I was reading <a href="https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93813">Bug 93813</a> and got to thinking about how the entire suite, not just Draw, needs this feature as swatch creation in LO is non-trivial.
I'm pretty sure some developer on your team had already considered this...but just in case...
I was thinking LO could hook into the existing system-wide color picker available in Win/Mac/Linux...ah, Linux (regardless of DE) doesn't have a system-wide color picker.
So, instead of "reinventing the wheel" and coding from scratch, couldn't an existing GPL/MIT solution be integrated, thus eliminating the need for (at least) three different solutions.
Pardon me for being presumptious. I admit I'm not in anyway a programmer, just an end-user, but I feel in this day and age a suite-wide color picker is commonplace, and judging by questions and requests posted here, on ask.libreoffice.org and elsewhere, I'm not alone. Thank you.
Rereading, don't see this as viable approach. Difficult to "integrate" whatever external libs are available by os/DE--and then issues for consistency cross platform.

Which is a show-stopper.

What issue/use case brings you to the proposed solution?
first off, my apologies for the delay in responding.

Okay. I leave the approach to whatever the developers deem best. All I know is that GIMP, Blender, Krita, Inkscape, Scribus, etc. all have a pipette/eyedropper tool. I don't presume to know how those applications have integrated said tool but it leads me to believe the problem is not surmountable nor novel technology.

Well, then...that settles that. Thanks for your time.
