  1. In my case it seems the changes that affected me were that i now have to choose exactly the same color profile in acrobat. before, this did not matter as long as it was a cmyk profile.
  2. oh yes, you are right indeed. I set those to fogra39 in acrobat, seperation looks correct. But this did never happen before. I can open older PDF no matter if set to Web (as it always is coming up in acrobat first) or fogra 27 or 39, separation shows always correct. I did often set fogra 39 or 27 not really bothering much which one and checked with either one of the two in acrobat. Never had a difference. seems I have to take that in account from now on.
  3. Why does the same 100% black 0 0 0 overprint setting (partially, still without overprint) work in the new test document, but not with my main document? I am really at a loss here!
  4. I have no other method how to check separation. Is this really an Affinity Export BUG or an Acrobat problem? Furthermore, I get a better result when I construct a simple new test document "separation test.pdf" with the same black settings, black is 100%, but still overprint is not workin. In the real document (I include an excerpt here called "test main.pdf") I use the same 100% black setting, and the exported PDF (same settings) does not even make it 100% black. find all files included here test main.afdesign test main.pdf separation test.pdf separation test.afdesign
  5. Not able to produce clean color separation for CMYK print anymore from Designer 2.0.4 and Publisher (Mac Monterey) I did set all black text to 100% black 0 0 0 and overprint. Color setting of the document cmyk and fogra 27 I did export to Print (druckerei-fertig) PDF as I ever did but when I check in Acrobat (set fogra27), black ist not just 100% black but has all kinds of colors. What is happening here? I just added to this post I found, that happened to be in Bugs report. But I wanted to get to know from you, if you see the same thing?
  6. have to be more precise with color settings. This is Acrobats fault, I do not understand why it does not even detect the color setting of a document and set itself to that
  7. i could even check it with Web colors in the past and it checked out
  8. OK in my case, I did set fogra 39 and check in acrobat with fogra 27. This did not make a difference in the past. But now it needs to be set to the same on affinity and acrobat, or its not looking right
  9. Using Affinity photo 2 on Mac monterey trying to edit a color channel of a cmyk photo. Can not find the edit buttons (pencil icon) like described in the help documentation. I only see some kind of slider icon. With that activated, I can paint on the channel. But what I need is copy paste portions of the channel. How can I do that?
  10. Thank you, that is great news! Well, that is the other problem, one has to go through every single menu setting to check on that. (Other apps (10 years ago already) showed instantly which one has the conflict.) Of course I checked all menus when I did set my shortkey. And like you say, did not see that other one because it does indeed not have a warning flag. Now its works. Thanks.
  11. Some things affinity does are REALLY REALLY mind bogglin. This is SUCH A BASIC FEATURE, any design software creator with a basic understanding of designer workflow does understand. You set a drawing tool and you will use those settings until you need other ones. OMG how hard is that to understand??
  12. Funny. Professional users have to work around software that is not doing its job. Ha ha. Every pro tool from Indesign, Illustrator to 30 year old FreeHand is able to export anything that is set to 100% black and overprint exactly as it is set. I had to solve this by using a gradient. Which is only possible in my specific design.
  13. yes, it gets rendered at small dpi, despite the document set to 1200dpi. Or even set to no rerender at all.
  14. designer v2, mac monterey cmyk document fogra27 shadow effect set on multiply with only black 100%, separation check in acrobat = not overprinting shadow instead made with transparency tool from 0 to 100% black color swatch set to overprint ALL THIS RESULTS IN AN INCORRECT CMYK SEPARATION, it is never correctly overprint, but always spared out on the underlaying colors. hence designer ist not suited for professional use.
  15. Designer V2 mac monterey Exporting a PDF that does include a qr code b/w image (see left side = in Designer), whatever I set in PDF export, even with PDF resolution set to 1200 dpi and no downsampling, the resulting PDF still includes the QR code in Low Res. (see image right side) Even when I export a PDF, set 1200 dpi, or even set to not render and no jpg compression, the result was always the same Low Res QR code. This should not happen! In that case it should stay sharp like the image on the Designer artboard. In afPhoto it showed the qr code was 22x22 pixel in size. The only solution was I changed the resolution to 2200x2200. But this should not be necessary when no rendering and no compression is done for the pdf export!

  18. I have a complex drawing I first made with brush lines in Designer (Mac Monterey, Designer V2), now I changed it all to straight line with manual pressure setting to get pointed/sharp line endings. But whatever I do, the endings are still not sharp. Drawing a new line, same setting make it sharp. I see no other settings that would change the lines of my drawing to get sharp. Strange.

  19. hmm.. I work for years with designer v1, always had it set that way in designer and publisher, never had that problem.
  20. Bruce, do you have the same odd behaviour, ehen mocing one step up with an object on an artboard?
  21. mac monterey, designer v2 Moving an object (you wrongly call it a "layer") one step back or forth is working fine when I open a new document with one page. As soon as I convert the page to an Artboard, the move forth one step IS NOT WORKING ANYMORE, instead the selection gets changed to select the artboard. nothing happens with the object (aka "layer"). (I affiliated command-arrow up and command-arrow down to move back and forth. no shortkey conflict) regards Thomas Bildschirmaufnahme 2022-12-13 um 10.14.43.mov
  22. I have crashes often too with Designer V2 but on Mac, Macbook Air M2 monterey. I use an external display 32", but I have the Macbook closed, so it is the only screen. The moment I hide Designer after export is done, it crashes. Happened several times already. Bad thing is, I saved the doc, did some changes I wanted not to be saved, then exporting, hide, crash. When I open Designer again, it opened directly with the last document including the changes I did not want to save.
