Editing Shortcut: Switching between Color 1/Color 2

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble locating where the "Switch between Stroke/Fill (or Color 1/Color 2) color selectors (Color and Swatches panels)"/"Toggle Fill Content" in the Keyboard Shortcuts.

The original shortcut is assigned to X. I want to assign it to a different key, but a warning triangle shows next to the shortcut, indicating X is already being used for "Toggle Fill Content", but I cannot find where this shortcut initially is located.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

Try looking in the Miscellaneous section of your keyboard shortcuts.

Hi, thanks for the reply!

I can't find the shortcut in the Miscellaneous section of the keyboard shortcuts in Affinity Photo (but it is located in the Miscellaneous section in Affinity Designer).

Edit: Closer reading of your comment shows that I didn't understand your concern.  I too cannot find Toggle Fill Content but it seems to work as just X.


end Edit.

It is there in Mac OS and Photo 1.8.3 It is called Swap Line and Fill. The Miscellaneous item is on the very bottom of the list, and it is set to Shift + X here.

Affinity Designer 2.3.1 | Affinity Photo 2.3.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.3.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
