Newbie to the forum but somewhat experienced in post processing.  Using the gradient tool in Affinity Photo to create masks and blends and each time I use the tool it resets the end colors to white and mid-tone grey.  I can reset the colors to what I want (white, black) with no problem but would like to know if there is a way to have my settings recorded so I would not have to reset the colors each time I use the tool.  Hopefully I am missing something simple ?

As far as I am aware there is no way to set a gradient created as the default so it will always default to white and grey. You can have the swatches window open and with the gradient tool selected choose a gradient so in your case create a gradient and save it to a swatch collection and then you have the option to fast select any gradient you want.

Thanks for the help and the workaround.  Not quite what I was hoping for but it will cut down on the steps I was using.  Given that I am trying to use the gradient as a mask, having an end point of black would be preferred.
