Description

If I have color picker set to area sample, and go to tonecurve and hit dropper there, it always changes colorpicker to point sample. Perhaps there is a reason for this, but I always find myself going over to the left again to set sample to area again.

Tone curve may generally be used to change some specific tonality, i.e. point on the curve.
And point colorpicker does pick just one point, while area colorpicker picks area, and it
kind-of seems useless for tonecurve.
At least in my opinion.

but I always find myself going over to the left again to set sample to area again.

I have learned something new today :)

Ah. What I do kind of frequently is select a range over which I know I want to change something; e.g. clouds in sky where I know I want more contrast. Then, put points around either end of the range and fiddle with those.

seconded. This is my my most frequent use case. Makes local contrast changes so much easier.
