Color copy and paste script

Hi!

I've made a script that does two things:


1. It makes it possible to copy and paste colors between elements.
2. It lets you copy the unique colors of a selection into a palette (a list of colored rectangles)

 

The script tries to be smart, it always pastes into existing fill or stroke, so you can copy a fill color and paste it into another element with stroke.

 

Just did it for myself since I've always been missing that feature in illustrator (recolor and eyedropper is not always what I want).


I just wanted to check if other people would be interested in this script.

Of course. Message me your email and I'll send over a zip. Warning that I just wrote it, so there absolutely can be bugs.
