  1. Hi all, Is there a way to import and use a NCS colour palette (.ase file) to Designer and Publisher? I managed to import a RAL palette to both Designer and Publisher (as a Document Palette), but with NCS.ase file, no luck. (The NCS.ase palette works in InDesign CS4) I'm using a MAC, if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance!

  3. In Windows version of Photo V2 you can create a palette from an image or document. But in V2 for Ipad there is no such entry in the drop down menu. I do not know if this was available in V1. But now I am wondering if this functionality was placed somewhere else or is it really missing? If yes, what might be an easy workaround?
  4. Implemented in Designer so far - the swatch reflow is tricky but this works currently. Also Mac and Windows version behave differently and affinity saves .clr files on Mac rather than .afpalette. This is the best swatch picker pattern by far as in the way it groups hues and tints makes color selection so much easier very glad to have go this to work. This version uses a 20 swatch row length.
  5. Thanks to this tool: https://github.com/philippbosch/tailwind-swatches I put together a tailwind palette have fun! tailwind.afpalette tailwind-swatches.clr
  6. As a web designer, I find websites like uiGradients.com a quite useful resource, with a massive selection of ready-made gradients (and css code for those). This palette is a complete (01.09.2018) pack of all gradients alongside their names, hand-imported over the course of an afternoon and a few podcasts. I don't think you can copyright colors/gradients, but the GitHub repository of the uiGradients.com website is licensed under MIT. I'll try to keep the file up to date with the website, but if there's a missing gradient or a error, please tell me about it. Enjoy: uiGradients.com.zip (A preview will follow soon)
  7. Hello everyone :) Since I just really love these colours, I made this palette and I'd like to share it with you. These are the colours of the Touch Twin Markers, from ShinHan Art. I numbered and named the 204 swatches, to keep them sorted as they appear in their Colour Chart, but of course you can sort them as you want. Hope you like them. :) Touch Twin Markers.zip
  8. Although the range of picker types you have is quite wonderful, I'm used to working with HSB/V (Brightness or Value) instead of HSL (for lightness.) It's a common way of specifying colors especially in the land of video. HSL is a similar user experience, but there are a lot of times where it just makes sense to think of 100% brightness (which, to get the same RGB value, somehow works out to 50% lightness.) (And as you probably know, Adobe Photoshop's picker has HSB, not HSL.) This website does a great job of dynamically showing the difference: http://colorizer.org Would you consider adding this option to Designer/Photo/Photo for iPad? Thanks.
  9. Is it possible to use a colour palette to posterize image, please? Can APhoto map all colours from an image to a palette, and/or to closest colour, in this way? tia xx
  10. I want to use Select > Select Same to filter my objects from a PDF. In Illustrator, I can use Select Same to get all the objects that have a particular stroke & fill colour without selecting objects. I can use this to sort items along a gradient/ palette. The workflow is as follows: create a document palette > select the first colour > Select Same > Group > Deselect, pick the second colour rinse and repeat. This is also helpful to retrieve objects that are nested deep within the PDF, as long as you know the colours of the object.
  11. When I import swatches using the “Import Palette…” item, I should be able to select palettes saved from Photoshop (ACO – Adobe Photoshop Color Swatch File) or Illustrator (ASE – Adobe Swatch Exchange File). Are there foreign palette formats that AD can import? Maybe that information should be in the Open dialog box… or somewhere. (The Help Center doesn’t seem to do anything. I can search for a topic like “palette,” but can’t expand the results, so maybe the AD entries are just stubs?)
  12. I made this based on this Youtube tutorial by Greg Gunn. It is an Affinity designer document, that lets you quickly test your color palette. Mainly aimed at website designers. Nothing fancy, it uses global color swatches, so you can quickly visualize it by changing in one place. Here are some screenshots from the file Download the template - Color test 2.afdesign
  13. I work on icons for multiple color schemes, so I have a document set up with a color palette with global colors for everything in the document. From this master document I need to make multiple versions of the icons for different color schemes, e.g. Light UI vs Dark UI. I would love to be able to just swap the palette from the dark palette to the light palette and have all the new colors swapped out where the color names match. Since I haven't found a way to do this yet what I currently have to do I is make a copy of the document, then change each global color to the color in the new palette manually which is really time consuming and a bit error prone. If I could just swap palettes it would be a huge time savings for me Thanks!
