Edit a custom color. Make this easier.

Question

OMG!!! Seven clicks just to get to the edit a custom color screen. Better to have an edit color command in a contextual menu. Click the color in the Attributes Palette, right click, select edit color.

And it needs to be able to be edited live to see the results live. I'm an hour into trying to get a color I need all because of the incredible amount of clicking going in and out to edit the color. Yes, I am frustrated.

Here's a video of manipulating a color with Affinity Photo which is a $50 app, 1 GB in size, and it takes 2 seconds to boot the app. I would have saved an hour of time last night if Vectorworks could adjust a custom color palette color this way.

And while we're at it, a better color picker that is built into the program, and not the OS one, which especially in Windows really sucks. The sample rectangle is way too tiny to get a good grip on subtle hue changes, and the accuracy required for moving the target in the color "field" is ridiculous.

A much bigger field and sample rectangle within the program, now that would be sweet.
