Description z-uo 2017-02-16 16:18:58 UTC
I tend to change the color of my layer (in the layer widget) without doing it on purpose
I'm not sure it's a real bug or just me but its annoying so...

Whith my tablet, when I make a right clic on a layer(in the layer widget), if I release immediately I tend to release on the "properties" button which activate the button.
So I keep the right clic down and choose the button I want, let say "flatten layer" so I cross the color button line which activate a color...
And it change the color of my layer.

So maybe the menu appear too close to the right clic. (I dont have the probleme whith other software like gimp, I think there is a little gap between the right clic and the menu)
Or maybe the color should be choose only whith a clic on it.

Yes, color changes on mouse over which is hard to avoid when you navigate to other menu options.
Please change to click-select.

It is actually click select, to make the popup stay open with the stylus, one needs to keep the right-click down, and that means that hover = click. I'm not sure we can actually do a lot about this, though I'd love to see some patches.

Ah, I see.
Pehaps change on release rather than click?
Not that I can code that myself and I know you coders all have plenty on your hands already...

I think this is a kde/plasma bug, I do experience this problem but is not unique to krita, I'm on a Plasma desktop and many other menus select themselves too in different programs while using the stylus. The mouse doesn't present this problem.
