glad I’m not the only one who wants this. I thought it was a built in part of OS X and I use it constantly when building websites.

Last night I read that you can use NSColorPanelMBS class from MBS Plugins but this is probably something that Norm would have to implement, assuming it would work with Blocs: http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.net/class-nscolorpanelmbs.shtml

Yes the Skala Color Picker is excellent. I have rarely looked at the others since installing this. For the benefit of others here is the download link https://bjango.com/mac/skalacolor/

The opacity option is switched off for global swatches, however, you can still use opacity with colours applied via a class. The global swatches need to be re-engineered in order to support opacity, I’m certain it will happen but I can’t give a time frame right now.

That’s good to know, Norm.

It’s a PIA not to have straight-forward opacity control.

We’re all waiting… :wink:

@pauland I remember you mentioned this during the original 2.0 beta, you will have your wish, one of these days :sunglasses:

LOL, if only it were true in life!

There is no rush on this. Anytime before Tuesday will be fine. :slight_smile:

Any progress made on including an opacity slider in the colour picker? It would be nice to see this in 2.5 or earlier.
