    Ctrl + Alt + 0 is (on Windows) "zoom to selection" and it sounds like that might be what you're talking about.
    However, depending on the size and location of the artboards it might not be "display only that artboard". Sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn't.
    Note that for Ctrl + Alt + 0 to work you must have the Artboard selected, either by clicking its thumbnail in the Layers panel or by clicking its name above the Artboard. Probably you'd click on its name, because if you were going to click on its thumbnail you might as well simply double-click the thumbnail, which is also "zoom to selection".

    The vast majority of video tutorials show the Mac versions of the apps, so I’m afraid I rashly assumed that this one would, too.

    Gotta remember the sample book is printed on a specific color/type of paper and using CMYK printing processes and so the RGB in the printed book will be off—it is the values that are important and even so only when printing using the same technology to the same paper (and the same calibration, humidity, etc).
    And in a color managed application that can only have a single color mode, those RGB or CMYK values will only (approximately match even using a calibrated monitor) if the document is in the same color mode one is trying to match to whatever values one is taking from the sample book. So, a primary color mode of RGB will match the RGB values across other applications. But they will not look like the book as it is not printed in RGB.
    Really, having a swatch book printed in CMYK that even attempt to display RGB printed swatches is foolish unless one is using a high-gamut inkjet that has 10 or more inks to use. From what I can see of the RGB swatches, they didn't.
    The top row of printed swatches appear to be for the CMYK values.

    A couple of other possibilities, perhaps:
    Improper screen calibration Colors on screen and printed colors can look different due to one using transmitted light (screen) and one using reflected light (printing, the book). Screen calibration might be the better starting point.
    (Also, especially with a laptop, viewing angle is critical.)

    Hi SprindigoJo,
    I've checked this in 4 different apps and they all give the same results as Designer.  So i'm tempted to say the issue is with the book more than anything.  If you start up MS Paint and click on 'Edit Colours' you can enter the RGB values and you'll see the colours you enter in from the book, match the output from Designer you posted

    SprindigoJo got a reaction from malyKeri in Affinity Designer on Windows (   
    Thanks for the update!
    I really love Affinity Designer, BUT, I'm having incompatibility problems with my Wacom Intuos tablet.
    the tablet buttons and pen buttons don't work. I've customised the buttons for Affinity Designer in my Wacom tablet properties, but they don't actually work in AD - they just crash the program.
    It would be great if the tablet buttons could work with AD, because at the moment, as much as I love it - I end up going back to Illustrator, because my Wacom buttons work there and i can work faster without needing the keyboard.
    Hope it's something that can be fixed!

    Hi SprindigoJo.
    It's highly likely you'll need to upload the dump file (.dmp).
    You'll find that on your C Drive in Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Designer\1.0 (Beta)\CrashReports. 
    'user name' is highly likely to be you. The AppData folder won't be visible by default. In Windows Explorer, at the top left, click 'View' then toward the right side check (tick) 'Hidden Items'.
    Have you between the last beta and this one had a graphics card driver update? The reason I'm asking is I'm on an ASUS laptop (ROG G750JS) and had a crash issue with the last beta due to, I think, an NVIDA driver update. I was able to fix it by uninstalling the beta, cleaning out as many traces of it I could find then reinstalling. My issue had nothing to do with a tablet (I'm using a Bamboo) however it may be worth having a go (?).
