Auto switch to B&W palette for masks (like every other app)

Recommended Posts

When selecting and editing a mask the colour options are not B&W. It switches to Greyscale of the colours I currently have selected. 

Is there anyway to set this to switch to a seperate mask only palette like every other app out there?  

When I edit a mask I don't want to use the greyscale value of the colour I was painting with..... I can't think of any situation where that's beneficial. It's super confusing.

When I change the value to paint the mask I now lose the colour I was painting with. Yes, I can go over to the swatch to find the previous colour, but whats the point of that workflow, it's an extra step that breaks the flow.

When I work on masks (what I often do) I always press "D" on the keyboard to set the fore- and backgroundcolor to default (which is black and white). This shortcut isn't set by default, you need to assign it in the preferences. In addition I use the "X"-Key to toggle between hide and reveal.

Where is this located. The keyboad preferances is created in such a way that you have to know exactly where the tool is located between 30 sub menus..... zzzz

D is not set as the default for that on Windows, unfortunately. But I think they've logged that as a bug.
