Affinity photo and designer in the Desktop version.

With the color picker tool ( tool bar) only the secondary color is changed. 

If I´m painting with the brush tool and I want to select another color in the canvas, I must:

1.-  select the color picker tool (I short key) ( then the secondary color is selected in the color wheel, so the color that will pick the color picker tool   will be the secondary color)),.

2.- drag to select a new color,.

3.-select the brush tool (I shortkey) (then the primary color is focused in the color wheel and the secondary color will pick the new color). 

4.- Exchange the primary and  secondary colors .

5.-Paint now.

A lot of works.

The most logical thing would be for the color picker  tool to change the primary color directly.


In the Ipad version there is not this problem

I am doing something wrong?
