Pixel art is time consuming some people like me try to make art faster this feature exist in ms-dos era in some old pixel art tool from japan and modern ones it uses the right click button to pick any color, i know that pro motion-ng is the verily modern legacy of deluxe paint that’s why i said “optional option” would be nice to activate this option from preferences.
Here’s a workaround in PMNG v8.b8:
- Go to: File > Preferences > Mouse Buttons tab
- Insert the color picker shortcut key on
Without modifier key input box.
- In my case, the color picker tools’ shortcut key is
- Tick the
+ Left Mouse Button.
- You can now activate the color picker tool via clicking the middle mouse button and draw straight right after.
Additional notes for the method:
- You cannot select a color for your BG, therefore, can’t draw with your RMB.
- If you left
+ Left Mouse Button un-ticked, it will only activate the color picker tool and you can select which color to pick for your FG/BG.
Demo after applying workaround:
Sorry english is not my fort you are saying that i can set in that area the right click button to behave as color picker?, i’m asking for a replace bg color for the color picker in settings
The problem is that when defining the RMB to always pick a color then a lot of functions would break that rely on using the RMB to do some sort of action.
But technically it would be possible to include that.
I strongly recommend to just hold Ctrl - key to activate the temporary pipette and then click on the color you need. This is the fastest way to pick a color.
Another, less breaking way would be if I added shortcuts to pick the color under cursor. So you could assign a shortcut like “p” and it would immediately pick the color under cursor just like you want to see it for the RMB. Would that make sense for you?
don’t worry jan i understand
