  1. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but in my document if I right click a non-global swatch I can't select "Make Global" and for the life of me I can't work out why. I have some spot colours in my document already and wanted to make some other colours global so they could be easily changed across the design but to no avail. I can workaround it by writing down the colour values, then clicking the small icon in the top right of the swatches pallette and selecting "Add Global Colour" but this is time consuming and somewhat annoying when there's a context menu option staring at me! It's possi
  2. Hey guys, One thing that keeps bugging me when I open a project that I'm working on is that the first thing I have to do is switch to the respective Document Palette from the Default Palette. Wouldn't it make more sense for a document to remember this and just select the last Document Palette you used (in case you have more than one) when opening a .afdesign file? Or at least give us an option in the Palette menu to set that Document Palette as default for that specific document. This would be nice as well. What do you think? Thanks in advance, Cristian
  3. I purchased Designer and Photo years ago but I just couldn't replace Illustrator & Photoshop because of a few missing features that are just workflow basics. I've moved to the Windows platform and just downloaded new trial versions of them to give them another chance, and these problems persist. Most of them relate to features that prevent the user from making critical, unprofessional mistakes like inconsistent color use across multiple documents. If you are deigning a flyer, a business card and a name badge, you can't have variations between them. These are a few [very] minor omissions th
  4. Hi folks, I found a bug that's consistent and 100% repeatable at my end: any time I attempt to rearrange swatches within a custom swatch set (palette? mix? not sure the term, but a custom swatch collection similar to the default Greys, Gradients, Crayons etc.) the program immediately crashes. This was a glitch in the previous build, and after updating today to 1.9.3 the issue remains. For the record, I am using the Designer.app interface within Publisher.app, but I can confirm the issue arises in the standalone Designer.app too. I'm running Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7. I have to say, I'v
  5. Publisher question. Hello, I've made CMYK swatches of my client's pallet. Then I made various standard tints and also added those to the swatches. I wanted to see the percentage breakdown of each process colour. So, how much C and M is actually in that 15% tint of the full strength version for example. Am I missing something? The only way I could show the actual values of the tinted version of the colour was to use the Colour Picker pipette and select an area where the tint is used. All other options of showing sliders in various places only showed the full strength original, which is inc
  6. There should be a black outline on these indicators, otherwise you can't see them on white swatches. See the attached image, and the name of the swatches. The only one you can see is overprint, the others are invisible on white. Thanks!
  7. Whenever I edit a global colour value I have a chance the popup will move around the screen after the edit. See the attached video, it makes more sense when you actually see it. I can’t find a way to consistently trigger it, but it feels like the closer the popup is to the bottom edge of the screen, the more likely it is to happen. But it’s not a certainty as you can see. I feel this might have something with the physical screen size of my device? It’s a 9.7” iPad Pro and the screen is getting cramped by today’s standards, maybe the low amount of space is making the popup be “unsure” of w
  8. One little thing that might enhance usability would be to add some indicator with every colour swatch to show what kind of colour it is (CMYK, RGB, Greyscale, Spot). This could be a small symbol like in the Adobe products, or a letter or short word. It should be visible in the list view, there's enough space for something like that. In the compact view I don't see a way to add this info, except for the tooltip. Also, I would love to be able to see the (current) numeric values of swatches more easily. A swatch should show these after their name, maybe in parentheses, or italics: "Log
  9. I really need to be able to import swatches in the iPad apps, and I can find no logical reason not to have this feature. I can import brushes, fonts, symbols, assets, but not swatches? It is essential when working with color to be able to import a palette with specific characteristics. On the desktop it is so easy to do, but on the iPad it is impossible... Also I considered creating a swatches set myself from an imported image, but this required so much back and forth, clicking and opening menus it was a nightmare and I gave up after 4 colors. Please implement importing swatches soo
  10. Is it possible to access swatches from the context menu as shown below? Of course I mean document palettes should be listed here shouldn’t they, logically? If not, why not? Thanks
  11. I love Publisher but IMHO it has the worst colour system I have ever seen (in over 30 years). How did LAB, RGB and CMYK end up on the same palette when I only work in CMYK and the publication was set for CMYK? I NEVER work in LAB. I have 68 colours like this: "Rick 13-EN_No Photo 2 is the name of the publication. Useless as colour information for an in-document palette. It should be simple to create my own custom CMYK palette but instead it's horribly complicated, if not impossible. It's a monumental time waster. Why can I change a colour in this dialogue but not in that one. An
  12. Hi Guys, I need your help. I haven’t seen a tutorial of how to make a swatch or import a swatch or what files are supported for that. What am I missing? Thanks in advance, Alex
  13. Dear All. I am creating artwork in Publisher which combines text and CMYK images and will be used to produce litho print from. I have (believe I have) created a 'text black' swatch. This is purely 100% K. No other colours. No Cyan, Magenta or Yellow. However, when I export as a pdf and review in Photo. The 'text black' has reverted to a CMYK black. Please help. Andrew PS. Is there a way to see seperations in Publisher?
