I am having a problem with setting a default swatches palette. I don't think it is an AP problem I think it is probably my understanding of how defaults work ....... When AP opens it always opens withe Black and White swatches displayed. I have my own swatches palette that I use that combines Back and White and Colours in a single palette. I have imported this as an application palette. So can I get AP to open with this in place instead of my having to select it from the dropdown every time? I have tried setting this palette as default for RGB8 which what I work in most of the time. This changes nothing - presumably because until an RGB8 document is open it has nothing to which it can default. But if I open a new RGB8 document I still have to manually select the palette. So what does "default" mean here and how should I implement it? Apologies if I am being seriously dumb ............ :unsure:
I'm trying to set global colors, based on Affinity Designer Workbook page 332. I can create the custom palette based on items on the artboard, but if I click on the name of the palette in the Swatches panel (step 4), I get a crash every time. I've repeated this seven times over two days, including relaunching, creating brand new documents, etc., but I get the same crash every time. It is very consistent. (Crash report attached.)

It would be great in the Swatches Palette to be able to: 1. Select / deselect contiguous swatches using Shift + Click 2. Select / deselect multiple individual swatches using Cmd + Click 3. Add Selected Unused Swatches command to the Swatches palette hamburger menu. This, followed by the Delete Fill command, is all that's missing for easily cleaning up files and getting them ready for pre-press, i.e., deleting unused elements (in this case a Document colors / swatches) for pre-flighting and outputting. 4. Add the ability to group swatches into folders to the Swatches palette hamburger menu. This is really useful for collaborating and sharing files and keeping things organized as well. Tanks for all you do!
In Affinity Designer the swatches palette has a "recent" area that shows recently used colours. The odd thing for me is it will show many different swatches of the same colour. Why is this? This seems confusing and redundant to me. I would think that colours of the same value should only appear once in the "recent" colours. Is this the way it was planned or has something gone awry? I wasn't sure whether to post this in the "Feature Requests" or the "Questions" but because I'm not sure about the reasoning behind the current behaviour I posted it here.
