  1. Sorry for my push... But 1.7.3 has been released this monday. This feature described here probably had no place in this release. Where can I see that this has been forwarded to the dev team? At the moment I am hesitating to give the publisher the purchase recommendation. On the one hand because of this important function, on the other hand how it communicates. For private use, the software is great, as you like to take a small missing features in purchase. But for daily use, publisher needs a lot of time to replace adobe or others. The basis for private or temporary designers is now given. I think the pros must now be emphasized in the development. Please put a focus on the monitor proof function and implement it decently. Thanks a lot and i hope you can do this as soon as possible. Greetings PS: Minimum 10 and later manny more purchase licenses you can have, is profile proof over all sites available. I think not bad for one company with the option of more.
  2. This is a feedback thread. No support thread... Anyway... The proposed workaround is not optimal. If you, like me, I create more designs and documents on a day. A button or a menu entry with a shortcut to turn on / off would be a huge help. I had already communicated this to the developer many months ago in Affinity Photo, then in Designer. Now also in Publisher. Hope this problem gets the attention of the developers. Nevertheless, thank you both for the ideas thumbs up EDIT: My Workaround is export to PDF/X and soft proof in Acrobat Pro. But, whenever I have corrected something, the PDF has to be re-exported. It is not optimal, but it works fine with several pages.
  3. Thank's Gabriel... you are an Angel
  4. Dear Affinty-Team How can I perform a soft proof on my calibrated monitor? About all pages in the document? With the current softproof function, this only applies to the current page. Not suitable for the control of several pages. Please insert the soft proof as a menu item that will help us to check all pages. Additionally, please also integrate the CMYK or spot color separation as a preview. As in Affinity Photo, we can hide the channels (eye icon), such as black, and check them before exporting to PDF/X for the print shop or large printing. These two functions help us a lot in the team. It helps to produce not wrong print data. Please do not wait for it. Thanks
  5. And also Scale. Only with the aspect size of the picture. No any custom resize in any direction.
  6. Thanks for fixing shortly The way to go this freeze in the Screencast: And also in resize after the horizon tool.
  7. We can't do Documentation without this feature, and optional in combination with APub, for the Company's. Please give us an option or implement it. Thank you after years of waiting for this feature

    Separation Bug

    Hi Sean P Thank you i hope. It's also an Bug in AF Designer. My bug reporting in Designer is a long time bevore (2017) but, i think he have this in the fix pipline. That this bug no designer has seen or disturbed, am always surprising me.

    Separation Bug

    Ok nice. I'm not the only one Thank you for your confirmation of the problem. I hope this wil be fixed. And Tiff is an old, not flexible or perfect fileformat. I d'not us it at 10 or 15 Jears a go. I know, other countries like to use this. And, even older formats... also some stupides SWOP formats, for the colors. I struggle every day with such outdated... unfortunately and hopelessly... USA, first... forget it. Not in the printing branche. Sorry, for the last line, it's fact not my personal opinion. Thank you

    CMYK 100% black not 100%k

    Affinity Designer ist also nicht aktuell? Spannend... einen kleinen Moment, ich schaue nochmals zur Sicherheit... Doch ist es! Jetzt bin ich richtig sauer...und sie wissen genau warum? Ich hab extra vor meinem letzten Post die Aktualisierung durchgeführt und auch jetzt ist kein Update gekommen. Ich glaube Sie sind nicht der richtige Ansprechpartner und nicht Qualifiziert auf solche Fragen zu Antworten. Sie gehören wirklich zum Staff? Um es mal abgesehen von meinen Erfahrungen in der internationalen Druckbranche, in einem mir normalerweise fremden Ton auf Ihr vermutliches Alter es auszudrücken: Krass. Ich glaube dieses Gespräch mit ihnen ist beendet. Ich vergeude meine Zeit nicht gerne. Und dem ganzen Nachdruck zu verleihen: Meine Firma bezahlt gerne das Abomodell von Adobe weiter. Diese Firma versteht die Probleme und behebt diese innerhalb eines Jahres. EDIT: (Spätenstens) Beste Grüsse
  13. Sorry for my bad english. I thought it would be clearly formulated. Please excuse my mistake You are right. The source greyscale image must the same in the exported PDF for printing standards. Thats the goal for Affinity and my Bug-Report. Thanks Mike for your hints, you welcome.
  14. Sorry, thats wrong. Open your PDF in Affinity Photo. You see it? Only greyscale. At to morrow i analyse your PDF in detail with Acrobat Pro. At home i have it not. But i think you mix two different printing profiles in one PDF, is this right? Edit: I think my "Black and White Filter" attachement is the better option at this time (but not the solution). But with mi solution i dont leave the Color Profile or attache an other one. I hope i have time to test your file. Thanks Daniel
  15. Hi Here and also in Designer is a color separation Bug at placed 8bit greyscale images. After export to PDF/X-3 für the printing company, the 8bit greyscal image convert to CMYK color space, not to the correct greyscale space. Mor information in the File.
