Shortcut to activate eyedropper to pick a color

I really miss the (l) colorpipette/colorpicker shortcut. Because I now have too much (mouse/pen)movement to the right panel, in stead of doing all with shortcuts... This and more shortcuts from photoshop/illustrator like (z) for zoom.

        Ctrl + C, it's a very frequently used shortcut for me in Sketch.

        For such a small and simple feature, this honestly should have shipped with release.

        To be clear, I'm not as bullish on the eyedropper tool's function being exactly like illustrator's (which is awesome) - I can wait for that.

        But please, for the love of all that is good and holy in this world, just give us the keyboard shortcut!

        This is something I really miss when I started using sketch after years of Illustrator.

        One of the best color picker is of Illustrator. It not only pick the colors but you can also apply the styles of the object. It would be great to have that in XD but if not then just a short cult with do. It's quite annoying not to have this basic feature for Adobe users.

        Came here to request this as well! I keep finding myself "I+click" and nothing happening. It's getting pretty tedious.

        When I think about the lack of this very standard functionality, I can't help but wonder if the UX team within Adobe that is working on Adobe XD Initiative is actually familiar with the standard photoshop/illustrator/inDesign workflow - and if not, I am very conerned about the future of the product.

        I put in another request for this keyboard command. I use this all the time because I like to create a special art board just for my color pallet and select the color picker with the keyboard command and select various color from my pallet. Similar to the way a fine artist selects colors using his paint brush and paint pallet. If you try this, technique out you will see how smooth the technique is. __ Cheers.
