Gimp 2.10.x vs GIMP 2.99.x drag n'drop foreground/background color


In Gimp 2.10 I always grab the color directly from the foreground/background color icon and drop it directly on a layer or a mask or a channel and it works like a charm.

In Gimp 2.99 I cannot do it anymore…
Still, I can drag n drop the color from the “change foreground/background color” windowscreenshot_20210127-122645
But not anymore directly from the tool foreground/background

Does it mean that in the future Gimp 3 we will not be able to do it anymore?

I’m on Ubuntu-MATE 20.04 Gimp PPA + AppImage for the stable and AppImage for the development version

2.99 is an development version with a lot of bugs. You should report this bug in the bug tracker to inform the developers.

I did report it
GIMP 2.99 can't drag n drop directly from the foreground-background tool (#6354) · Issues · GNOME / GIMP · GitLab as you suggested
thanks for your answer

This appears to be working again, likely due to the changes done to fix the similar issue Drag'n dropping image on Canvas or toolbox doesn't work on Wayland (#7373) · Issues · GNOME / GIMP · GitLab
