Floating Color Picker

  1. What do you want to see in Hype?
    Instead of having a color picker panel which opens up and seems to be attached to the color picker button… with a caption style arrow. I often have drag to expand the actual attached OSX system color panel. It would be great to allow the color pane to be floating like so many other applications for Mac. Then, when the user re-opens the color panel later on, the previous position and re-sizing are remembered by Hype.

  2. Have you found a workaround for this problem?
    I have not found a workaround yet.

  3. Are there examples of other apps with this feature? Or, have you seen examples of this elsewhere on the web? (Please include a URL)

Yes, Apple Motion

Apple Keynote

Indeed. One of the biggest time wasters in Hype's interface - constantly having to stretch the color picker out. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Thanks for the request.

We currently have a hidden preference you can use. Enter this into the Terminal.app:

defaults write com.tumult.Hype4 useColorPickerPopOver -bool NO

That solved the problem. Awesome Jonathan… Thanks!
