Hello, I've just started using Affinity Designer for Windows but I've run into a few issues that are quite puzzling (Note I'm coming from Photoshop / Illustrator).

 

I've discovered that the eyedropper icon that appears in the fill area needs to be clicked and dragged to pick a color but is there not an easier way?

I've made a gradient and I'd like to sample a color from another object but right now I need to select the handle for the color I want to change, use the eye dropper to select the color and then click the color to apply it. Is there not simpler way to do this? (i.e. not having to click+drag AND confirm my selection).

Hi Singen,

 

Welcome the Forums :)

 

Alt is the shortcut for the colour picker, if you Alt click something on the canvas the eye dropper will pick its colour. You will still need to apply the colour however.
