VERY Annoying right click color picking swaps color selection to secondary color


Recommended Posts

I did not really know how to say this or WHERE to put this. So I put a screenshot in the attachements.

In words. If I am currently working with the primary color. It happens at times that I want to simply choose a secondary color from the my image and continue drawing with my primary color. THEN, I simply want to choose a color from below to change my primary color but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It switches myt secondary color I just picked. That is totally annoying.

 

Reproduce:

1. Click on primary color box

2. Choose the color picker

3. Choose a color in your image using the RIGHT mouse button

4. LEFT click any color below

BOOM - Secondary color changed to your picked color instead of the Primary one.

Right-clicking sets the Secondary color. REF: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ColorPicker.html

Activate the color picker and right click on your image to install the shade as the Secondary color. No need to use the Primary/Secondary selector or the color swatch.

 

You don't need to have the color picker tool active when you select a shade from the color swatch. And vice versa.

 

Re-reading you post, you might also find the Keyboard shortcut C useful. It switches between the Primary and Secondary color slots. REF: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/ColorsWindow.html#6

There are a few weirdisms in the Colors window that I've been planning to address for the 4.2.15 update (right after 4.2.14, in other words). I've added your notes to the bug so I can use them while investigating. Thanks!

I agree. This is very confusing.