  14. I had a need for a palette with named HTML colors, so I've created one without checking out first if someone else had done it already. A quick search of this forum didn't give out any results, so I hope someone else will find it useful. The palette, alongside Affinity Designer and an Excel file, can also be downloaded for my Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1zZ_CnBsp5Q-fBfE-GSBuCxyQL19L5G2b?usp=sharing HTML Color Names https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_names.asp HTML Color Names.afpalette
  15. Just wondered if there's a way for the font group to remember the chosen group? See below. For example, I'd like the 'Favourites' or 'English' groups active each time I open the Publisher/Designer/Photo but it always defaults to 'All Fonts'. Not sure if its hidden in settings, or if you need to create a 'default' document and save it somewhere (I think you had to do that with Quark/Freehand/Indesign many, many years ago!).
  16. When creating a palette from the current document the colors are incorrect. Obviously they are generated from the screen display and not from the objects in the document. So it is impossible to create correct colors of some vector objects by this function. Instead the color is correct if you create an empty palette, select a single object and click add color or global color. AD 1.7.2 OSX 10.9.11
  17. Hello again all, and welcome to the latest round of ‘Whaaaaa … !’ Yes, that's right, there's a new and (possibly) even dumber question than those which have preceded it. That question is: HOW does one UPLOAD a GRADIENT SET to a GRADIENT PANEL in Affinity Photo? Please see screencap for the source of this query's ‘where’. I can find no panel accessible in Studio(-s), and although there is a Gradient Tool, and gradients present in the Swatches panel, I can find no corresponding Gradients panel in any section of the Studio. Am I chasing shadows becos there is no Gradients panel to upload to? As to what is being uploaded, this is a set of 40 Photoshop .grd gradients. Is there an incompatibility that prevents uploading to Photo, or are .grd files an inherently non-uploadable filetype? Thanks again to all for your assistance with this query. And now for Today's Feature Attraction, here’s The UPLOAD of available choice in the Studio panel … Ta-Daaaaaa!
  18. When user assigns the color to group layer, the group layer icon could be better if the color also was added to the "folder" icon as well. This could help user works faster.
  19. Hi everyone! I have a little problem using color swatches in affinity (across all three programms). I defined some colors and safed those in named swatches. To use the colors across all affinity tool, and to use it in some other software. The strange thing is now, that in some dokuments the colors are differently interprated then in others - also if i use the same color settings for the dokments sometimes i get the correct result and sometimes a different... Can anybody told me why this happens?? What I am not seeing here?? I will attach two designer dokuments, with the same color settings...but different results! Thanks for your help!

  20. Based on https://material.io/guidelines/style/color.htmlI created swatches for Affinity with all Material Design colors, properly named nad sorted. Enjoy Material.zip
  21. Hi there, is it possibele to change the icon size of the layers in the layer palette? i have switched to a WQHD monitor and i`m happy with the extra space (comming from a full hd-monitor). so basicly everything is fine, but now it`s hard to detect whats behind theese little icons in the layer pallete. I´n on windows 10 and i know that i can switch the size of the whole interface, but thats no helpfull because then i again loose much more space.
  22. I add a new photo AP. I go to Color, Swatches,, and Add Document Palette, nothing happens. Am I wrong to suggest the colors from the open photo would be added as swatches? If wrong, how can you obtain photo colors to add to swatches, other then color picker one by one.
  23. One thing I have missed for a long time is the ability to copying and pasting individual Layer Effects. What I mean is that I have a set of Layer Effects which I have spent a long time tweaking saved in a Styles Group. And I have another set of Layer Effects which I've also spent a long time tweaking saved in Styles. I wish there was a way of copying some elements from one style and combining it with elements from the other style. When copying and pasting styles and effects they overwrite other styles and effects already applied to an object. Especially gradient outlines and overlays in the Layer Effects panel are a nightmare. There is no way of copying them as far as I know, and so the only solution is to make new gradients from scratch, which is enormously time consuming. It would be an enormous time saver to be able to copy, say an outline gradient from one object and an overlay gradient from another object - and of course other effects as well - on an individual, effect by effect basis. I envision an "effects palette", where you could pick for example the 3D effect settings from one object, the overlay gradient settings from a second object and the outline effects from a third object, apply them all to the object you're working on, and when you're happy with the result, maybe even be able to save the settings of this "palette" as a new style or as an "effects palette preset", where the individual settings can be tweaked further, enabled, disabled and combined with new effects picked from other objects and/or styles.
  24. Color quantization below 8 colors has a problem. 1 - original 2 - 8 colors 3 - 4 colors 4 - 2 colors At 4 colors, white area(255,255,255) will be dithered. At 2 colors, the image is completely messed.
  25. Hi, I could not find if this was covered yet here on the forums. I just exported a color palette in Designer (to iCloud drive) with many global colors that had custom names assigned (RAL palette). When I imported the palette as document palette back into another project the custom names on the global colors were all gone and reverted back to their default names. The standard colors and gradients all kept their names, just the global color names were gone. Please advise. Cheers, Marc
