  1. Bug dissappearing is random, so I think pressing the saturation field was just a coinsidence. I also think it's not just my machine, since I just got a new laptop a month ago, and my last laptop had the same problem (also mac). I do have mostly the same software installed and the same settings on this machine, so that might play a part maybe.
  2. The bug seems to work the same way in color panel too, not just in colour chooser dialog. The strange thing is there seems to be no logic in when it happens and when it works properly
  3. Ok, I got this on tape now As seen on the video, the problem just miraculously goes a way when I click the saturation (S) color number, before that the arrow keys change the number once, and after that starts nudging the object up pr down. ScreenRecording.mov
  4. Hi @MEB, Any news on this bug fix? I've moved from Illustrator to Designer, Photoshop to Photo, but this one small but extremely annoying bug is holding me from moving from Indesign to Publisher I'm surprised this is not talked about more on the forums. Is this only affecting some people, or are others using different techniques for zooming? Thanks, and keep up the great work you're doing!
  5. Thanks for your reply. Looking at the video, I think you understood where the problem is that I'm having. It is difficult to show on a video, since most of the time it works correctly (like in your video), but from time to time the arrow keys only works once (one click), and after that the color field is deselected and further clicks of the arrow keys just move the object up or down. I tried to simulate it just now, but of course now it was working correctly. I will make a video as soon as the problem occures again. I am using: Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 Newest "normal" release of Affini
  6. Hi, I've been having this frustrating problem for a long time now. Step by step: 1. I select an object. 2. I select a number field from color palette or color chooser. 3. I shift the number up or down with arrow key or shift + arrow key, and the number goes up as expected. 4. Now the number from the field get disselected, and only the first press of the arrow key changes the number. After that each click moves the object up or down. This doesn't happen every time, sometimes I can change the color value with arrow keys multiple times in a row, but I can't find any logic to
  7. Yeah, I think I'll do some more testing tomorrow with this. I tried a few versions of the image file, but I think I'll go through them more systematically to see how they work.
  8. The knock out example was the one I was going for, so if AD is not supporting that, then that explains it. I went back to Indesign with this project, as the deadline is creeping in. This is a problem that I hope very seldom comes up, as normally I would just save each color plate on it's own PDF file anyway, but it was a bit problematic with this project. Unfotunately I can't upload the actual job online. I can relate to struggling, reinventing, workarounds, and especially old routines Anyway, I got my answer, and learned something new. Thanks a lot @Lagarto for taking the time to h
  9. Thanks @Lagarto for the file and for helping out. My goal is a bit different. I have a Pantone background color. On top of that color, I'm trying to put a bitmap logo, that will be done in gold foliage in the print. So the background Pantone should be covering everything, and top of that there should be a spot color logo. I've attached a file for reference. In the file you can see the logo image has a white background in it. Test.afdesign
  10. Ok, half way there, maybe... I found that you can't just drag&drop an image to AD, you actually have to Place the tiff, for it to work correctly. Now I can use the K-Only button, and I can color the image with a spot color. But the color seems like it's in overprint, the cmyk color from below is showing through the spot color. And the spot color is still not exporting in it's own color plate in PDF.
  11. @Lagarto Ok, now it seems I might have a wrong kind of tiff... I can't add fill color to the tiff that way. I've only been able to add color to tiff with masking a color element inside the tiff, or with color overlay effect. Neither of those seem to work. I've exported the tiff from Photoshop, with default settings. I tried flattened tiff, and transparent background (layered tiff).
  12. @MikeW I'm not sure I understood everything you wrote, but the tiff image I'm working with is monotone, no curve needed. @Lagarto Maybe I'm adding the color to tiff the wrong way? What is the correct way of adding color to tiff?
  13. @Old Bruce I'm not quite following. In Indesign/Illustrator the same process works without flaw. If tiff with Pantone color gets converted to CMYK, the colors get mixed up with underlying CMYK colors in PDF, which will not work for offset printing. Pantone colors need to be on separate color plates in PDF. @Lagarto There are no effects on the image. And yes, it's a grayscale TIFF. I've tried checking the PDF export settings, but everything there seems fine too. I think default settings with PDF/X1a:2003 should work.
  14. I have a label design in Affinity Designer with a tiff image. Tiff image is colored with Pantone in AD. When I export to PDF, tiff color changes to CMYK. All vector objects with Pantone color export as expected, only tiff has the problem. Am I doing something wrong?
