  1. I just discovered this problem in 2.0.3 so my guess is that the fix didn't make it into that release. I guess a lot of the bugs probably spilled over to the next update especially since 2.0 was so major.
  2. Oh great, thanks! I remembered from Photoshop you would convert it from the mode menu and there wasn't a separate dialog box so I'll just have to get used to the new way.
  3. No, I didn't do it that way. I was trying to change it under Affinity Photo > Preferences which doesn't seem to do anything. I am in the dialog you mentioned now, is this where I select one of the RGBs under "color format?" This image will be going on the web so it seems like that is what I should pick?
  4. I can’t figure out why since I think they were all scanned in the same. I will select a color but it just comes out in a shade of grey. I tried setting the color mode to sRGB or Adobe (1998) but in the top left corner of the window it continues to say “Generic Gray Gamma 2.2 Profile.” A grayscale image doesn't have to be scanned as color to later change it to color does? I don't need to rescan the photo right or do I?
  5. Really?! Wow, I thought that was a standard feature now days.
  6. My screen brightness is usually turned pretty far up so these forums are hard to look at when they are that bright. I just haven't found the setting to switch it on.
  7. That's right, I always forget about that check box. I expect to see it in the main interface area instead of buried in preference box. I guess that is because I think of the change affecting a particular corresponding artboard and not be a document wide change.
  8. Also where is the option to make the white background not show for a png? I thought it was under the "more" section where it says "matte" but it isn't doing it.
  9. Oh whoops! At one point the blue used to be a spot color (when it was going to press) I don't know how I switched it over to cmyk. It was going to a cmyk printer at one point. That's probably the reason. Yes, as @Alfred said there is no need to log-in to Instagram. I am not sure why you are getting a log-in window instead the account page like he is but you probably don't need to see it at this point anyways.
  10. We have a logo that is a royal blue and it looks fine when I export it, meaning it looks like it does in the Affinity doc but it becomes a very light turquoise blue once I bring it into some other applications. I am exporting as a jpg since it is going to the web. Any idea on why I am getting this major color shift? To see a blue which is closer to what it should be you can see the icon on our Instagram. I set up the IG years ago so I don't know why that logo export worked and what I might have done differently. It should have been exported from designer as well. https://www.instagram.com/cascadeprecision/ It didn't really need to be that big but I couldn't find the buttons to easily make it smaller.
  11. I think they could, it is basically just a line drawing. So if the latest version can export as CS6 that would work. I have been wanting a document that explains the Illustrator / PDF connection so I will look that over.
  12. Can you tell me how to do that? I wasn't aware that Illustrator files had embedded PDF files. I'm not sure if the file is corrupt I think it doesn't open in Illustrator just because my version is old.
  13. I had something really weird happen. The place where I work sent me an Illustrator file to open. I couldn't open it in Illustrator CS6, couldn't open it in Affinity 1.8.4. I eventually got the file to open with iDraw which I don't think has seen an update in years!! Does that makes sense to anyone else? That makes no sense to me at all. I would think the native program it's self or a modern competitor to Illustrator would be the best at opening it.
