Hi, 

I'm really new to affinity designer and I have a problem where my color wheel only has grey, black and white colors, and I can't figure out how to switch back to being able to choose any colors. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, Robbie.

Sounds like you may be working in a Grayscale document, rather than an RGB document. If you use File > Document Setup... and look at the color tab, what Color Format do you have?

Thank you Walt,

I changed the color format from Grayscale to RGB/8 and now I'm able to switch from different colors, to shades of grey and black.

You're welcome, and thanks for confirming it's working now.
