Summary0006122: I prefer colour wheel and sliders than infinite long colour list
DescriptionThat is. It would be better to have a colour wheel panel in place of the colour list that is very annoying to roll down every single time.
TagsNo tags attached.

Aren't you confusing things here? There's a colour list for already defined colours. You can easily add a new colour by clicking the "New" button. Whether it would be useful to integrate the colour wheel with the colour dialogs (new and edit) remains a subject for discussion. See also 6107.

and what about an option: "show used colors"
... i mostly work with the provided list of colors, but i only need the full list at the beginning of the work and when i want to choose a new color.

(so "remove unused" is not an option... but hide unused is one :-)

a button "show/hide unused" under the "remove unused" one in the color dialog could do it for me.

i fear i could also try to implement it, if the devs agree that this is an interesting feature...

as anounced on the list i'd like to put a checkbox in the colormanagement dialog (colorm.cpp) to switch the status of "show/hide unused colors".
(a screenshot is attached)

now, i've noticed that that the ColorManager doesn't acces the prefsManager.

here the variables which are passed to the ColorManager:

ColorManager* dia = new ColorManager(this, edc, doc, prefsManager->colorSetName(), prefsManager->appPrefs.CustomColorSets);

so i could use the reference i get with "this" (this->prefsManager).
but: should i?

This issue relates to 0000612 and the discussion there is to be kept in mind imo.

thanks louis for the relation!

now, i don't really understand which of the features discussed there should be implemented and how.

i'm trying to put my ideas on the "development" wiki page at

i will try to summarize there what i think is to save from 0000612 and i will be happy to read some comments from you or other users/devs.

i will then put an abstract of the work here and/or in 0000612

... and i will go on in first implementing a way to hide the unused colors.

What about also adding HLS as many other graphics and DTP apps do? And what about the choice of RGB, CMYK, etc. sliders OR a colour wheel OR the colour rectangle?
