In QGIS is it possible to change the default Colours shown when changing a Layers Style?
When changing the colour of a feature in QGIS, the Select Colour window provides options to choose from a Palette of:
- Recent Colours
- Standard Colours
- Project Colours
- New Layer Colours
To configure these colours palettes, choose Settings > Options > on the Colours Tab > and the Colour Schemes section you can now choose to edit the order that the colours are shown.
By simply dragging and dropping the colours you can re-order them.
Now when you return to the Layers Properties and choose to change the Colour, the Select Colour > Standard Colour options will be re-ordered as you defined them.
Back in the settings you can use the PLUS icon to create your own Colour scheme. Adjusting the colour panels, or pasting in a HEX Value of your choice you can create any colour you require.
Then drag the new Colour to the top of the Standard Colours list.
It will now be the first colour option when you come to change colours again.
You can also create your own named Palettes …
And use the PLUS icon to add the Colours that you wish to see on your new Palette.
Once created you now have the new Palette to choose from when editing your layers style.
