Ist question:

The color values for the color picker RGB appear to be displayed two ways. One as the traditional 3 digit values and a decimal and 2 digits.  When the latter happens , how do I get it to revert the original values? I may have fat fingered the keyboard to trigger it.

2nd question:  

I have a render of the inside of a building produced in Sketchup with a Vray render. I want to change the color of the walls. Is there a way to outline the outside edges (corners and ceilings) and the inside edges (windows and doors) and use the color replacer? I am trying to speed up the process and keep the edges crisp and clean. See the orange lines on the example.

Which Affinity app are you using?

The colour picker has a dropdown menu to select different colour format options.


There are several ways to achieve question 2.

1. You can use the pen tool and create a curve, this can then have a fill and if required a stroke that goes around the edge of the curve. You can subtract curves from each other using boolean operations 

2. you could use a shape and adjust it's dimensions to fit a simple area, this can then be filled as above, a shape can also be converted to a curve to be manipulated further.

3. you could make a selection using selection tools and fill the selection area, although this wouldn't be as sharp and crisp as the former methods.
