I am happy to see affinity photo 2 has the select sampled color, similar to that of photoshop. However, I am only allowed to select a single color, and not expand on the current selection by clicking on additional colors. I can choose only one color, and picking another color changes the selection entirely. I use this function daily in photoshop, so I am surprised and happy to see this function in affinity photo 2. However, the limitations are so severe, I can't use it atm and am forced to reverse course and use photoshop for this function. Please add the ability for users to add to the current selection by allowing us to click on additional colors, adding to the currently made selection, instead of creating an entirely different one. If we could press a shortcut key that would allow us to select additional colors, and add those colors to the current selection, that would be A+. A selection preview, to help us see what is currently selected, with different options such as black and white would be an additional aide to your users.
Affinity Photo version 126.96.36.1995 (Windows, from Affinity Store) Windows Version Windows 10 (Pro) version 20H2 Issue Forgive me if this bug already has been reported. As a new user coming from GIMP I wanted to bind the "Select Sampled Color" tool to "Shift+O". When using the shortcut, in a document with colored pixels, Affinity Photo just shuts down immediately. I tried changing the shortcut to other combinations as well, eg. "Shift+I", "Ctrl+Q" and "Ctrl+W", with the same result. I didn't try that many shortcut combinations, but I believe the bug affects enough keybinds to be relevant. If you have any further questions feel free to reply.
Assigning Select Sampled Color to a shortcut and attempting to use it causes a crash every time. Crash happened in last 1.8 version and persists in 1.9. Tested on 2 different computers: Ryzen 5 3600, 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Windows 10 Ryzen 7 3750H, 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, Windows 10
