Colour Palate States and Eye Dropper

Recommended Posts

Dearest Affinity Team,


been using and loving Affinity so thanks heaps for that.


One thing I feel could be improved is the way the colour palate states are displayed. When I work with swatches of colours, it would be great if, when selecting a colour, the colour palate always showed the last used state. For example, if I have used the swatches palate for selecting a colour, the next time I select a colour, the swatches palate is the one that is displayed. Or if I have selected a colour using the HSL colour picker, then the next time I select a colour, the HSL colour picker displays.


Currently, I seem to be having to choose the swatches palate every time I choose a colour for a line or fill because the colour palate seems to default to one of the colour pickers.


The eye dropper works well, but I think you could save people time by activating the colour upon selecting the colour. So rather than selecting a colour with the eye dropper and then activating it, selecting the colour also activates the colour. That's the convention for eye dropper UX.


Thanks for everything,
