I like to set up keyboard shortcuts to reset the colours back to black and white. So I did that in all the Affinity programs in Publisher. When I start a new document default (white) is set is set to R=231 G=232 B=233 and Default (black) is set at R=35 G=31 B=32.

If I use my keyboard shortcut to make the actual Black and White (not sure why they are not by default) White will be R=255 G=255 B=255 as it should be. But Black is still as it was R=35 G=31 B=32.

If I change both colours and use the keyboard shortcut, they return to actual white and not black numbers as stated above.

Is there a way to set the colours by default to white and black and is there a way to edit the colours got via the keyboard shortcut?

On a side note, I have also set up a keyboard shortcut to get 50% grey, when I use my shortcut the colour I get is R=147 G=149 B=152 surely 50% grey is R,G,B=128?

If your default white is not 255/255/255 then you may have a color managment issue on your computer.

Can you provide a screenshot of what a newly created document looks like, before you do anything to it? And also a screenshot of your Preferences dialog with Color selected, please.

What OS do you use? And is this issue only in Publisher, or in all three applications?

I am using Windows 10 and the issue is only with Publisher (and its studio linked versions of Photo and Designer). In the stand alone versions of Photo and Designer I have no colour problems, as such. The white displayed can be a bit creamy at times but the numbers for white, black and 50% grey are all correct. I will add 3 screen shots. 1 new document with white selected, 2 same document with black selected and I hope the screen you preference panel you want.

As I hope you can see, the white document is displayed as white, but the white colour panel colour is displayed as a creamy colour, which I assume corresponds with the numbers displayed for that colour.

Thanks. Interesting, but I have no further ideas at this time. It was unclear that you were talking about the color wells rather than the document itself, so at least that clarifies the issue and may help someone come up with the answer.
