Return the Fill eyedropper to its previous location and add a keyboard shortcut
I rely heavily on the color picker, and it is now two clicks away instead of one. Furthermore, there's no keyboard shortcut for it. Returning the color picker to its previous collection and/or adding a keyboard shortcut will save me a lot of time in the long run.
This is a crosspost of "Color picker now 2 clicks away" under the Bugs section: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/32248015-color-picker-now-2-clicks-away
Hi, everyone – this feature unfortunately has two different parts to it. As you probably noticed, we moved the eyedropper back to the property inspector a couple of months ago. We have a separate request tracking the shortcut to activate the eyedropper, which if you’re interested in, you can upvote here: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13029870
Yes! Yes! Yes! Just map it to the 'i' button as per other Adobe Products (Illustrator mainly)

It makes it really hard to change colors easily. If things are going to be hidden it would have to at least have hotkeys.

Shortcut is a must! Could be 'i' for fill and 'shift-i' or something for border

Hitting the "I" key at any time to get an eye dropper like in other apps would be nice, but I get that would require some other thinking in terms of selecting Border/Fill/Shadow first.
Why did you hide the eyedropper until after you select the color tool?
Before the last update, the eyedropper tool was accessible on the Appearance panel, next to the Fill button. Now, it's in the popup when you select "Fill".
Having the eyedropper housed in this popup adds one more step for using the tool, and I use it very often (as I will drop in a set of colors next to my wireframe and color the wires using the eyedropper as I go).
Please consider moving the eyedropper back out to the Appearance panel.
I think it's fine to have it where it is as long as you have a simple shortcut for it - "i" for example.
It should live in both places. Shortcut would be super useful!!!

It would be great if the eyedroppers came back to be on the first level of interaction instead of buried in the color picker menu.
I used to be able to quickly recolor items or explore coloration by clicking on the eyedropper, now it's a chore.
Why did you remove the pipette next to colors on Adobe XD!? It is counter intuitive to have to click on the color to take the pipette!
