    Bug on CMYK slider

    I'm having a issue with the sliders when selecting CMYK on Colour window The box covers the sliders and I can't find a way to fix this. Is there a fix? My OS version is 10.11.6
  2. Just a wild, crazy thought... why do paragraph and character have to be separate panels at all? Can't we have just one single, long panel with all text settings together. We could call it "Typography". If I'm editing text, I inevitably have both panels open at the same time anyway and it will remove some redundancy. Here's what I'm thinking: The same thing with colour and swatch panels. I also always have both of them open at the same time so they might as well be in the same panel like this... (Note the pull down menu for choosing different swatch display styles – small icon, big icon, list view etc. Just a little idea thrown in for good measure) Since your roadmap includes multiple fills and strokes, perhaps strokes & fills should also be crammed into 1 panel. I'm worried you're going to take Illustrator's approach to multiple fills & strokes... 1 panel for stroke 1 panel for fill 1 panel to list them to define which you have selected. and another panel for for effects, just for good measure?
  3. It's been a while, but it seems to me that in the MegaCompetition's apps, if you pressed D, you got a default black stroke & white fill. Is there any equivalent, or other shortcut strategy, to accomplish this in Designer? thanks in advance, - pbass
  4. What are color fonts? They are the next big thing in graphic designThey bring multiple colors, shades, textures and transparency to type They include vector shapes, bitmap images or even both into font filesAnything I write here, would just be copying from this website, http://www.colorfonts.wtf/ Have a read through it, then decide if you want colour fonts. I know, that I want it!

    Colour Issue

    Hi guys I'm having an issue with colours in Affinity Designer. Despite entering the correct HEX code into the 'Colour Chooser', the colour always displays lighter than it should (higher saturation?). Example attached. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help. Adam
  6. Hello community, thanks for the possibility to take part here. Trying to figure out how "selecting by colour" works, i am not able to find the solution. Does anybody perhaps know how to do it? Similar to the Illustrator function "Select ... same colour". It would b nice if someone could help. Greetings from Berlin :)
  7. Very, very easy one! In photoshop you can click D and it sets the foreground/background colours to black and white. Useful if you've been painting in another colour and you want to do mask work. If you wanted to go an extra step, you could allow setting of a range of fg/bg colour pairs that can be selected/rotated.
  8. Hi there, I usually solely work with sRGB IEC61966-2.1 but unfortunately the exports looked like crap, so I tried every installed ICC profile and realised that the profile that the exported picture looks alike is the Samsung Natural Color Pro. I thus checked all the settings, converted the ICC to sRGB again, set it manually in the exporter but it still didnt work - it kept exporting with the Samsung profile. In the end the only solution I could find was to convert to the Samsung profile and, additionally, set it manually in the exporter instead of using document profile. This does not seem to be a solution on the long term. Maybe someone else has made similar experiences and can confirm this bug. Many thanks!
  9. The Background colour sliders in the Character panel will not update as you change the colour, see attached image to better understand what I mean. If the popup is closed and opened again the correct colour will show. Thanks!
  10. The spot colour indicator should have a black line around it so it can be seen with lighter colours. The help section shows it correctly, but Affinity itself doesn't. Please see attached image. Thanks!
  11. It would be a welcome addition if we could make a swatch based on another swatch, not unlike Sass (https://robots.thoughtbot.com/controlling-color-with-sass-color-functions). In interfaces for example, I could create a green button with a darker green border. The darker green would be based on the original green and have the same hue and saturation, but the lightness would differ. That way, if I later change my mind and want to make all green buttons blue, the dark border would shift along. I'm looking forward to your thoughts!
  12. Document: sRGB 16 Color Value: #E2893A Digital Color Meter (sRGB) on color pane: #E2893A Digital Color Meter (sRGB) on element: #E28939 colormismatch.afdesign colormismatch.afdesign
  13. Since I don't want to mark everthing I don't get within AP as a bug I post my question here ... maybe someone has got an idea ... (Final Version, AP Windows) Dealing with this picture. There's only one pixel layer visible and activated, The paintbrush is selected. The mixmode is normal and selected colours are black & white as can bee seen in the tool panel. Now painting on the pixel layer with the brush gives my this result (painting in white): switching to black looks like this: I have no idea what goes wrong ... Maybe someone can help. Cheers, Timo
  14. I have just installed Affinity Photo 1.5.0 on my Mac with OS X 10.12.1 (Sierra). I use an Epson printer. I am entirely new to Affinity Photo, so please forgive me if the answer to this is obvious. In Photoshop there is the option to let the printer's own colour controls manage the printed colours or to disable these and let PS manage the colours; I usually opt for the latter. I could not find an equivalent place in AP where I could make this choice, and when I printed a photo the print that resulted was grotesquely too dark and with bad colour balance. I should be very grateful for information about this. I am aware that back in 2015 there was much discussion about the limited nature of the AP printing interface, but I hope that in the major upgrade to v. 1.5.0 this has been resolved.
  15. Hi! I've been trying to prepare one of my clients business card design for printing using cold foil to give certain elements a metallic effect. To do this I need spot colours for the elements that I want to give the metallic effect to (might have to add overprint as well). Spot colours seem to only apply to color fills and not to outlines so these need to be expanded first. The logo, however, is made up of advanced brushes which apparently cannot be expanded. Simply recreating the logo isn't an option either because it's one of those dry brush effects. Is there any way to get these designs ready for cold foil printing when expanding isn't an option? Any help or advice would be really appreciated as I'm nearing the deadline.
  16. Would welcome an option like "Do not color manage this document", "Do not assign color profile" or "No Color Management" in both AD / AP. :)
  17. Hi, I think affinity misses heavily on some good colour correction options. Other software brands allow for almost automatic correction or profiling using great/xrite colour checker cards, e.g. passport, SG24 or DG which are all industry standard. Without that option of automatic profiling Affinity photo is not really to be any valuable tool for pro users who take colour processing seriously. Please add this feature. Thanks.
  18. Hi, i want to assign / convert a documents color Profil but the buttons "assign" "convert" are grey and not active... Why?

