color picker isn't consistent with other software.
Please allow users to change color picker to Photoshop color picker. Indesign is great except for the nuisance of having a horrible UI for the color picker. I make all my colors in photoshop copy the code then paste it into Indesign.
Starting Id 16.0 we introduced HSB in Color Picker.
Does that resolve inconsistency issue for you?
Please tell us in the comments.

Yes I find it frustrating as well.
Yes!! the color picker in InDesign is incredibly hard to use. Feels like I can't even access some colors. Why is it different than the one that Illustrator uses?

The color picker in InDesign is AWFUL!!! Please use the same color picker from Photoshop and literally every other software you have.
Yeah the indesign one is dog **** to put it politely
SERIOUSLY, get it together Adobe.

YES! Christ... come on Adobe this is ridiculous. I have to use two programs to choose a damn color! WTH how can this still be a problem, it's like a car with a square steering wheel.
YES! Thank you. Please change asap
I strongly agree, using colors in InDesign isn't a pleasant experience if you are working already with Photoshop or illustrator.

As a long time photoshop and illustrator user I can't handle the InDesign color picker. For a while I would get my color code from Photoshop/illustrator then copy that color into InDesign but it's become such a pain I've stopped using InDesign all together. At least give us an option for a color swatch that matches the other designs. It's literally causing my to give up using the app completely!
