Please correct the hotkey for the quick color picker. The iOS version mistakenly uses "i" instead of "option" as the desktop version has been using for over 20 years. Countless other programs have mimicked the desktop version of photoshop by adopting this basic hotkey as well, including Procreate and Painter, making it a basic intuitive staple in the world of digital design.


90% of the population is right handed and paints with their right hand which means that the color picker key is most useful if placed on the left hand side of the keyboard to be accessed with the left hand while the right hand is painting. Choosing to place the hotkey on the right hand side of the keyboard (where "i" is placed) makes it much more cumbersome to access while painting with the right hand. Not to mention, why change one of the most basic cross-program hotkeys that is used by millions of users countless times a day for over 20 years?
