Show HEX value in swatch panel
I often need to copy HEX values from illustrator swatches into other applications. My workflow would be accelerated if there was a text field showing the HEX value like in the color picker window.
Right now I need to apply the swatch to an object and copy the HEX value from the color picker window.

Can't believe it's not just a "hidden" feature obscured by some arcane setting...
Universal support of HEX values needs to happen on all color pickers everywhere!

I came here, thinking someone was going to tell me how to be able to use HEX value in Illustrator. Now I'm disappointed, because I realize it's still not a feature in the 2021 update.

Literally make or break feature. Most of my job is policing artwork for brand colors.
Yes, please make HEX values ubiquitous - so much easier to work with 1 number for a color rather than 4 for CMYK or 3 for RGB, etc.
Yes please, it's 2020.
Agreed. This would be very helpful to my workflow as a print designer, web designer and illustrator. I need to be able to make global changes to existing, in-use color (global process) swatches. I need to make those changes with HEX#.
