Once I select a text or background color for highlighted text, it is necessary to also clikc OK.  It would be nice if the click that selects the color completed the command

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Highlight some text in the Compose window
2.Select the "Choose color for text" button
3.Select and click on a new color

Actual Results:  
4.User is required to *ALSO* click OK.

Expected Results:  
Should have made the color change once the color was clicked.

This is an enhancement request, not a bug report.

I disagree, because I can change idea after click color and the "Cancel" button is usefull.
Anyway if you don't wanti to click "OK" button, you simple double click the color and the window is close and your choise is apply.

What you think Robert? I can close as Workforme?

cc: clarkwb for evaluetion.
As reported, this is wontfix or perhaps invalid because it would break the current advanced color picker dialogue.

But there's a valid (albeit trivial) RFE here, basic color picker from toolbar should be single-click, and only offer advanced options on request. M$ Word does this nicely in their font and background color pickers on my Word 2003 toolbar, showing a simple dropdown palette for immediate application, at the bottom end of which there's a "More colors..." button which takes you to the advanced color selection dialogue.

So this could be morphed, or re-filed as an RFE for a simplified picker.