  14. Hi I am trying to import the color palette into AD from ase file which isa standard for illustrator. Is there a way I can do this. Right now the AD doesn't recognize this file type. Thanks Pranav
  15. Hello everyone, I gathered some common used colour palettes used to make plots in R. Thought it might be useful for some of you as well. - colour brewer: only included set1 set2 set3 and paired (the ones I use the most) - viridis: viridis and magma - GeoDataViz: in here I also created gradients with 4 colours 0-25-50-75-100% if you spot any mistake let me know. cheers, Leonardo colour_brewer.afpalette geodataviz.afpalette magma.afpalette viridis.afpalette
  16. Using the colour picker in the "magnified" mode, the RGB values on the document (e.g. fill layer) are different from the same colour in the swatches panel. For example, in a new layer filled with R:242 G:13 B:13 the corresponding colour on the swatches panel is R:220 G:51 B:17. It's the same for every choice. Is the swatches panel able to show the right colour? Thank you
  17. Hi guys, I have created a color gradient in a layer fx (see image) - now I want to copy that gradient somehow or ideally make it a swatch/global gradient. But I don't see how. Thanks in advance, Stefan.
  18. In revising my AD color palette I see no way to delete multiply swatches (entire sections of individual swatches). Am I missing something?
  19. Don't know if any one has run into this, but when going back and forth between two canvases I would use the colour picker tool, grab a colour to use, but upon going to my second canvas to use said colour the swatches swaps out to a different colour. Is there a way to stop this from happening so that I can keep the selected colours and swatches as I use them across the different canvases?
  20. Want to use a vector brush? Want to use a specific color with your vector brush? Want to use a specific color that you carefully created and saved to your Swatches library? Too bad! Please add the ability to choose swatches within the color menus of the vector brush and pencil tools. Thanks!
  21. I've searched around and while I see people asking about this, doesn't seem like there's any kind of formal request for this feature so here's one. Essentially it's what the title says, please add the ability to create, edit and apply global colour swatches in illustrations and designs done on the iPad. Global colours are a fundamental part of vector design and illustration, the need for this is vital! Right now the only workaround is to create them on the desktop and then open the file on the iPad, but this has limitations besides not being able to edit the swatches on the device it
  22. Hello: I've been using Affinity photo off-and-on for about a year now and still can't figure out how to place the black/white swatches on the front working space. I have to open the swatches panel to get to the black/white swatches. I'd like to add them to the tools panel so I can easily access them when using masks, etc. I recall seeing a screen shot of an Affinity Photo user's setup that had the b/w swatches on the working space so I know it can be done! Help! Also lest I forget! Please consider a "dissolve" blend mode! I use that mode all the time (ps cc) to help with color
  23. 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
  24. When I replied to this, I thought a bit more about the way color swatches work atm. I just don't think there is a need for a color swatch that is not "connected" to the objects that are using it. If I change a color swatch, I want to change all the objects that use it. InDesign does it this way, and it makes sense. I know that Illustrator does have "unconnected" swatches as well as "global" swatches -- but I never understood the reason for that. If there's a use case for "non-connected" swatches, please let me know I believe any such use should still be possible with "connected" sw
  25. In the colour studio, I've added colours to a document swatch. How do I change them please? So say I wanted to change the dark blue in the illustration to something more turquoise.. how do I do this? The three bar menu only sports "Add current fill to palette". If I tap-hold on the colour it only brings up "Delete" and "Rename". I tried dragging the circles, but they don't budge, and I can't think where else I can tap on.
