It's too hard to copy a brick's color onto another brick

As a Roblox developer, it is currently too cumbersome to copy the color of a nearby part.

The color picker only does screen color, meaning I get useless results when really I just want to copy the part color.


Is there a reason why copying and pasting colors isn’t effective enough?


I could definitely see making a case for a tool that functions similarly to Illustrator’s eye dropper tool. Maybe have a right click menu to quick-select which properties/parameters to dupe/transfer to another part/mesh.

Is there already a plug-in that does something like this that someone could recommend?

As @VegetationBush said, select the first Part, copy the 3 numbers in the Parts Color shown in your Properties window , then paste that set of numbers into your second Part’s Color.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.


Locking parts makes this inconvenient and impossible in some cases.


It’s slow and I’ve had to do it several times in the process of making this map. It could be faster and the world could be a better place


For some niche use case like this, a plugin would be better suited than a full on feature.


It might be a better idea to allow copying properties from an instance to another.

I’ve been using this process for years, probably thousands of times and it only takes 4 simple steps.

  • Click the Part you want to copy the color from.
  • Double click the color numbers and right click ‘Copy’.
  • Click the second Part.
  • Double click the color numbers and right click 'Paste".

I’m pretty sure a Studio process (or even a plugin) wouldn’t save you as much time as you think it will.
