Issue description
While creating a screenshot of the Toolbox with German captions, I've noticed the following issue: The outline color of the toolbox in file Tool Box-0.63.06.png (Wiki) has a html code of f27d2c according to The GIMP. If you copy and paste that value into the Colors dialog and close it, it will show f17d2b when you reopen the dialog.
Steps to reproduce this issue
Nothing entered.

I think it's a different issue than the one you linked to. While I also "see the colors being vastly different from the one you intended" (quote: tushantin), that already happens after I press Enter in the HTML code text field. The actual change in the hex code happens after I close the dialog or on re-entering it and is minimal. That looks like a rounding issue or something related.

Maybe it would be a good idea to open up another bug report to get that other issue sorted out, too. I'd definitely welcome it, if you could just copy and paste color codes from The GIMP, Inkscape, etc. into Synfig Studio.

The HTML code you type into the color dialog box might be altered by the browser or the page you're visiting. Some websites may have programs that change the HTML code pou automatically to adhere to their own stylistic or formatting guidelines.

In the realm of design and aesthetics, the color dialog plays a pivotal role, serving as a dynamic conversation between hues, shades, and tones. Whether in graphic design, web development, or interior decor, the color dialog determines the visual impact and emotional resonance of a space or product. Beyond the artistic perspective, color dialogs are increasingly influencing industries like food and beverages, emphasizing the significance of visual appeal in consumer choices. One notable trend is the incorporation of Natural Colors for beverages, highlighting a shift towards using organic and naturally derived colors to enhance the visual allure of drinks, aligning with the growing preference for healthier and more authentic options.
