  1. There is a somewhat effortful workaround I found for matching my blacks to a predefined rich black (lets say 60/40/40/100). + You've to start with a K-only image or use the black-and white adjustment layer. + Then you can use the Channel Mixer and give each colour the desired value on the "black" slider. So for Cyan the output channel would be 0/0/0/60. For Magenta it would be 0/0/0/40, etc, etc, etc You can see in the picture that the second rectangle merges now into the background. It solves my specific problem, I hate it though! Otherwise LOVE the programs
  2. Unfortunately I am still experiencing this painfully persisting problem (MAC, Publisher 1.10.5): Something with the gradient map in cmyk is not working, especially in the blues and greens. It makes some basic graphic design moves impossible: The bar on top of the typo should 100% match the background-black in the dark areas, but it's completely shifted to the blue. It's so frustrating and at best, time-consuming if not impossible to find different solution.
  3. hahaha, I lost the grain somewhere down the line, you are right of course
  4. Not a re-colouring-answer : (As the question concerns just the tiles of the garage) so far the nicest looking for me, was stitching together a tile made of the white parts of the garage and putting them above the blue... looks convincing!?
  5. Thanks a lot for mac_heibu for sharing this insights and resources. the cleverprinting-PDF is wow :)
  6. yes yes yes!!!! Found it, preferences : user interface. Thank you John, indeed what we see is rarely what we get...
  7. Just for clarification : To export a pdf means, whatever has been in pixel before, stays rasterized. Meaning that exporting something as an pdf is not a way to vectorize stuff. pdf Export settings : So if your text really were in vector, but after the export they are rasterized, then it could be the export setting. If you choose to export a pdf, look under "more" there you find rasterizing options. See which elements are vector and which are pixel : Open your document (should work with a pdf as well) and use Outline-Viewmode (little icon showing some geometrical shapes). See attached screenshots with the icon activated. Everything that is rasterized will appear as an empty rectangle when viewed in this mode. Hope that helps.
  8. Hello ThettRO Media, I don't think that there is a line-tool like there are shape-tools, but you can simply use the Pen Tool to make a line. If the line should be straight (0, 45 or 90°) click, then hold Shift, move (yellow forcast-line apears) and click again. If you click a third time it continues the line, if that's not what you want, just press ESC after you are done with your line. Like this if you click again you start a new line, not connected to the one you just did. Hope that helps!
  9. Dear Affinity-Community, hopefully one of you knows something : My client needs a file (pdf) that requires some lines (strokes) to be RGB-red and have a width of exactly 0.001pt. This hairlines will later define the cutting lines for caoutchouc, so I guess some kind of laser cutting. When i set the stroke width to 0.001point it jumps to zero!?! What do I do? Any work-arounds or solutions? Thank you so much.
  10. Hello dear people, I'd like to retouch a bunch of photos (resize/crop/contrast), all in the same way, and then export them efficiently (like not one by one). Is there a trick? With file->New Stack, I managed to do the retouching-part, which gave me a "Live Stack Group" in the layers panel. (Is this a "normal" layer with childs?). Now I am searching a way to export all single images from this Stack Group. efficiently. like not one by one. Is this even possible? Or maybe you would know a different way to go about it? TL;DR : Who knows a way to export several layers as independent pictures with "one move"? Thank you!!!! EDIT : I think I FOUND SOMETHING that works, via export persona and using the layers as slices... looks promising. sorry for the fuzz
  11. Hehe Cp3, I think if you want a real looking effect you have to use AfD and AfP after to retouch (for the shadow-effect of the paper and how it effects the engravings)... LEFT In AfD I have used a very thin line, gaussian-blur effect to make it visually disappear, outer-shadow-effect as lightening (because you can change the direction) and outer-glow for the darker part to give "substance". it's too blurry in my example, but that is adjustable within the different effects. RIGHT Same thin line but with Bevel/Emboss effect + outer-shadow-effect as lightening. I attached my AfD-file for you, if you'd like to go down that road. However, it seems that it requires some heavy retouching in AfP afterwards, to partially remove the effect/play with transparancy... Hope that helps you at least a little bit. engraving.afdesign
  12. thanks for this clever work-around while we wait for proper implementation of bleed preview.

    magic! I can't stop plying around with it Thanks Tamauro!!! I try to understand how you do that... I can see that one layer mirrors the line and another layer multiplies and rotates it. how do you "record" this actions? would you care explaining the principle behind it???? that would be very very nice.
