Temporary color picker tool doesn't activate

I wanted to color pick via pressing the Ctrl button but the icon doesn’t show up.

I tried to test if maybe the Ctrl button is stuck. So i opened a web browser and scrolled up and down. Everything seems to be normal.

In the demo below, i’ll be

  • scrolling up/down as is (zoom),
  • scroll while pressing Ctrl (switch color),
  • and press Ctrl as is (supposed to be, color picker).

temporary tool doesn't work

All “temporary” keybindings seem nominal

This was supposed to be the end of the report but i saw this unexpected behavior last minute.
Where only when the Move tool is selected and i press and hold the Ctrl button, some other icon shows behind it. Like a mirror of the move tool, maybe? Not sure if this is related, or a different issue entirely.

Below, i press and hold the Ctrl button on and off.
weird move tool icon

Hi @cageburner,

when having the move tool and holding Ctrl you activate the “create copy on drag” mode of the move tool. This is normal.
Your key settings look fine, so I currently have no idea what could cause the Ctrl key not activating the temporary color picker :thinking:
Can you maybe export the shortcut settings into a file and send it over to me? I could then check if I can duplicate the effect.


Update: emailed shortcut file
