color chooser is malfunctioning
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
The 4th type of color choosing method is not working properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GIMP
2. open color choosing window by double click color choosing button
3. click the watercolor (4th) tab (with brush icon)
4. select a color from the square window.
Clicking the color wouldn't select the color I want. Upon multiple click, the
color gradually changes to black. Dragging from one point of the square to other
point makes the color blackish. Dragging from one point of the square to right
side of the window makes the color brighter.
Proper color should be selected.
This is not related to the problem; but I want the color I have be added to the
history my mistake to be removed. So, there should be a color history removal tool.
The watercolor picker more or less works as designed. Contrary to real
watercolors, you must start with a bright color (adjust the slides to the right
or pick a color with another color picker), from then on it will only get
darker. Please refer to the GIMP documentation (currently at
(In reply to comment #1)
The documentation do not inform what would be the result of dragging. I have
noticed that dragging from one point of the square to right side of the window
makes the color brighter (reddish as red is on the right side).
So, it is not a bug. But the effect of dragging is not documented.
