    Sean,


    Is it possible for you to have custom colors retained in the color picker. At the moment any custom colors that you create are lost when you shut down xLights. I am aware that you can save and re use color palettes and that you can open the xml file and read the rgb values in the palette (but only for the 6 colors used at that time).

    currently to save custom colors, you need to put them in a color palette. i could put thsi retention as an enhancement request. You can have many color palettes you can load from, but only 6 at a time.

    Sean,


    Yes please, could you make this an enhancement request.
    I have used palettes, but as you say - you are locked to the 6 colors in that palette, and you are stuck if the colors you want are in different palettes.
