Restrict number of colors in palette


Is there a way to restrict the number of colors in the palette? I use Pro Motion to make C64-graphics, and therefore I only need 16 colors available. Is it possible to remove the remaining 240 black color-slots, so its easier to scroll through the palette with ctrl+mouseheel?


Hi @Pindarm

not possible, but I will add a new mouse wheel mode “Cycle Gradient Colors” which will do what you need. You can then have all C64 colors in a gradient (even ordered by your choice) and can cycle through them.
Would this help?


Yeah, that sounds like a nice workaround. Looking forward to test it.
Thank you, Jan.


Ah, so I would actually love to have the ability to control the number of visible color slots in the palette window. For those artists using a very limited palette, there is an awful lot of wasted space. I myself do a lot of work in the original Amiga ECS/OCS palette, which generally is just 32 color slots (excluding EHB mode). That’s 224 empty color slots taking up screen space. As I work on a laptop, every bit of screen space counts.

Would it be possible to add this as a feature request Jan?
