Read in forum "some people" ask this feature... But color separations preview is important for professional printing. For printing process, we use Illustrator a lot for these tools: checking resolution of bitmap pictures, checking and correcting CMYK (especially convert composite black to true black when a pdf has been generated with som "exotic" software") and so on. Full control and preview is important if not working only for screen and web! That's why I continue to use Adobe Illustrator rather Affinity Designer. Printing a PDF and checking resutl in Acrobat is not an answer. Wish this helpfull fonction will be added one and not stay specific to Adobe... Hope it will be present in Publisher too if it pretends to be a serious "InDesign Killer". So Hope I can really work with "Affinity suite" once main professional functions are here :-) Sorry for english mistakes, usually writing in french here.
Working in somr Architecture University, we produce and manage lot of large format layout. In Designer as in Publisher, Colour separation is very important (to control real gray scale for instance) and working with a full CMYK commonly used. I check many documents with illustrator (easier that indesign) to check colour space, true black, bitmaps resolution and so on in a document. As many here, I mean such tools are perhaps dispensable in a hobby work, but not in a professional work if you want to be concurent with Ado...(you know!) An sure we'll enjoy to have some professional alternative to "major" editors ;-)
