Pulled from bug 37480 comment 17.

4) enhancement: i like the color picker, as it resembles the color picker found in photoshop and it would be great if it would also allowed to grab colors from the document, as a user might want a color found in an inserted image.

is it the same of Bug 85521 - Colors of the document are not shown in the color picker ?
Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-03 14:50:50 UTC
Bug 85521 is about colors already used in a document, this bug is about grabbing colors that could be part of the document but not limited to just the text, it could grab it from images or objects in the document as well. This is similar to being able to grab colors in image editing software like photoshop and gimp.
