  1. Hi, I have found a strange behaviour when defining global colours in Designer. There are two odd behaviours shown in the uploaded video: If selecting multiple filled objects and using the 'Add current colour to palette as global colour' button in the swatches toolbar, only the first colour is added to the palette (00:00 - 00:10) Selecting multiple objects and using the contextual menu 'Add to swatches… > From fill as global' adds multiple fills to the palette but when you try and edit the second colour, the first colour is changed (00:33 - 00:43) I can replicate this on a new document and it behaves like this for 2 or more colours selected in in one go. Subsequent colour selections and additions seem to 'group' themselves together, e.g. if a palette has 2 existing colours and a further 3 colours are added. Editing colour 5 will result in colour 3 changing. I am running Designer 1.7.1 on macOS 10.14.6. Please let me know if you need any further info on this issue.

  2. These changes to colour palette management gets my vote too. Especially maintaining the PANTONE colour name when adding to another palette; 'Global Colour 1' carries virtually no meaning for managing specific PANTONE colours within a document.
  3. Hi, I think I have encountered a bug when outputting a PDF for print. Here's how my artwork is set up and (hopefully) how to replicate the bug: Create new document with a bleed value and multiple artboards Create objects that overlap bleed area File > Export and select PDF Select 'PDF (for print)' preset. Though this may occur on other presets Select an Area of one of the artboards Tick the 'Include bleed' checkbox In the 'More' section select to 'include printers marks' Export the file The resulting PDF features the single artboard artwork and all the printer's marks but no bleed. This can be remedied by selecting the 'Area' in the PDF export dialogue to be the 'Whole document'. Then the 'include bleed' setting seems to be honored. Please let me know if you need any further details to reproduce this bug. I've attached the source artwork and the resulting PDF, sans-bleed. PS Also, on a point of English, should the label "include printers marks" be "include printer's marks"? multiple artboards.afdesign Art2.pdf
