Summary0001708: Color Wheel
DescriptionA color picking dialog that informs designers about harmonic color combinations would be a welcome addition for students learning practical color theory for profesional DTP, although may not be too useful for seasoned pro's, who would probably scoff at such a feature, or complete novices who may prefere a 'crayon box' style color-naming interface. Even complete novices may find it useful, however, if a good explanation of how & why to use it is in the docs :) A perfect example I use in webdesign work is at

great idea to add this. the selected color should always be shown by a small circle in the color wheel, not only before and after releasing the mouse button.

Possibly it's worth asking for permission to integrate the whole Color Scheme Generator 2 from the above named website...

reporter   ~0004721 has a nice list of the best o' the web colour scheme tools. is especially interesting - perhaps some kind of 'online' mode could be added to Scribus that allows the colr system to integrate over XML-RPC or something..? :)
