Photo - Hot Keys For Cycling Through Swatch Collection

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys,

I want to toggle between gray scale values up and down, eg in 5% increments or down without having to click on the swatches panel.  It would allow for full screen painting/drawing while hiding the studio.  

Curious is anyone knows if this is possible.  Thank you!

Tobias

Hi Tobias.VFX :)

Unfortunately there's no hotkey to cycle between swatches, however the following may be helpful to your workflow!

If you select a Black 100% fill and draw using any tool, you can use keyboard shortcuts to adjust the Opacity of the object. The shortcuts are as follows-

1 = 10% opacity
2 = 20% opacity
3 = 30% opacity

this continues as expected, where 0 = 100%

This allows you to quickly change the level of black in your objects, however I do understand it's a little imperfect.

The only problem with this method is that it doesn't actually lay down color value so the sum product isn't the same.
