When the color picker is opened, the red field is automatically selected. It's very, very rare that I'd want to copy the red component of a color. However, I copy the HEX value very often. Usually it's to copy a color, then paste it into another picker, like when I'm copying a shape's fill color.

It'd be great if the hex field was automatically selected when the picker is opened, saving several clicks (four clicks when copying and pasting a shape's fill color).

Even though It's  years after implementation, I'd like to show my gratitude, now that I finally found the founder of the idea to instantly select the HEX value in the color panel. 

It's a productivity optimizing implementation I'm using every single day. It's the only color value existing out of one field, so it can be simply copy pasted into other field by just opening up the dialogue copying, go to the desired field and paste it again.

I know I'm just explaining what it can be used for, but I'm glad I got to see who is responsible for the idea. 

Thanks @Marc Edwards!

If there's anything... 🙂

Cheers!
