Additional information

All elements are styled using something along the lines of input[type="text"]:focus to give them a box shadow. The color input is missing in the CSS selector and this is the reason it is not highlighted in the same way. Additionally, the element is square so it doesn’t look great if you just apply an outline.


  • Add input[type="color"]:focus to the selector in line 4489 in app.css
  • Add input[type="color"] {border-radius: 50%;} in the same file


This will be fixed in the next update.
