thanks for joining the discussion and for providing the mockup :)

First, I like that you've not given up on the color wheel. I think it's
a nice way of selecting a color. The problems is, that it takes quite
some space, so the idea to use the complete window makes a sense here.

The problem is, that it seems a bit inconsistent with the rest because
most of the time simple dialogs are used. For me personally this is not
a big problem, but it might be for others.

I think the buttons on the left would not be needed as this dialog would
already be the "Advanced" view of the simple color chooser. If you
remove those and save some space on the right, maybe you could fit it
into a normal dialog?

It will probably get a bit difficult to find the right "Advanced"
dialog. But it's great that we already have choice :)

What do other think about this mockup?
