    Joerg Thoeming got a reaction from A_B_C in 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... 
  2. Thanks

    I'll add my vote for footnote and endnote support.
    > Hope you can implement it in a similar way like in InDesign, . . .
    Please, Affinity, whatever you do, don't look at InDesign's notes. Footnotes are at the document level in InDesign, they should be at the level of the story. That way each story can have its own numbering style and start number. It should also be possible (as it isn't in InDesign), to set the first footnote in a text as an uncued note. And users should be able to define their own sequence and appearance of note symbols (asterisk, pilcrow, dagger, double dagger, paragraph symbol, etc.).
    > Visit any university library and you'll find that endnotes replaced footnotes long ago, perhaps in the 1950s.
    Complete nonsense. Academic publishers prefer footnotes.
    > In the era before computers, endnotes were far easier to typeset.
    That's why notes were set as endnotes at some stage. Endnotes hung on for non-academic texts and in texts published by penny-pinching publishers, but nowadays footnotes are preferred by many. Footnotes are still more labour-intensive than endnotes, but the difference in effort is not nearly as big as it used to be.
    > In today's world, their appearance at the bottom of a page is seen as clutter by most readers. 
    In my experience, readers just get annoyed by having to go to the end of the book (or worse, to the end of the chapter in multi-authored volumes).

    @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

    @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

    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.
    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 ... 
    ... if not - should I also post this in the "bug area"? 
    I gonna move it to the bugs area ...

    That's why a road map of planned features would be useful.
