This was an idea I had (which I can probably code too). The current foreground/background selector on the toolbar is bit difficult to use for the following reasons in my opinion:
- foreground color is by far the most important part out of all of these (changes very frequently), but it can be difficult to see since it is so small
- hard to tell the difference between foreground color and background color since they are the same size squares
- swap foreground/background function is small and hard to click (especially on tablets)
I know my proposal isn't the "industry standard" look, but I do think it is more clear to see and easier to use and click on. While I did convert the "reset to black/white" functionality to a reset icon which might make it harder to tell what it does. I also think it is by far the least important part. I was debating on removing it, but do think it occasionally has a use.
I would be interested to hear people's thoughts...
