Up until a few minutes ago I always used a colour wheel to select a colour. It has now disappeared and I can't find it again. Help!

Hi @jackamus :)

It sounds as though you may have hidden the Colour Studio accidentally, please make sure this is still enabled under View>Studio>Colour.

If you have access to the Colour Studio but cannot find the 'Wheel' then it's possible you've changed the mode of the Colour Studio, you can re-access the Colour Wheel by using the Colour menu, shown below -

I hope this helps!

What are you seeing now instead of the colour wheel?

If I want the colour wheel I simply click on colour circle (or whatever it's called) in the tools panel and from the list select 'colour wheel.'


Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.

Hi All,

None of the solutions seem to work. This is what I'm being offered by AD.

That’s the Swatches panel, Jack. The one you want is the Colour panel.

The Panel Preferences menu is item D in the screenshot in the Help article.

Thanks Alfred I realised that but that is all I've got available after losing the colour wheel!

 Where do I access the Colour panel from? The manual screen shot doesn't tell me that.

I also need to figure out how I lost it in the first place!

Take a look at the View menu. There should be options for toggling the visibility of individual Studio panels, as well as an option to reset the entire Studio.

I did this to start with but there is no colour wheel option. I'm reluctant to Reset the Studio unless it is the only way.

I've got it now!  and I've no idea why I didn't get it before! The first instruction given was to open 'Colour' in 'Studio" which I did but no colour wheel. This time I did get the colour wheel.

It must be my age again!

Thanks guys.
