    When using the paint brush with a quick mask please use the following colours to adjust the mask Painting in black will erase areas from the selection. Painting in white will add areas to the selection. Painting a grey will vary the opacity of the selection depending on the tone of grey used.
  3. Is it possible for you to PM me a copy of your .afdesign file for me to investigate this further.

    Pantone and palettes

    You are able to import .ase (Adobe Swatch Exchange) files into the Desktop version of the Affinity apps To import them go to the Swatches panel, click the small menu icon on the top right of the panel and select Import Palette..., then the type of palette you want (document/application or system palette) and finally select the .ase file you wish to import.
  5. To show the object on the pasteboard you will need to turn off the Clip to Canvas option in the View Mode option from the View menu
  6. Can you please try printing the attached pdf file I exported it using the following setting and it only has black as K 100 win.pdf
  7. Hi Blackout Thank you for the files, Illustrator is exporting the PDF with a K value of 100 while we are exporting as rich black values on all four channels, can you please try exporting your file as a PDF/X 1a rather than a Acrobat 1.5 and then print it to see if you now get all four channels printing rather than the K channel
  8. Is it possible for you to PM a copy of both the PDF's
  9. If you are using K 100 for your black this can sometime be printed as dark grey you can try the following CMYK values for True and Rich black True Black 75% cyan, 68% magenta, 67% yellow and 90% black Right Black 60% cyan, 40% magenta, 40% yellow and 100% black

    Mac and eGPUs

    1.7 will support eGPU devices but while it is still in beta I am not aware of how much performance gain this will achieve, there are some tools being rewritten to take advantage of the GPU and more information will be available closer to the 1.7 release date.
  12. You can do this by by getting a PNG frame image with a transparent background and place this above your image then adjust it to fit you image
