Color Picker Hotkey

I really like Pyxel Edit and use it all the time, but the color picker hotkey as alt is super annoying, I would love to be able to change it to a different key, and it's honestly my only big issue with this program. 


  • Hi rbelmont000

    That's quite odd, since alt is the hotkey that most painting programs and especially photoshop like to use for picking up a color.

    No worries though, you can just bind the shortcut to a different key. 
    Go to this folder:
    Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\PyxelEdit\Settings
    You can enter %appdata% as the path in windows explorer to find the Roaming folder quickly.
    Mac: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/PyxelEdit/Settings

    Open keybindings.json and insert this:
      "keyString": "C", // Key to bind to
      "shitKey": false, // Hold down shift?
      "action": "quick_pick_color_action" // Color picker action

    Save the file and open PyxelEdit.
    You can find all the actions available in the Readme file, located in the same folder :)

  • Oh man, thats going to help me out a lot. I didn't think there were custom keybindings at all. Thanks a lot for the help!
