  1. I asked to soon. The solution is to set "Color Space" in the PDF export dialog to "RGB" (it was set to "as document"). But the document was in RGB all the time. It seems to me, in case of 32 bit RGB documents, the change from "as document" to "RGB" is not changing the color mode (cmyk to rgb for example), instead it is changing the gamma curve selection. If I leave it at "as document" I only get linear ICC profile choices for export. If I change it to "RGB" I only get gamma curve ICC profile choices for export. EDIT: And on top of that, in my document I used filters, clippings, gradient etc. to create the "rainbow gradient. Thoses ones export fine to png. But they don't to PDF. So I had to change the "RGB" setting and I had to flatten the "rainbows" for PDF export. Ok, that was a tricky one for me.
  2. In Designer 2.4.2 (Windows) I have a 32 document with linear sRGB color space. I view it with 32bit preview (ICC Display Transform) - it looks ok. (the three screenshots appear twice in the post - ignore the bottom ones). I export it to PNG - export is ok. I export it to PDF - export is not ok (see the "rainbow gradient"). Difference seems to be: PNG export allows to choose a sRGB ICC with gamma curve. PDF export allows only sRGB ICC with linear gamma. Is there a way to solve this?
  3. Yes, I know. It is not meant to be a scientifically correct image. The position of the rgb primaries is also not "accurate".
  4. I tried that approach as well, but a radial gradient does not do the trick in this case.
  5. Last try: I thought, one of the blending modes in Desinger allows for some kind of linear rgb multiply or so. But in the end I had to add the cyan, magenta and yellow on top of rgb to get a result. It seems the best blending mode for this type of effect is linear burn. The document is in 32bit mode to get linear processing. I should have tried adding the missing colors before asking, but nevertheless, thanks for the help. Color-Management_Color-Space_01-c.afdesign
  6. I am trying to create a representation of color gamuts like sRGB. For that I like to use the well known color "horse shoe" (xy chromaticity diagram). But I failed to create a "rainbow" diagram in Desingner that looks like the example from the internet. Any idea? Color-Management_Color-Space_01.afdesign
  7. Thanks for the information. Unfortunately that is exactly not the solution I hoped for. The remote controller does not have number keys, it has spin dials like a scroll wheel on a mouse. E.g. I have set SHIFT + 8 in APhoto to decrease brush size (square brackets don't work in Affinity with German keyboards). On the remote controller I set this combo to a left swing of one of the dials. The dial is then sending a stream of SHIFT+8 signals to APhoto and as a result I get a continous decrease of brush size till I stop the dial spin. It works well and for me it is much faster and more fluent then hitting keyboard buttons. Same for brush hardness: SHIFT+ALT+8 is decrease in my APhoto - on the controller it is assigned to a button + wheel - that also works well (I just wish they would have added a feature to set the % value - actually it is hardcoded to 10% steps instead of being user configurable). But the decision to set the flow in fixed numerical values instead of a continuous plus / minus signal breaks this workflow concept. And that I need to hit shift plus number keys makes it worse because I more or less need two hands for this. As this breaks the flow completely I stick to the flow control in the top panel which is at least less distracting than moving both hands to the keyboard. Is there maybe another hidden trick to solve this?
  8. I am searching for a shortcut in APhoto 2.4 on Windows for adjusting the brush flow value. I am not interested in "typing a value on the keyboard" because it can't be mapped to a remote controller. I need something like CTRL + SHIFT + Numpad + / - which I can assign to a remote controller. I know there was no shortcut years ago, but maybe they added it since then?
  9. It is not a driver setting, it is in the painting software called Krita. It seems they identified, there needs to be some cool API trick to get right click working in Windows Ink mode. The Inspitoy is a graphics tablet not a pen display - maybe there is a difference in the driver architecture. I tried a bunch of other software (ClipStudio Paint, Krita, Rebelle, Davinci Resolve, XNView, ...) - right click is working everywhere except Affinity. Maybe something to be looked into in the future - in end it is not a big issue. Affinity right click works in wintab mode which is good enough in most cases. Windows Ink is just better for me at resolving pen tilt and very light brush strokes. But that is subtle and I need it only for detailed painting, which I continue to do in dedicated software anyway.
