Options for the Eyedropper Tool should be available even in modal states

The options for the Eyedropper Tool (sample: current layer / all layers) are unavailable when you need them most:

If you want to select a color for a Color Fill Layer or a Text Layer, you can't change this option. If it's set to 'current layer', the Eyedropper tool is useless and it's pretty annoying:

You have to close the color picker dialog, select the Eyedropper Tool, change the option to 'all layers' and then return to the Color Fill Layer to be able to use the Eyedropper.

Not sure if it's a bug. I think so?
Would be nice if this option is available at all times.

Not a bug, but something that has to be explicitly enabled and added.
