    Hi Jonathan
    you can do it... select a COLOR of the 2D view and then press and hold 1/2/3/4 key and click on the image under control points and it will be loaded to the correct 2D window

    Sometimes you want to go back to previously edited control points (to improve the error), and currently we have to look at the name, then search the file in the image list and drag it to a 2D view.
    It would be much more convenient to be able to drag from control points list to a 2D view directly.

    I'll have a look into colour workflow. but just dragging the image from control point list into a 2d window makes sense to me.

    I've caught myself trying to do that several times too!
    Would be a really intuitive feature.

    Wishgranter, I know it works well with your recommended system, but there are just some cases when draging would be more convenient, especially for new users...

    I can't see obvious ways to colour windows (are the borders supposed to be coloured or something? I only see the active portal blue border. I do see colour bars in the object list, but nothing that ties them to a window (pane).
    Also nothing obvious in the window settings about windows and colours and the use of 1-4 to do things with the various colours.

    So yes please - how about drag from the list as the obvious UI for newbies and then a keyboard shortcut system (colours?) for experienced users.

    Thank you

    Hey Jennifer,

    I found that quite confusing at the beginning, too.
    Especially since it could come as a standard setting.
    Activate a 2D window and press ctrl plus 1,2,3 or 4 and it will assign blue, green, purple and pink to it...

    The color is in a tiny speck at the right of the 1D-2D-3D dropdown...
