  1. I see that changing the profile within the document changes the colour reading. Thank you, I'm able to replicate this issue with and without my problem. However... This is not how a profile should work. A profile should be adjusting the way it is displayed on screen, simulating the final experience, not changing the actual colour mix of the object/pixel/swatch etc. This is a problem.
  2. I've made a screen cast video of this so you can see it in action, but simply put, here is my process: 1. Open a CMYK PDF. I confirm the document is still CMYK. 2. Select the orange object. The orange is 5/60/100/5 3. I copy it. 4. I create a new document. It's also CMYK. 5. I paste the orange object into this new document. 6. The orange object now reads as 13/64/100/2 (In the video, I copy-n-paste back to the original document for good measure and the new color mix is retained which makes me suspect it's being copied with RGB values, not the CMYK values) Why does this orange object change its CMYK colour mix when moving from one CMYK document to another. It's not changing colour models so I expect it to remain the same color mix. Please can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong. When this happens, I can't trust ANY colours in my documents. If I can't copy-n-past a logo from one document to another and keep the corporate colours, I can't use it for professional design work. Please tell me it's something I'm doing, and not the application that doesn't respect color mixes and converts everything to RGB first. Copy_&_paste_between_CMYK_documents.mov
  3. Hi I've posted another topic regarding the lack of global swatches not being included when copy-n-pasting artwork from one document to another (which is also a shortcoming in Publisher so that's clearly not a bug, just a strange for process), so part of this video is repetitive, however.... when creating swatches from colours used in the document, I'm getting strange mixes that don't match what's in the document. I show this in the video as well. This is my biggest concern because it should be a solution to the lack of global swatch's follow-through. In my video, I demonstrate how a simple 2-colour blue (100/50/0/0) shifts to 100/39/0/26, a 3-colour version. If I'm right, it means that every colour in a corporate identity is at risk of shifting to something else the moment I paste a logo into a new document. Hopefully someone can correct my work process and it's not a bug because inconsistent colour mixing between documents is a real deal-breaker for professional design. Swatches_problem_displayed.mp4
  4. Thanks. BTW, I've picked up a very strange bug that converts a global swatch to the wrong colour. I've made a video demonstrating it. I'll open a new topic for it since it's quite broad covering a few colour issues that are preventing me from working confidently.
  5. I paste a logo with global swatches (Corporate colours that must never ever change) and the swatches don't follow into the new document. The global swatch is there "sort of" because the colour palette says my object's fill is a global swatch and I can even edit it, but I can never apply it to another object because it's not in the swatches palette anywhere. Major fail... Here's a screenshot showing the global colour in use, but no document palette or global swatches in my swatches palette.
  6. I'm having the same problem in Designer. Paste a logo with global swatches (Corporate colours that must never ever change) and the swatches don't follow into the new document. The global swatch is there "sort of" because the colour palette says my object's fill is a global swatch and I can even edit it, but I can never apply it to another object because it's not in the swatches palette anywhere. Major fail... Here's a screenshot showing the global colour in use, but no document palette or global swatches in my swatches palette.
  7. Ah, I see. I thought that once it had been brought into that persona, it would be editable as an open Designer file – requiring saving again after inspection. If it's just a viewing persona only, then I can go with you on that one.
  8. Hmm, this happened two days ago on the latest version (version 1.6.7). Perhaps under certain conditions it pops back again? (Eg: Low RAM, Running PhotoShop at the same time, A specific zoom level??? There are so many things that might cause a relapse.)
  9. To be honest, this is an intermittent problem that I can't reliably reproduce, so I don't know if it's actually a bug or not. Sometimes, when I try to move a selection, the bounding box that appears doesn't line up with the marque. Here's a screenshot – notice how they are about 10 pixels offset from each other.
  10. Master A layer was sitting in the middle of a group of layers. The moment I selected the group, I would automatically get that master layer. I thing the true bug is that we can select & group the master layer with other object-layers. If they make it non-selectable and always at the bottom, bellow all the other layers, this wouldn't happen.
  11. Oh, wait. rusty5, you are a genius. I've just done a more careful search and I did infect find that layer. I noticed when doing a "Select All" command, I seemed to be selecting something that looked like the page's margins. Now, if I select everything except that layer/object, it works perfectly. Thank you. Perhaps I should list this "Master A" as a bug of its own???
  12. No. There is no "Master A" layer... just the objects in my layout. The master page also doesn't have a layer waiting for me. Creating one before pasting makes no difference. I"ve just tried selecting every object manually and then Copy-n-paste them across in smaller batches. No crashes when I do this. I've tried doing this with all the text only, then the arrows, then the shapes... again no crashes. I am able to get everything onto the master page, I just can't do it all at once. It only crashes when I take everything across at once. I suspect there might just be clipboard limit at play here.
  13. Here's a screencast of my experience. It's still happening every single time. (surprising really... problems usually disappear the moment someone else is trying to fix it) process.mov
  14. Here you go. Select All. Go to Master page. Paste. (All done as keyboard commands) Full spectrum outlined.afpub