    HSL sliders broken

    Hi, HSL option in colour palette seems to be broken? There is a Hue box, which is getting in the way of the S and L sliders, making HSL unusable right now, see attach pic... Thanks! Wayne
  20. Obwohl ich Text in Schwarz (RGB 0-0-0) angelegt habe, wird er im PDF-Export zur Mischfarbe (CMYK 89-78-62-97). Was mache ich falsch? Although I created text in black (RGB 0-0-0), he becomes in the pdf export the mixed color (CMYK 89-78-62-97). By the way: I tried CMYK 0-0-0-100, also the Black/White Circle. No differenz. What do I make wrong? Kalle
  21. Sometimes, while working in a doc with text frame text above a box with colour I make one click in the box with colour and suddenly it no longer has that colour. I suspect that somehow I have initiated an AD method that allows one simply to click on a box of colour and drop in the previously used colour (or no colour, as the case may be). However, I have yet to figure out just what sequence of clicks has done this. The mouse clicks are not used CMD, OPT, etc. but only a simple left-mouse click. Is this an AD method or a bug? Thanks.
  22. Hello, It would be really nice to be able to see a live preview when selecting a sampled colour in Pixel Persona as an overlay or black and white mask. Currently it shows an approximate result while dragging a slider ( dashed lines ). Extracting clour range ( sampled colour ) and using it as a layer mask or fx layer is a common practice in compositing. Architectural visualizations for example. I can select a sampled colour and click Refine to check if what i did was ok, but it is always a guess. Designer is a GREAT program, but I really miss this feature. I am testing Affinity Photo Beta for Windows and I can't see this kind of tool as well. ( Pixelmator has it BTW ;D ). I know it is a beta so maybe it is a good time to point it out. Performance-wise, maybe taking a screenshot and previewing selection mask on a low-res image is a good idea? Best Regards, Marcin Mirkowicz.
  23. Hi Folks, After a spot of help again... So I have a design whereby I have three similar shapes, Each a different colour at present. I now need to match all three. Is there an easy way of matching the colour exactly? Cheers folks Mark
  24. Hello, I drew a pair of spectacles with the curve tool. I started with the outline of the frame, then i drew each of the lenses. Now I want to fill it with colour, so that only the frame is coloured while the lenses stay transparent - like glasses are. But instead of only the frame the whole space is filled, including the lenses. I tried several approaches, but no one did work. How can I do it right? I'm new in AD. Maybe the solution is super easy, but in the moment in can't see it. File is attached Thank you. Brille.afdesign
  25. This is the new bug I've experienced. It does not matter what kind of colour I choose but it ALWAYS changes to purple or something like that. I closed the software and opened later and still that the same issue is there. Is anyone dealing with that problem also?
