  1. Good day, Is there a way to see what the Pantone colour value of an object is? I'm working in a "Print (Press-Ready)" document. I applied a Pantone colour, and also added the colour to the swatches panel. If I hover over that swatch later, how do I confirm what Pantone colour that swatch represents? Thank you.
  2. Thank you for the reply, I tested this now with a new document. I added a new Pantone colour. It still does not show the name/value of the Pantone colour when I hover over the swatch.
  3. Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to get the Affinity Workbooks delivered in South Africa? Thank you.
  4. Hi StevenS, Thank you for the reply. I know someone who might be able to buy the books for me in the UK. Is there book shops one can purchase the workbooks from?
  5. Hi, I just bought Affinity Designer (version 1.5.0.36) for Windows. I have the following error: An error occurred while exporting to: C:\Users\Luko\Desktop\Untitled.pdf The file could not be created. I've tested this on a Windows 10 pc and a Windows 7 pc. Please advise. Thank you.

  9. Hi All, Anyone knows what is a good method to convert color images to greyscale non-destructively? Except the Black & White feature. I'm working on a school yearbook, most of the images is groups of children, class group images and sport group images. Thank you.
  10. Hi Toltech, Thank you for the reply. Just need to make sure the Black & White is the best method, specifically for people. I used to do this in PS: 1. Levels - as desired 2. Ctrl + J (for layer) 3. Shift + Ctrl + U (for desaturate) 4. Shift + Ctrl + F (for fade desaturate) (blending mode to color) 7. Flatten 8. Greyscale Is it best to do colour correction before starting with the Black & White method? Thank you.

    Lagging and glitches

    Hi Scheep, after I had this problem, I tried the 1.6 beta. Which (as I said) is much better. Now this morning (after a Windows update) it seems that my AD 1.5 is working fine again and not slow. I'm also using Windows 10. No idea what the change with Windows 10 was, but working much better now

    Hi Chris, Thank you for letting me know. Sounds like this did not resolve his issue so far?

    Hi SrPx, I apologize for the late reply. Just wanted to let you know that I'm going to run Affinity Designer like this on my PC at work. I do not have the time for the reinstallation. Next time with the reinstallation, I will remember about the restore points. Luckily I have a Mac at home with Affinity Designer I can use to convert my work to pdf. Thank you for the advice.

    Cannot Export PDF

    Hi All, Just did a fresh install of Windows. I used to have Windows 7, but upgraded now to Windows 10. After the Windows 10 installation and updates, I installed AD first. The pdf export work perfectly. After that I installed Bitdefender Internet Security. Still worked fine. After that I installed the following: Teamviewer, Xerox Command Work Station, Office 365 and Foxit PDF Reader. Now I have the same problem again. I specifically installed Foxit PDF Reader instead of of Adobe Acrobat Reader, because I felt Adobe might be the problem. Now I'm not sure.Please if anyone can assist.

    Thank you for everyone's input. I uninstalled bitdefender on my windows 10 pc. I uninstalled AD as well. Restarted, installed AD 1.5.0.36 again. I'm still getting that same error. Looks like it is not Bitdefender. I will troubleshoot on other processes some more. If someone can post ideal document setup and pdf export settings.

    All that is installed on all machines is Coreldraw and Bitdefender. I'm not ruling out the fiery software, but I don not have that installed on my pc at home, I think it is unlikely that could be the one causing the problem. I have to not tried to disable bitdefender. I will try that tonight and let you know.

    Hi SrPx, It is weird. I have tried all the settings, same error. But should all the settings not work anyway? I bought two copies of AD. I installed one copy at work and one at home. These two PC's running different versions of Windows. Windows 7 and Windows 10. Both give the same error. I installed the second copy on a second pc at work, also the same error. I love the software, just this one problem I'm having. Patrick Connor answered me in an email stating the they have resolved this problem and will make the fix available in the next Windows release. Now I'm not sure if he was referring the beta I tried today or a non beta release.
