Just swopped from InDesign to Publisher and need to urgently send some artwork for printers. Need to add a spot colour channel. How on earth is this possible in Publisher??! I can't even find any channel view? Or am I missing something? Tight deadline and I am MEGA frustrated right now. Any help greatly appreciated! x
Affinity Photo has a number of Features/Menus to “copy” data from one layer-channel to another. Except, each type (Composite RGBA, selected layer RGBA, Pixel selection, Spare Channel) has a different sub-set of features/menus which often make a simple “copy” process more complex/difficult. See attached table. Green cells are existing features/menus. 1. If the existing menu items were implemented for each of the channel types (yellow cells) one could copy data from any channel type to another directly in one step. 2. Alternatively, if Spare Channels had the [Create Grayscale Layer] and [Create Mask Layer] functions/menus so a superset of Features/Menus, then one could always create a Spare Channel, then convert the Spare Channel to the desired layer-channel, so two steps at most. These asymmetries may not be an issue for someone coming from years/decades of PS usage but they present extra hurdles for first time editors. Thanks for considering.
