    madtho got a reaction from Aurelio in 1bit / bitmap mode colour format?   
    I work in letterpress printing and screenprinting and use 1 bit mode every day. Please include this feature.
     
    Reiterating what others have said:
    Letterpress require a solid, no line screen image to make clean film for plates. We, too, scan calligraphy for invitations at 1200dpi for high resolution platemaking.
    In PS I  scan>convert to greyscale>play with levels, then Threshold>convert to bitmap. Then I colorize with spot (Pantone) colors in layout software.
     
    I've been doing this for close to 20 years (yikes) and am happy to consult to bring this feature to Affinity.
    thanks!
