I already shared this request (but I can't find it in the forum anymore) and I remember @Alex accepted it.

Is it possible to memorize a special color in the GUI side bar when writing a post?

As you can see below, there is a blue color.
It is NOT part of my brand colors.
I put this color while I'm producing/writing a post or page to remind myself I will need to come back here to make this or that action.

It could be:
  • To insert an image, an audio or specific media to illustrate my local purpose
  • To add a quotes to be found on the net or elsewhere
  • To remind myself I'm not happy with te way I wrote this blue background-colored paragraph
  • To add a social proof
  • Etc.
I do this every time I'm writing a post. The issue is that I need to re-select the color every time and I have no easy way to pick the very same color. Could we automate this or add da more user-friendly way for such a useful feature?

I remember this suggestion and that we agreed to adding a "Tertiary" and "Action" color to allow for more flexible color schemes.

If what we talked about in the following thread is satisfactory to your request here, I will merge these threads and move them to the Wishlist forum for better tracking.

That's exactly the thread I tried searching before posting my message above.
This is a feature I miss 50 times a day at the minimum. Any chance to see it released soon?

Damn, I just noticed a pop saying Action on a blue color:

Exactly what I suggested and needed! Such a great improvement! Sometime, even minor features & updates create giant (productivity) steps.

After using this, I can already this I'm out of colors. I would need another row of extra 3 colors on this:

Just have enough colors available to work with.
Background color is... background.
Primary is the primary color for my brand and I use it to hilight some text or other in this primary color.
Same for secondary and tertiary.

Accent colors is to give some "Aceent"/highlight to important text, for example:

I am using this green colors, which is part of my logo for other section:

So there is not enough room for me to add that green color without killing the Blue Action color which I REALLY use so often when drafting my articles. If you remember well, I was the one who asked for that feature for that very same reason.

Hope that makes it clear.

The green seems like it could fit as the Secondary or Tertiary color.
