"Copy" color should not copy css string but color code instead

Currently when using the editor mode and copying colors always copies the css background color string but the color code should be added to clipboard instead.

Reprodocue:

  1. Select element
  2. Goto “Inspect” > “Colors”
  3. “Copy” color
  4. “background: color-code;” is added to clipboard

In my opinion (as a developer) this is pretty anoying because the styles in figma dont apply to real world layouts and effects and you dont always want it as “background” style.
