Question: Is it possible to let AP show the colors of the color panel according to the color space of the document instead of the color space the monitor is in? Background of the question: I am using AP 1.10 on Windows with two monitors. Monitor 1 is calibrated to D65 sRGB color space but with 2.2 gamma (internal hardware calibration). Monitor 2 is calibrated to D65 native color space also 2.2 gamma (software calibration). If I put a view of the same image on monitor 1 and 2 each they look nearly identical. The document is in sRGB color space. So, even though monitor 2 is in native wide gamut, AP takes care that the document is shown in sRGB representation. This is fine for me. But, on monitor 2 the color panel does not respect this. There the colors are shown in the wide gamut color space. Reason why it is relevant for me. Monitor 2 is the pen display to draw on the images. But even though I see the image in the desired output color space (sRGB) I can't pick colors accordingly. This makes choosing a color more or less guesswork. Unfortunately I can't just set monitor 2 to sRGB color space because of limitations of how this is implented in the hardware.
The last 1.8.2 update has broken the use of tab to navigate the values of the color panel. You can use the tab to go to next field, but as soon as you type a new value, tab stops working until you manually click into a field again. This worked fine in 1.8.0 and 1.8.1. It seems that tabbing after typing the value deselects the current field instead of selecting the next one. Setting cmyk values is now a slow tab-type-click process. Other tab-navigable panels work fine (for example, transform panels) By the way, this is a good chance to remind you we'd love to have tab-navigation in all panels, not only The Chosen Ones. 😉
I loaded a black and white jpg line drawing into Affinity Photo with the intention of coloring it. However, the color panel is stuck on grey scale. How do I get a full color spectrum in the color panel with this B&W jpg?
I've already posted this in Questions & Feedback but since it doesn't seem to be implemented yet, I'm adding it as a request. For example, I have a square which only has a fill color (no stroke). If I click on another shape, let's say a circle and I'm changing it's stroke color, when I click back on the square, I would like the color panel to auto-select the fill attribute (since it's the only attribute the square has) instead of keeping the stroke attribute selected (from the previous change). My logic is that I would want to change it's color rather than add a stroke to it. This way would eliminate an unnecessary extra click and speed you up when you'd have to repeat the action several times.
