When choosing the default OSX Color Picker, enable live updating of shape or text color just like it happens with Photoshop color picker.

We can't - we don't get live values from the Apple picker, only a final value once you OK their dialog.

I've seen other apps that do though - not only Apple's own but Pixelmator does too.

Hmm, I haven't seen an API that would do that. Guess we'll take another look.

Even when using Adobe's color picker in Photoshop CS6, shapes do not get live updating like they did in previous versions until you hit OK. Can that be changed?
