Color picker now 2 clicks away
Hello the inclusion of the color picker within the color panel instead of keeping it in the appearance (on the right of Fill and Border) feels not intuitive anymore.
Since your Libraries Panel does only change the fill and not the border color (on double click) I invoked the "pipette" aka color picker, like 50 times a day and now I have to click twice.
I think this was a bad decision and would like to tell you first hand. It's always got to try but I think on this one, you are regressing and not making your product simple, since you changed a pretty straight forward operation into a harder operation.

I actually think its a good idea to move picker to color palette so that we can pick multiple colors for gracients, and also have it for shadow option.
However now its a two clicks to select the picker, if we can just have a keyboard shortcut for colo picker, that would solve all the fuss about this issue.
Depends on the definition of Bug :)
As experience designer it feel like a design bug. The code works the design might be suboptimal.
But I agree that there might be other solutions to the problem than just reverting back.
Just to give you more context.
It was super fast to apply colors to border and fill by having the picker accessible right there. You could also pick and apply same color to line from fill or inverse...
You also had the ability to focus an object and scroll to the item you wanted to pick color from, and hit color picker... shazaaam.
Even the pick from library is easier since to apply line you have to tight clock and choose ..as border.
I trust in you guys to cosider how best to adress this.
I agree - moving the color picker was a bad idea - it's now two clicks away... one click, please..!
Can't we just add shortcut fol color picker? It could work line in illustrator. You select what you want, press "i" and click on object you want to pick from. It's the fastest way i know to change object color.
Adobe XD is build to be fast. Please don't make the basic tasks slow. Now picking color is definitely not at the "speed of thought".

Since this was an intentional move by the XD team, it's not a bug. Thus, I created a thread for this under Feature Requests. Please upvote: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/32330320-return-the-fill-color-picker-to-its-previous-locat

I agree that not only should it be a single click away, but there should be a keyboard shortcut. I use the fill color picker many, many times a day.
Agre, where is the benefit, i see it only in the gradients, but how often we use gradients instead of pic a color.
Install a short cut too.
That was a bad decision . It's frustrating.

I don't know why you guys removed the color picker from the where it was. Now there's a blank space and you only made it more difficult to be accessed.
I'll be waiting for it to come back to the original position.
PLASE BRING IT BACK TO WHAT IT WAS ASAP!!!!
That was definitely something that made the experience much worse. I also use that color picker many times a day and now I have to double clics to access it - it's REALLY annoying actually! :,,,,((((
I hope you bring it back to the front ASAP PLEASE!!!!!!!!
