Picking colours - usability issue with a simple fix...


Recommended Posts

Why, in the the name of all that is holy, can Affinity products not 'remember' how I'm choosing colours?  For example, I want to change the stroke colour of some objects... I click the grey rectangle in the rectangle. The colour spectrum shown appears... I choose 'swatches' because that's what I want EVERY TIME.  I choose a colour... great.  I select another object, repeat, you'd think Affinity would automatically display swatches because that's the last option I used, but NO.  

You'd think there might be a user preference to specify the default view, but NO.

Every single time I have to click about to get to the colours I'm using all the time. EVERY TIME... if there were a tax on clicks I'd be broke. Please fix this.

Hi @Dampsquid

Your post reminded me of this, which we have been annoyed about:

Our experience is that settings are good, but they are also overlooked by many, so our preference is that one's choices are remembered throughout the programme session. In addition, settings can of course complement this.

Have a great weekend
