  1. I was trying to import a palette as an application palette. I had just reset the beta (because i accidentally dragged over some default color swatchesWell. palette, and I couldn’t find a “Revert Default palettes” or equivalent) by holding the control key while launching. The palette was the “Google Material BIG.clr” I tried it again a second time after the crash and it worked fine… Process: Affinity Designer Beta [225] Path: /Applications/Affinity Designer Beta.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity Designer Beta Identifier: com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner.be
  2. Some issues I've noticed with Color Swatches: 1. If I create a color swatch using the Gray Slider color palette (and even using thethe built-in color Grays color palettes in AD) and then proceed to inspect the values AD uses by switching to the CMYK sliders color palette, AD converts the 1 channel (grayscale) swatch into a 4 color blended CMYK "gray", not a true C: 0%, M: 0%, Y: 0% and the K% (black) channel corresponding to the original value in the Gray slider-defined swatch. See attached images for reference. 2. Furthermore, if I double click on the color and open up the expanded co
  3. I have a question concerning colour. When I create a new Affinity Designer document, the Default Black colour isn't 100% Black, it is 72 Cyan, 68 Magenta, 67 Yellow and 88 Black. Why that colour? If it was "registration" (100% of all colours) I could understand but it isn't. It is odd because I have set the colour space to be CMYK when I created the document. Is this a bug or is it supposed to be that way? For someone who has experience working with images for print it isn't as much of a problem (it is annoying but can be dealt with) but for someone who doesn't quite understand the printing p
  4. Hello, I have a problem to choose a color with the dropper tool. When I select the dropper (and I drag it to through the screen) I choose a color and then it disappears... How can I solve that? Thanks!
  5. A lot of apps have a custom way of dealing with colors, just like Affinity Designer. But most of those app also support the native OS X color picker, c.f. by giving a simple shortcut in the menu like "Show Colors" to open it. The color picker is an app that's been around for years. Many of us have vast collections of palettes for our projects in this app. With apps like Hues and Colors Pro plus the huge amount of plugins which is available for it, it's still happen to be one of the best ways to manage colors and get in them in our designs. In short: In my eyes this is a mandatory addit
  6. Not sure if has been reported before, can't find any similar. If it is the case, sorry. When working in CMYK, the current color, recent colors and eyedropped color shows in RGB, which is very confusing as makes difficult to appreciate real color being used. I attached screen capture of the issue, showing path in real color and the rgb green in the dropper and cmyk selector.
  7. When adding noise from the top color selection tool to a shape the color changes on the screen- Pic 1 & 2. But when I added noise onto that same shape & color from the right panel it did fine. (not sure what to call the different panel selections)
  8. I spent a long time looking for this feature (or a similar one) and I was a little disappoint when I didn't find an alternative. I like the way the recolor artwork panel works in Illustrator, I use it mostly for complex multicolored work. I tend to work with more neutral colors or toned down shades that don't strain my eyes and change everything to the final colors when I'm finished. I think every designer and digital artist can benefit from a tool (or a mode of selection) that allows you to adjust color globally. Creating illustrations (both abstract minimal ones and more complex works) in
  9. I find myself repeatedly setting up the color picker in Layer Effects > Colour Overlay, switching from either HSL Colour Wheel (apparent default in Layer Effect > Colour Overlay) or RGB Sliders (default in the context bar, just below the toolbar) to RGB Hex Sliders (my personal preference). The reset happens when I jump between color pickers in Colour Overlay and the context bar. To replicate: 1. Create a new document, and draw a rectangle. 2. Change the rectangle's fill color using the context bar color picker. 2a. Go to Colour tab in the picker, and change to RGB Hex Sliders.
  10. I've read that you have list mode in the pipeline, which is great, but i'm missing the option to make my own arrangements of colors inside the palette. Actually adding new swatches uses a photoshop like approach: to fill the available space in the grid color after color, fixed way. In illustrator you can change the order of swatches at any moment and arrange color in folders, making rows of color sets inside the swatch palette, which is very useful for interface design or comic design. I noted that in Affinity designer you can easily create multiple custom sets and change them fast fro
  11. Not sure if I've included this before? When you click on a fill in the swatch panel. Right click > Rename-fill/Delete-fill 100% guaranteed to crash the app every time.
  12. Is there a short cut / shortcut key for quickly cloning the color of one object to another? For example, I have a square that is purple and a circle that is orange. I select the circle and would like to sample the color from the square to turn it purple. The only way I can seemingly do it is to select and drag the eyedropper tool (from the color palette), then sample the color from the square. Then I need to select my circle then click the colored sample from the eyedropper in the palette to change it's color. Basically, I'm looking for the exact same function that illustrator pro
  13. When I develop the css of a website, I like copy / paste the hex code of a color. When I like a color, I copy it hex code for use in the new creations. Show hex code of the color and allow to copy it with 1 click, could be perfect. What do you think of that ?
  14. Hi, nice offer for - 20% but without a Demo its a Risk of 80% ... ((-; So here are a few Questions, that are very important for me: Color: - can AD save and load individuel Color-Sets and save them with the Project-File? - is there support for HKS/Pantone Colors? - handle different Spot/CMYK colors in one Document? - any support of Preview ICC-Profiles? Export: - support for Adobe Acrobat Profiles or Distiller? - otherwise: can AD handle different Output-Profiles for EPS/PDF with export-Details like Cropmarks etc.? - export Selection only? Fonts: - Fonts on Paths or Objects o
  15. Good Morning, I'm just finishing my first piece of artwork produced with Affinity, and really enjoyed the process so far. However I would like to experiment with some different colours schemes, Is there a way to select and edit colours rather than replacing individually? or can I set up colour pallets with global settings?
  16. Howdy folks, I'm trying to fill a a vector image that was created with the pen tool and I'm having some difficulty finding a way to color it in. I don't fully understand this pixel persona, but I've tried both rasterising and using pixel brushes and using the vector brushes, but am not getting a good result. Right now it's okay if it's just one color, though I'd like to figure out how to shade as well. Can anyone provide some guidance on this? Attached is the file I'm working with. Thanks in advance! drinking buddies v4.afdesign
  17. Hi, Very often, when you want to pick a color with the eyedrop, the current sliders in the view are not updated all the time to the picked color. 1. I pick the HSL Sliders 2. use the eyedrop to chose an existing color 3. click on the color to apply. 4. Sometimes (always ?), the sliders won't be updated to the color picked You have to switch to another slider type to refresh them.
  18. It would be very useful to have functions to select the same: Color fill stroke (color / width) Appearance To quickly select all your outlines, or background element in 1 color. Speed is everything. :)
  19. The attached 3 screenshot show 3 Affinity color modes CMYK (8 bit) RGB (8 bit) LAB/16 They defenitely do vary too extreme. The background vector rectangle has a neutral grey fill (cmyk 20/20/20/100) and a black/white level adjustment applied. The applications rendering intent is set to "Relative colorimetric" + "Black point compensation" active.
