.RTF text standard in CMYK (Publisher) in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows) Posted November 8 This was good to know. As @walt.farrell pointed, it seems to be related to styles: .docx based imports include styles and the text will get its K100 definition with the style. RTF text will have [No style] and will be actually in RGB color mode (RGB 0, 0, 0), and would be converted to four-color black at export time if not manually changed. So if the RTF imported text is not formatted with styles that already have K100 as the text color, the first thing to do with the RTF imported text would be select it all and assign it K100 value. It is a bit confusing that BlacksGrays palette in Publisher is RGB based so this palette should never be used in CMYK based jobs unless one specifically wants to have rich black tones.
