    The ColorField in Unity allows to Copy & Paste its values:

    However, "Paste" only works with Colors you copied from inside Unity.

    Lately I'm working on UI and I need to color pick colors from a mockup made in another application. In order to transfer these colors to Unity, I copied their hexadecimal color values as strings to the Windows clipboard, then click on the ColorField in Unity to open it and then paste the color there:

    While this works, the workflow is one step too much for my taste.

    Please allow to paste hexadecimal color values (string) from external applications to the ColorField in Unity through its context-menu.
