For the QGIS users in the group, how the hell do you take a color sample from outside the application to add color swatches to your palette?

 

I can't seem to find any color picker or color sampler function in the styles or colors menus for QGIS 2.16. Trying to build a custom set of land use colors, but would rather not type all the values in. Any help is appreciated!

Found this entry on site linked below re color sampling in QGIS: "Note that support for [color] sampling is operating system dependent, and currently it is not available under OSX."

 

It's from a couple years back but must still be ab issue. Not sure why, every other application on my Mac that accepts color palette inputs uses the built in OS color sampler.

Problem solved, there is an option to use native color picker in the main application options. This is much easier then using built in interface. Not sure why they can't be made to work together.
