  1. Something that I noticed. Maybe I just don't know how to do it. I know that Pantone Metallics are meant to be used with special inks on coated paper or coated card. Nevertheless I have used a Pantone Metallic in Affinity Designer to try to give an impression of gold text on a greetings card that I hope to get made using the Papier facility. That will use CMYK printing on uncoated card from a jpg file exported from Affinity Designer, so not metallic printing. Notwithstanding using the swatch in an unconventional way, the result on screen looks good. I used the Pantone Metallic 8644 that is the colour noted on a card design on page 8 of another thread. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/138654-artwork-for-greetings-cards/page/8/ The matter that I am writing about here is that when I load into Affinity Designer a .afdesign file made previously, there does not seem to be a way to find that the Pantone metallic is number 8644. I happen to know it is because I used the one documented in an illustration on that page of the linked forum thread. So, if loading a .afdesign file done previously, can one find out, from the content of the file, which particular Pantone colour was used please? I also tested it with a Pantone CMYK coated colour too. William
