    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    Hi @Jens Krebs, thanks to be so "obstinate" on this case :-) But @MikeW is right : Black 100% pure is mandatory in press job. Actually in V 1.8 the only issue is with the text itself : Shadow with swatche "Black 100% CMYK process color with overprint" work very well (better then V 1.7) Black square with "Multiply" on layer and opacity at 60% (i.e.) work very well Text with swatche "Black 100% CMYK process color with overprint" should over print background but does not in V 1.8 (while it IS working in V 1.7) Now I have opened your last "test_new.afpub" file and all text were NOT overprinting the background (see attached i have done with your file). Now I have done a test in just selecting "Multiply" on the text layer and it work. But this is not how it should be because I have already selected "Overprint" in the swatche color. If I have a book with 60 pages to manage, i want to be assured that my black text overprint background. This is why this topic is open.

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    Mike, sorry for delay, i have just seen your file joined... What is YOUR PDF ? The Black for the text is good on yours. That's good. Nevertheless, have you noticed the overlay square at the bottom left ? When Black is hidden on Acrobat, the background should not be altered. On YOUR PDF the text is OK but this square is not ... (We will get it, we will get it :-) )

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    OK Jens, i have opened your different files and tried out your PDF configuration with. No problem, i could reproduce your PDF with black overprint. Now there's differents points i would like to highlight : I do not understand why you cannot create a "Black Global Colour" - To try, I have created a swatche black 100% K without a problem... Fyo, if I'm doing it this way, the black does not overprint. I cannot use the Generic CMYK profil as my printers ask for COATED FOGRA 39 - It looks like Generic CMYK Profil is mandatory to have your good result. (Im even not sure to have the possibility of PDF/X-3 instead of PDF 1.5 I use. I'll ask my printers). I can't go further today as I have some job to deliver But for me this topic is still not solved... So I will be back for sure. Thanks a lot for your time and help Jens...

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    Hi Mike... Most of my Job are destinated to Printers in New Caledonia who ask there PDF 1.5 (Acrobat 6). I know this is a kind obsolete, but I'm pretty sur the issue is not coming from there. As I already explained, generating my PDF that way with AP1.7 give me a Black text overprint on background without any issue. That has stopped with V 1.8... Any idea ?

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    For your information, I have opened your test.pdf file with photo AND Acrobat, and can confirm the issue appear on both...
  6. Hi Savage... I totaly agree with you. Even if i have already upgrade from A.... product to Affinity. I just take very care of this on my PDF and my jobs are OK. But solve this would be really appreciated :-) Yeah, i'm trying to solve it on an other topic in this forum. see it here :

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    Thank you for the time spent here, Jens! I have just opened your test.pdf file... But what I see is not a "Overprint black". This a 4 colors process black. What I expect is a C 0% - M 0% - Y 0% - B 100% color overpint the background (no white behind the txt)... See what I mean ? See my very first screenshot above on part "1.7" : the sky is behind the text (sorry there's a french word for this i can't translate in english = "Pas de réserve blanche" ou "Pas de défonce")

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    OK, this new PDF is done as asking : the 4th "Test" texte (At the bottom right of the page) is done with 100%K, no swatche or spot color. Is that what you asked for ? This one react the same as the Spot color. See PDF join. Actually, the thing is : it was working in 1.7 version. test-cmyk-shadow-v-1-8-b100.pdf

    CMYK Black Overprint regression ?

    Hi Jens, thanks for your answer. Yes absolutely. Actually both V1.7 and V 1.8 are done with exactly the same process, and we can see the difference, right ? The PDF is joined and here's a DropBox link to my AP 1.8.0.531 file : https://www.dropbox.com/s/64fg5ucrcvafbcc/test-cmyk-shadow-v-1-8.afpub?dl=0 test-cmyk-shadow-v-1-8.pdf
  11. Hi guys, I have just tested AP 1.8.0.531. Thanks for all this features your developping for us. I specially love of course the preflight function wich is really a plus. I am currently working with AP 1.7 and I really miss it . There's a lot of improvment for the black color management on CMYK job. Shadow and Multiply layers are now correctly display and well separated for CMYK. This great! Unfortunately, I till found an issue with text that is look like a regression. The fact : I have created a Swatch color C 0% - M 0% - Y 0% - B 100% color with Overprint selected. My shadow and multiply layers are filled with it, and all results are exactly what i'm waiting for. But for a simple text, the black hide the background (sorry this is not the good word, I don't know it in english ). Oddly, this particular case is perfectly working in 1.7 version. Every thing is explain in the screnshot joined. I just hope this will be take in consideration for the 1.8 final version. For your info,I have already opened a topic for this question when BETA 1.8.0.523 was released ->
  12. Hi @Jeanette, this is actually how I'm working. I use AP 1.8.x to open my IDML files, so I can copy all ressources (Textes, etc), and then paste them in AP 1.7.x for production. Both apps are open side-by-side without a bug. Bienvenue :-)
  13. Hi Woefi, thanks for your feedback here I'm starting to do all my projects with Publisher (i did not renew my Adobe yearly subscription this december). The first projet is a monthly newspaper. So i'm a bit scared, but this is how I replace Xpress with Indesign 19 years ago :-) - At this time, a lot of feature was still missing in Indesign. So it is not my first time. I'm checking and re-cheking my test PDF and it seems good. But my production suffers...
  14. Hi Affinity, Since V 1.7 I'm not really understanding the Affinity logic to handle CMYK and specially the Black color. I have already started a topic here where "thomaso" has helped me so much (thank to him) but i was not really satisfied... I've been working in prepress since 1986, when there was no computer yet in that profession. Just to say that I know what CMYK is :-) I worked 12 years with Quark XP and then 18 years with Indesign. I would really like to change all my old habits for this new Affinity tool, but it is really hard to understand the colors management logic of Affinity. Specially in CMYK mode. Down you will find a JPG with my results on comparison 17. vs 1.8. Somethings are good, other just ... sort of regression. The 1.7 and 1.8 PDF are done with exactly same parameters. All 1.7 and 1.8 publisher files are done in same configuration and color mode. I would appreciate all your feedback about that... if it can help me to change old bad habits :-)
  15. Pour les autres en anglais In fact, I also searched for this feature, but never found it. So I got around this problem with the "List" tool (Paragraph panel). advantage, create a paragraph style with params below, and you will be able to use it several time on your work See screenshot, I hope it will be enough understandable ? Example below : Choose your bullet in the list with a "Tab" car on 2 mm in example. Then modify the "left indent" of your paragraph to 2 mm and the "first line indent" to 0
