    That's right Petar - but instead of endless discussions, an immediate reference to translate.google would have been much more helpful ... as you can easily see, this was the first post of 24e - and he / she maybe was unaware that this is predominantly a English forum ... Cheers Joerg
  2. I noticed something quite unpleasant in all 3 apps checking out the final Publisher … Color management does not seem to work properly: While all Adobe apps display 100% cyan correctly on my hardware calibrated monitor (EIZO CG 277), this is clearly not the case with Affinity apps. Since we already have to pay attention to correct coloring in the layout phase, this would almost be a knock-out criterion for us if color (especially in the pre-press area of important boundary areas) could not be displayed correctly in the Affinity apps. I have of course checked the color settings in the Affinity Apps - everything quite the same like the Adobe Apps with cmyk ISOcoated v2 ... Please find attached a ZIP with a screenshot - InDesign and Publisher side by side (PNG incl. Monitor color profile - if the PNG is opened on a properly calibrated monitor, for example in Photoshop, the difference is clearly visible). Hopefully, I overlooked something ...

    Color management not working properly?

    I found out what the dithering is - InDesign was in layout mode not in preview mode - so the dithering is nothing else then the lines of the (color) container (the cross in the middle). Pleas find attached a new ZIP with both: original monitor profile PNG and a profile converted into ISOcoated v2 JPG. It is what it is - the Affinity Apps are out of gammut (Mac only?) macOS 10.14.5 (Mojave), EIZO CG277 hardware calibrated (99% AdobeRGB, 100% ISOcoated v2) AffinityOutOfGammut.zip

    Color management not working properly?

    Yes — The original png with the original Monitor Profile is PNG ... for showing it with a cmyk Profile it has to be Profile converted and saved as cmyk JPG What ever I tried – the Affinity Apps are out of gammut and not able to show 100% cyan...

    Color management not working properly?

    @haakoo Of course I could write a PDF x4 every time for review and check it in Acrobat DC - but I do not think that's very efficient. To see the correct colors on the monitor, should currently be a prerequisite for software that wants to act with Adobe at least at eye level. Do not get me wrong - I find the way, the Serif with the Affinity apps is absolutely great to create radically meshed programs (Studio Link !! 1:1 iPad version !!). But especially in this process, you have to point out a few basic restrictions that may well be a no go for agencies (for example, the desktop apps on the Mac - the color space P3 on the iPad, of course, can not afford 100%, that's clear). Edit: And that's why I can not understand that Apple is serious about their new and expensive high-end monitor on the color space P3 ... Edit2: macOS Mojave 10.14.5

    Color management not working properly?

    @haakoo This 4 sure I know but to show the difference with a screenshot the PNG with the Monitorprofile shows it very well in Photoshop (if u have a correct profiled Monitor - Even P3 does not match 100% cyan) Find attached a cmyk JPG - the color result doesn't change AffinityColorNotCorrect_jpg-cmyk.zip

    Hi, Patrick, I just overlooked Daves post, sorry for that - nevertheless, without a roadmap its hardly to know what kind of rabbit is in the box ... but now I noticed something quite unpleasant in all 3 apps … Color management does not seem to work properly: While all Adobe apps display 100% cyan correctly on my hardware calibrated monitor (EIZO CG 277), this is clearly not the case with Affinity apps. Since we already have to pay attention to correct coloring in the layout phase, this would almost be a knock-out criterion for us if color (especially in the pre-press area of important boundary areas) could not be displayed correctly in the Affinity apps.

Monitor color profile - if the PNG is opened on a properly calibrated monitor, for example in Photoshop, the difference is clearly visible). Hopefully, I overlooked something ... ... if not - should I also post this in the "bug area"? I gonna move it to the bugs area ... AffinityColorNotCorrect.zip

    I am with Peter in that case. First and foremost, I'd really like to compliment the Affinity team - "story link" alone without leaving the layout ... wow. The many really great things that are relatively easy and intuitive to use, I need not enumerate (even usable with iPad...). Nevertheless - especially the publisher really has to catch up with some important features of InDesign, because without these functions a (complete) move will not take place ... ... what I need here 90% daily - in order of priority: 1. Script support (Applescript or at least cross-platform Javascript – a lot of my work would not be efficient without scripts) 2. GREP in paragraph styles (essential for "automatic" micro and macro typography) 3. Override standard kerning with optional "Optical Kerning" (for example, for uniform spacing of numbers in the body text in conjunction with # 2, see above). 4. And yes: footnotes and endnotes AND own table footnotes (footnote text just below the table). Best implemented much better than Adobe has done so rudimentary. So freely definable footnotes with the possibility to determine how the footnote text appears (right column from bottom to top or left column from bottom to top or over all columns or only as many columns as one would like ...) Edit: just forgot 5. Marginalia, which run automatically according to the rules (left column left, right column right - they do not fit below in the type area, then automatically in the next column, etc. pp). InDesign can not do that - and it would be extremely great if Publisher could do that What I do not like at first: The "Search / Replace Palette" ... at first glance, you can not see at all which search options are set without clicking on the menu item. Here you just have to look again how Adobe has solved this with icons that trigger by clicking corresponding functions and are recognizable at a glance including trash can to delete options. For the first time today, I looked a little closer to the final version of the publisher - maybe I also overlooked something ... however, I noticed the above mentioned one at first or I really missed it. If I am more in the topic, I will certainly create poster design, flyer, folder, etc. in the near future with Publisher in conjunction with the Designer and Photo - this one requires of course not above mentioned necessarily criticisms. Cheers, Joerg
