PPaint, large image and toolbox

I'm having a bit of an issue with PPAint. I loaded up a sprite sheet and it's a fair size which makes the toolbox/palette and the menu disappear.

Now I can get to the menu ok by right clicking the top of the screen, but I can only access the toolbox/palette via the key commands. I have the manual for Dpaint IV and it says pushing F10 hides and brings up the toolbox but it does nothing.

The thing is, with the key commands I can't tell which colour I've selected for the foreground and background.

The command for choosing Frg and Bkg colours is a bit vague [,] for foreground and {,} for background, but I need to choose specific colours from the toolbox palette which aren't on the screen so I don't know how I'm supposed to be able to do that if I can't see nor interact with the toolbox.

Is there a way to permanently have the menu and the toolbox on the screen and just use cursor key scrolling to get around large images? It would make life so much easier.
