Color Picker Shortcut in Affinity Photo


Recommended Posts

What shortcut can I use for Color Picker ? Now , it's very troublesome. Need to select the color picker and then click the color again. And then draw a brush. Drawing brush on face is very hard without shortcut with color picker shortcut.

Seconded. Why is this not possible while in the fill tool?

Do you mean the Flood Fill Tool or something else? If that tool, are you having problems using or setting a keyboard shortcut for it or something else?

When I’m in the fill tool, I would expect holding the option key to switch to the eyedropper just like it does when you’re in the brush too. It would be especially handy.

Unfortunately, it does not work like that.

You are correct. This is intended as a suggestion to the Affinity team.

This topic is in the Questions part of the forum, as you can see at the top in the breadcrumb trail if you're viewing this in a big enough browser window:

Suggestions to the Affinity team need to be in the Feature Requests & Suggestions part of the forum, e.g.,
