Normally, I like to use the Color Wheel inside the Color Panel, but when I apply a mask, it will switch the color panel to greyscale sliders. I can reset the Color Panel, but then if I select the mask layer again (after selecting a different layer), the greyscale sliders will come back.

Sometimes it stays grayscale even after switching away from mask. Usually if you jump between several masks/adjustments - then after switching to pixel layer color type stays Grayscale without reverting to initial one

That's true, so this could be considered a "feature" if the color panel switched to greyscale sliders if you have a mask selected, and then jumped back to your default color choice when you are on a different layer. But at this point, it keeps the greyscale sliders even after you switch to another type of layer.

Thanks, Gabe. I came here looking for a solution to this.  I use the wheel mainly because I can quickly go white or black without having to go to the greyscale, for masks, but also have the wheel overall in a hue I'm using, too.  Works for what I'm doing, but after 1.8... poof, it's greyscale again.  

 

That said, 1.8 is awesome.  Thanks!
