Accept shorthand hexadecimal colours like in CSS

Recommended Posts



I remember seeing this requested once or twice and I've even requested this myself 2 years ago and I thought it would've been simple to implement.


Can we please have support for shorthand 3 character "hex" colour values like in CSS that combine 2 duplicate characters into 1 - i.e white can be #FFF instead of the more verbose #FFFFFF, yellow – #FC0 instead of #FFCC00, #333 for dark grey instead of #333333 etc.


Currently, only #000 for black accidentally works, but none of the other shorthand values do.

Just bumping this. Every other graphics editor that I've ever worked in has supported shorthand hex, here's for hoping that Affinity would finally be able to do this in 2018?
