Complains about the new colour picker.

March 31, 2020 at 11:30am
Great work on new picker guys but the "UX" of new picker doesn't seem good. For eg, I can't seem to find "Favourite" icon, now I have to switch between "Favourite colours", "Recent" and "Recommened palettes" Please guys, try to match the flow of new colour picker with old one.

Hey Shah, we've removed the Favourite Color icon as we no longer support the feature to add or remove favorite colors in the new color picker. We recommend using the Design System Library for that purpose instead.

But the favorite colour thing worked pretty well. For example, if we're at prior brainstorming phase of project we don't need to have "Design systems" but I definitely want to speed up my process by using favorite colours.

Why would you remove feature that's already working pretty great and helping ease the flow.!

Without trying to be confrontational with any of my comments as others may have been, I have to agree with and others on this feature change of not allowing users to save favorite colors to the color picker palette as we were able to do previously. From a product and business perspective I understand the business need to entice customers to tier up their subscription plans to access more robust features to increase revenue streams and hopefully profits for the business, but this small change feels like a major step back.
A compromise could have been limiting the number of saved colors while still allowing the recent colors feature or possibly allowing users's to install their own color library. But the complete removal of a feature that most users found useful - if that was the case based on customer feedback, may not have been the best product decision in my opinion.
and the rest of the UXPin team are doing a fantastic job continually refining and evolving the product and platform. This is why some other well known brands seem to be referencing UXPin's features a lot in their product updates. This is also why I've been using UXPin over other products for the past couple of years, because even though the brand and platform may not be as well known or getting increased awareness as other out there (Ahem… InVision Studio and Figma) UXPin still blows them away in my opinion with a richer feature set that meets the needs of todays designers.
Just check out this updated list of Design Tools and the features that UXPin has compared to others. https://uxtools.co/tools/prototyping/
Keep up the excellent work! And please consider revisiting the favorite color feature in the color picker.

It's not even there for Pro-plan users. So I don't think it has to do anything with business. And yes, I'm trying my bit to spread the awareness about the tool, starting online classes. First is class is one hour from now.

Thank you for the comments! Actually, the decision behind removing favourites is not a way to up-sell. We've decided to remove some of the features (when we already have ones that can support the same use case) in order to cut down the technical complexity and focus our work. We fully understand that might upset some of our customers and we're sorry for that.

Also, design libraries are available to almost all plans and we're working to enable it to everyone, no matter what plan you use.

Thanks for your response and providing some insight into the decision behind the functionality of the new color picker. I look forward to reading more about how the new color picker is received by the UXPin community and having design libraries available to all account plans.

Exactly my point. Neither we have "eyedropper" to make color palette side by our art-board and use it like we do in Adobe Creative Suite.

I think you guys should think about this again and go back. Maybe you have a great vision to push people to use "Design systems" but in reality, we just don't use UXPin for final design. From things to be done using pen-paper or balsamiq to final delivery to he done in Zeplin, we practically live in UXPin for all these phases. So for kicking off the project, I don't think we have time to focus on "design systems"

I think one thing I learned here is that a lot of people are using UXPin as in between phases, or prototyping phases, but not everyone is using it as a finishing tool. That being said, design system features are important because even if you host a design system elsewhere, being able to match UXPin to it makes things easier

It's not even that we are using it in the in between phase or finishing tool. It's the whole design process. When you have specific clients with specific colors in their branding it is easy to make a palette, you already have the colors available so you can start to add them in a system.
But when starting a new company, new color palettes etc. I really miss the favourite function. I like to switch between color schemes, see what works and what doesn't. I like to favourite some colors, just for the sake to get back to, to save the 'original' color and the recent colors doesn't cut it for that purpose. I like to switch up a lot of colors and thus have various of colors in my document till I'm ready to make the color palette final and placing it in a design system. Favourite colors saved a lot of time here.
