It is fixed. Although I had to assign "Pick Color" to button3 (and it works perfectly) instead of "ColorPickerPopup" (which does nothing now).

I'll assume this is fixed with the release of 1.1.0, which contains the patch below. Let us know if it's still happening.

Please could you test with https://gitorious.org/mypaint/mypaint/commit/b9536086559f43100a4240e06d22c86ffc850643 and see if this problem has disappeared? We're now using different grab/drag code.

You probably will need to rebind the button, as mentioned in the commit message.

This is still a bug. Users should be allowed to rebind the colour picker to whatever button they choose, modified or unmodified.

Cannot reproduce in f223db0a (Dec 28 2012) with button 3 bound as described in comment #3, using a Wacom Intuos 5.

I've just tested the default setting for picking color (shift+button1) and it works properly - so it's probably caused by my not typical use (setting button3 to activate Pick Color without any key modifier). I'll just use the default then.

I tried in 1.1.0 and it behaves the same way. My tablet that has button3 problem in MyPaint is Waltop Sirius. My tablet that doesn't have button3 problem is some Wizardpen clone or sth. All the tablets I tested have the problem though that when I click button3 to pick color the rectangle with the new color won't go away until I hover over it. (Side note: I don't like that there is no color picker dialog now in 1.1.0 that shows the circle AND HSV sliders at the same time.)

Hi, thanks for taking the time to report this bug. We could do with a few more pieces of information:

  • What makes and models of tablet did you test with, please?

Just FYI, 1.0.0 is the previous release, and we are currently working on 1.1.0. Input handling has changed greatly between then and now, and you may find the problem is now fixed.

  • If you already use the PPA, there's a 1.1.0~rc1 release waiting for you in precise/quantal/raring - Merry Christmas!

On my graphics tablet when I click button 3 (I've set it up for color picking) it starts drawing and stops only if I raise my hand high above the tablet. Also the rectangle with the color won't disapear until I hover over it (the rectangle problem happens on all graphics tablets I tested). Other applications work properly with button 3 (for example GIMP).
