Hi,

Perhaps a button to Reset the selection of foreground and background-Color to Black&White could be useful?

BTW:
is the noise-Option "hidden" intentionally?

This is not a satisfying answer, sorry.
sounds like: "sorry, that´s a feature company "A..." has a copyright on."

The question is not if there is any shortcut to reset colour panel to b&w. It is that is there any command to reset it to b&w? So far I have not found one.

Maybe opacity/noise symbol should be a double too: 342665492_Screenshot629_optimized.jpg.f1fc0ddb7346ffd5f727947dc44b1079.jpg

If you read what MEB (and Albert) said in Psenda's post above, you'll see that it's very simple to add a keyboard shortcut to reset to black and white.

(I think the double opacity/noise is a very good idea!)

I then presume only way to reset to b&w is to assign a shortcut to it. Funny, usually shortcuts are based to actual menu commands but this has no longcut version :-)

@Fixx  I fully agree.
Thats not Shortcut but a "work-around".

"Thats not Shortcut but a "work-around"."

Setting up your own keyboard shortcut is not a work-around. It's just customising the program to suit yourself. What more do you want other than hitting one key! (As I remember there's the same keyboard shortcut in Photoshop.) Surely it's just as easy as hitting a button on screen.

Good point. A menu command would seem obvious! 

 

At the end of the day Affinity IS NOT just a cheap version of Photoshop, some things are different. It doesn't have exactly the same commands, buttons, shortcuts etc, but it's quick and easy enough to set up keyboard shortcuts to do most things if you want to.

Except for people using a stylus and drawing tablet, for whom it may be easier to hit a button on the screen than to switch to the keyboard to press a key.
