...Please allow the '#' symbol to get pasted into the color picker hex input box. Many external color picker tools, such as, the Mac DigitalColor Meter, automatically add the '#' when copying the hex code and Photoshop won't let me paste it into the input box unless I first paste it to the document workspace as text, remove the '#', recopy and then paste it into the color picker hex input box. This would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. - Jon Nutting -

In Photoshop CS6, you can paste hex colors including one preceded with # symbol as well as 3 digit hex shortcuts (e.g. '123')
