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.

        This probably slows down my process the most. I don't know how there's so few votes on this.

        Can you guys please at least put it in a menu so we can set custom shortcuts via OS X? :)

        Can't imagine waiting more than 1+ month without this.

        Hi,

        Fill would be a good starting point. I guess you could add "shift" to any shortcut combination for the stroke as well.

        Would it be possible to give an update on how the review is going? This is my biggest day-to-day pet peeve ever since transferring my workflow to XD.

        Yes... please add shortcuts and I would recommend having a larger right click menu option. Unless you are providing mobile support for XD design and prototyping, I don't see a need to limit contextual right click menus to Cut/Copy/Paste/Delete. Maya did a great job of this by using the space bar to create a radial hierarchy of menu items. Worth a look.

        I agree with Manuel. The biggest challenge in my workflow is in color selection, particularly because I'm constantly forced to click on the eyedropper. One really quick piece of low hanging fruit would be to increase the hit area of the dropper icon. I wish I had a dime for every time I missed the eyedropper.

        Regarding shortcuts, Eyedropper, Fill, and Stroke shortcuts would be really helpful. I would also consider maintaining a diverse set of color tools and perhaps a way to toggle tabs within the color picker panel (Hex Map, List, Crayons, etc). Throughout my experience thus far, each one of those color picker sections was of good use to me.

        Yes..... Please have at-least the eye dropper keyboard command on the next release. Believe it or not not having this keyboard command prevents the creative flow by slowing the user down. Thanks.....

        A stroke color shortcut would be nice if it was a modifier key (alt/option) added to the standard fill color shortcut.

        +1. The ctrl+c shortcut is vital for designing high fidelity at a fast pace. It's one of those features that makes you frustrated not to have once you've gotten used to the workflow and speed of having it. It feels as if you hit a wall every time you want to eye drop a color, very frustrating action to do without a shortcut since it's so repetitive.

        Magnifying glass is not vital but greatly appreciated.

        It'd be great to pull up the 'on the fly color picker' with the i key or even Control+C similar to Sketch.
