Hey, Affinity forum.

New user here.

I want to use Affinity Photo for digital painting and concept art, like one would with Photoshop.

I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to toggle on and off the Colour Chooser window. By double clicking on the color 1347094445_ScreenShot2019-03-14at11_08_00.png.13971f0ad808754bd098f86c6e30e295.pngpicker on the right, I can open up the Colour Chooser window, but I've yet to figure out a way to toggle it.

If there are any other concept artists out there, who might suggest a more efficient way to switch between colours, feel free to illuminate me.
- I'm on a hobby level, but want to get more serious with it.

Hi JMemborg and Welcome to the Forums,

At the moment you can't set a shortcut for the Colour Chooser.  This has come before on this thread and it's been logged with the Dev team, so hopefully it's something that can be added in a future update.

You can't toggle it, but you can have the Color Wheel, or Sliders, always available in the Color panel:

The highlighted icon ("hamburger menu")  allows you to choose what is displayed.

I shall keep an eye on the updates, then.
- And I shall use the Color Wheel and slider until then.
