HEX codes - overly opinionated input fields in app and new Express desktop

I guess this is a feature request! Request: make HEX input fields unopinionated on Desktop and app.

1. Previously, when using the Desktop custom color field, I could type in a keyboard text expansion shortcut set for each of my clients, which I now cannot because of the opinionated input blocking on the custom HEX code set. It only allows letters and numbers that would be in a HEX code (BEFORE you push submit). 

 

The previous functionality was better for me because I have all my clients' branding colors saved as text expansion shortcuts following a pattern I know well. If a client is called Nike Plumbing, and they have red as a primary color and orange as an accent color in their branding. I might type in ##nikp for Nike Plumbing Primary, and it spits out the appropriate HEX code. ##niks spits out the secondary accent color. And at that point, the previous system recognized it as a color and applied it.

 

2. On the app, the HEX code input is a tumbler slider nightmare device that doesn't allow pasting in codes.

 

(Also, if you feel the urge to respond to this post with 'why are you doing it this way and not this better way,' may I preemptively ask you to go away? 🙂 I'm aware of the branding and library tools. This is my workflow, and it works for me across all other apps and dev environments. Adobe Express is not my only tool.)
