How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●○○○ — Not much; I'm just letting you know about it.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. This is minor but, could the Slider Theme Handle Border be an actual border rather than a solid? I was trying to make the Track and the slider Handle color transparent leaving just have the handle border itself visible.
  2. The intent was to have a TicTac shaped loop slide over a colour gradient; what was visible in the transparent area of the loop was the colour being selected. (See attached image)

Have you been able to reproduce the problem?: 

●●● — Yes, the problem occurs consistently when I follow the steps above

Have you found a workaround?: 

There are other ways to design the interface it just won't look as slick. :)

Unfortunately it's one of those things that sounds simple but would actually require a lot of development work to properly fix — work that is part of feature requests that are not yet scheduled (custom themes or vector paths).

We'll leave this bug report open, since the way the slider handle is drawn has a surprising limitation, but we don't anticipate making any special effort to fix it until one or the other of those feature requests is implemented.

For the particular case of your hue slider, perhaps as a workaround you could calculate the Handle Color based on the slider position.
