Whenever I look up a color's code and enter it the color is never the right color -- it's always lighter, as far as I can remember.
I've actually had this issue for the year or so I've used Affinity Designer. But I have a new computer and thought that might make a difference, but no.
I was watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gvm9tXiKP4g&ab_channel=DetourShirts and that reminded me to check this issue on my new computer, a MacBook Pro Max running macOS Monterey Version 12.0.1.
I checked AD for updates, and it says I'm up to date -- AD v. 1.10.4.
RGB code. You can see that I've entered the same values but with a different result. Same for HEX, CMYK and even the PANTONE color.
I searched in Swatches for Pantone Formula Guide Solid Coated V4 (as done in the video) and the correct color appears below, but when I click on it the color is lighter, as in all the other examples above.
When I use the color picker it gives me a completely different code. Here's one example:
When I installed AD on my new computer I didn't change the default. (I don't understand any of what it means, anyway.)
If anyone can reply, please do so in simple language; I know nothing technical about color spaces, etc., lol.
