[solved] Color palette for stroke?

Postby theozh » Fri Mar 03, 2017 4:09 am

Is there a way to display a color palette for the stroke like there is for the fill?

Of course, I can choose the stroke color in the Fill&Stroke dialog but if I need to change the color pretty often I would prefer to simply click on an "exact" predefined stroke color instead of typing numbers or clicking approximately somewhere into the color wheel.
Simply as easy as it exists for the fill. Maybe this palette can also be used for the stroke by changing a setting?
Couldn't find any stroke color palette so far...

Shift+click on the palette should set the stroke.
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

Thanks, @tylerdurden, so easy if one knows it...
Well, you can even find it in the manual... pretty much "hidden" under Palette & Swatches (whatever the latter is) or Dropper tool. Sorry, for asking a RTFM-question.

Yeah, there is so much I have missed along this road... :oops:

(And, it's not like every feature is robustly documented, or still applicable if it is/was.)

Ouch! :oops: Thanks @~suv! So far, when I clicked the palette I was focussing on the (fill) result on the screen not on the status bar. I should pay more attention to the status bar... ;)
