I use Combo Palettes in all slots for the Color Palette, usually ordered according to the Spectrum (ROYGBIV, Neutral, Unusual color combos, etc.). While these are stored in files, I often make minor changes to one or more of the 4 colors in the Color Adjust Panel, custom to the current palette needs. It would be nice to have one or two extra lines to save the most recently used 4-color combos in the Color Adjust Panel, for temporary 4-color combos that have evolved with the painting. Why? Sometime I try out new colors, but it does not work well, and I want to go back to the previous set that was tweaked, and start over with my color choices. I don't always want to save then to a line in the Color Palette panel, since they are usually set to nice starting bases. 

Please do let me know if there is a more convenient feature in TB for remembering temporary 4-color sets, of which I may be unaware. 

Thanx,

Quasihedron

Hi Quasihedron,
   There are 8 pallets available for use.
Could you not just set one for your edited colors?

Hi Ken,
    I believe that in past Forums;
This may have been requested.
I know for myself I often have use a Screenshot.
For this purpose as well as to save the colors in;
The Brush Control Panel when Hue,Sat, an Lum
Have been changed, Only a screenshot can be
used to manually enter color by use of the color picker.
Could we double the number of Palettes.
That way one could easily create a alternative Palette.
That directly correspond to the above Palette.

There isn't a automatic 4 color history option, but there are "Combo" palettes and work on four colors at a time. See image below.

I already have all 8 of the Color Palette pages and slots filled with Combo Palettes. These are my base set. P1 is a collection of analogous Red 4-color selections. P2 is filled with analogous Orange 4-color selections, etc. I have filled these using a right-click. I seldom want to change these.

What I need are a couple of temporary places to save the 4-color-combos. See a panel mockup in the following annotated image:

Hi Surov, Palettes.jpg 
    I could not agree whit you more about;
Hitting Ctrl. button {bad habit of resting
hand on keyboard} to see the whole combo
bank turn a Sea of Greens.
It was years ago this funtion was to be Ctrl>Click. 
As well I do at times get a wrong entry when stylus
passes to close to Palette.

Hi Ken,
   I believe the point that Quasihedron was trying to make is;
That He uses all his palettes at any one time. My solution to
saving many color combos is to make a Screenshot.
Or could we double the Palettes?

I smoked for 30 years, then stopped... and I feel good
Sometimes bad habits should be abandoned [smile]

In any case, the mentioned modification keys are superfluous.
And Ctrl+Click -- see GIF-animation (sequence of clicks)

Hi Surov,
  I'm sure that at one point Right Click Entry was abandoned.
I clearly remember asking why Right Click no longer worked.
It was your reply that set me straight whit Shift.
When did this Right Click Action reappear?
At any rate Ctrl Bug must be corrected.

Thanks for all of the information! I will take a deeper look over the next couple of days.

Hi Quasihedron,

Perhaps a little known power users trick is to use a brush as a color combo. Take a look at this animated GIF to see how you can setup brushes in your shortcuts panel as temporary combos.

If this is playing back too fast take a look at the MP4 version for correct speed and better resolution.

Note:
- Right click to pull up the brush menu to select the Edit Brush Options. 
- Shift click to copy a shortcut brush to another slot.
- This is a cool solution because the adjusted colors are automatically saved into the combo brush. 
- Also cool is that when you select a combo brush the previous brush settings are remembered and used as your painting brush.
- Of course this extends to having full ArtSets of combos.

I must admit I am not quite the power user yet. Perhaps one day! LOL 😃

The pros are that one can really make subtle changes to the 4-color combo and keep them for a time till the Brush Shortcuts are overwritten. It does mean needing to keep on of the P# lists clear. I also admit to being a datahoarder! 

I tried out that procedure. It works well. I must admit I need to quit clickon on the combo palette line or I destroy my temporary colors. Old habits die hard! LOL 😃

When one saves the presets for this, after re-reading the documentation once more, may I assume that when saving a preset, ALL of the existing options, parameters, brushes, pallets, shortcuts, panels, etc. are all recorded at the same time into the [user-chosen-name].pre file? 

Thanks!

Yes, when an ArtSet is saved all all the brushes in that ArtSet are saved. The shortcuts is just another ArtSet. 😉
