Cannot paste an accent colour

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to settings → Appearance
  2. Open the colour picker
  3. Set it to hex
  4. Try pasting a 6-digit hexadecimal value

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [N]

Why would I need to do that? This is a totally fresh/virgin/default install. Only added one plugin that I can’t do without.

Expected result

Colour gets pasted and applied.

Actual result

  1. Field gets cleared. Whether colour on the clipboard contains a # or not.
  2. Accent colour becomes black, even though no colour has been selected.

This is a limitations of chrome color picker

Clearly it can take a paste, or it wouldn’t empty the field. So what does it expect me to paste there?

Let me double check this, I might be confusing with a other part of the UI.

yes I confirm it’s using the native color picker that doesn’t support paste

In chrome, go here and try for yourself
