Short description of error
No options for color picker in vertex paint mode.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create any type of object
  2. Go in to vertex paint mode
  3. Sample color from mesh
  4. Check popup menu, there is black box but its empty (there is no options like in texture paint mode so no Sample Merged and Add to Palete checkbox). It looks like its a Sample Merged by default but i would recommend to uncheck this, cause vertex paint is often used with matcaps and its better to leave this unchecked.



Event Timeline

William Reynish (billreynish) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Confirmed, Medium.

Confirmed. Although sampling vertex colors this way using the S key is super hidden.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) We should probably add a sample tool in the toolbar here.

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton): It seems like there's an issue with the redo.

The bug seems to be fixed, agree a sample tool should be added.
