Hi @Bereklauw,

 

You can set u Keyboard shortcut to do this. Go to Edit>Prefences>Keyboard Shortcuts>Photo dropdown> Miscellaneous Dropdown>Set fill to black and white. You can also switch between BG and FG by pressing X. 

 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Ok! A workaround, but it works! Thanks for the tip. 

 

If you want black and white with one click, you could click on the Swatches panel.

 

Black, white and transparency permanently on display.

That isn't the default on my version of Affinity Photo (UK English on English Windows 10). X is the default shortcut for 'Toggle Fill Context', and Shift+X is the default shortcut for 'Swap Line and Fill', but there is no default shortcut for 'Set Fill to Black and White'.

I've been using this until now. But it's not "one click". I'm looking for another solution to this. But thanks!

The Alt-X is not set in my version. So I picked this one. "X" "CMD+X" and "Shift-X" have alle been taken. So this is a viable workaround.

Assign the shortcut ALT+X as advised above

Then set a spare mouse or pen button to replay the same keystrokes

Which will give you a "one click" solution

Works just fine on my pen
