Hello, 

I was messing around with Affinity Photo the other night and accidentally found a feature that I cannot find now. I was in the Color window and I believe I double clicked on the selected color and a window popped up PREVIEWING color chords. It could have just been showing me near shades to the selected color, but i definitely remember seeing "+1" and "+2" labeling corresponding shades with the actual color displayed. I was able to replicate popping this window up a couple of times before I shut down for the night, but since then have not been able to get this to happen again. I have no problem making color chords the normal way, populating in the swatch panel, but Id rather being able to see the colors before committing swatch space. 

So did I stumble across a little know feature, or did I fall into the matrix somehow? 

Thank you for your time, 

Dustin

Sounds like you were looking at the Colour Chooser when working with a RGBA/32 document. The numbered swatches are for applying exposure adjustment to the colour. The colour controls when in RGBA/32 mode have been partly broken for years, so expect initial confusion.

You were correct Anon2. I was in RGB/32(HDR) with one document which allowed this feature, another document was in RGB/16 which did not allow the same thing to happen.
