  1. Affinity Photo Reset individual included Swatches to Default. For example one may want to reset Greys or Colors or Gradients to default after adding those that you no longer need.
  2. Could we please have a tint slider in Swatches in addition to opacity.
  3. I keep color swatch books for all my clients. Coming from Adobe, I can just create a swatch collection for each client and upload to Creative Cloud. Then when I need to work on something for that client I simply load their folder and have all my swatches ready to use. I thought I could do the same thing with Affinity's Palette system, but I am running into issues. In order for a Palette to be available to all Affinity programs, I have to make System Palettes. It works, except when it comes to saving Spot colors (I need a set of Pantone colors). When I try to save a Pantone swatch in the System palette, the swatch gets saved to a new Document palette instead. This does me no good because next time I start a new document, I have to go looking for all the swatches. Furthermore, I cannot make them Global. Am I missing something? Or will I have to create an Application palette each time and export that to import into the other 2 programs every time? That will get annoying if I have to update their color schemes down the road.
  4. Dear Team! So far, I do love your apps :-) One thing I would love to see is a common color swatch/palette management. In other words, having one common color palette database used by all the programs would help to keep consistency. Maybe that's somehow possible in future versions. Cheers, Chris
  5. 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
  6. I noticed that sometimes swatches on swatch panel doesn't show correct color. It seems like it shows raw color without document profile applied (CMYK workspace). Please see screencast and file with that problem. swatch bug.afdesign Swatch preview bug.mov
  7. Hope AD will provide vector based pattern | swatches. I like my fills sharp and crisp.
  8. Hi, I'm new to Affinity, enjoying it a lot, still much to discover. Is there a shortcut to reset the black and white swatches? cheers Geoffrey
  9. Analogous chord created with missing color as the base color is duplicated. Steps: Create new document: Type: web Units: Pixels Color Format: RGB/8 W: 1280 px Height: 800 px DPI: 96 Draw a Rectangle (I made it a square) and fill with base color; then duplicate object 2 times. Base color: R: 200 G: 35 B: 35 / H: 0 S: 70 L: 46 From Swatches tab: Create palette from document > as application palette Under Swatches tab: Delete the 2 created fills From Color tab: Create Color Chord > Analogous Result: Created palette swatch: R: 200 G: 35 B: 35 / Shows as H: 0 S: 70 L: 46 2 (duplicated Base color, should be new color 1) R: 200 G: 118 B: 35 / Shows as H: 0 S: 70 L: 46 (Base color) R: 200 G: 35 B: 35 / Shows as H: 0 S: 70 L: 46 (new color 2) Reference: I was following this tutorial on YouTube: "Affinity Designer - Colour Chords" *Notes: possible regression as the person in video creates Analogues palette correctly (I don't know what version they used) I was able to create all of other 9 palette types correctly from this same video instructions. My version: 1.6.2.97 Attached: Two example files: Analogous.afdesign: Analogous2.afdesign:
  10. Why is it the set of colors different from the layers panel to the options bar?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. How to Reproduce: Create several dummy shapes Color the shapes and create swatches for some of those colors With the Swatches panel open, alternately select the shapes If the shape's fill/stroke color matches a swatch, the respective swatch appears selected in the Swatches Panel (this is good) If the shape's fill/stroke color doesn't match a swatch, the last swatch still appears selected (this is bad) How to Solve: When an object's fill/stroke color doesn't match a swatch, none of the swatches should appear selected
  14. I'd like to suggest a few improvements to the Swatches panel: Ability to convert swatches from and to normal/global/spot. For example, convert a normal swatch to global, or convert a spot to normal, and so on. Fills should automatically rename when colour is edited. For example, a fill named C:0 M:0 Y:0 K:10 should change to C:0 M:0 Y:0 K:50 if I do edit the colour to be a 50% black. Ability to group swatches into folders. Global colours names should be their values (for example C:0 M:0 Y:0 K:0) rather than "Global Colour %n" A command to select/delete all unused swatches. Perhaps create a document palette by default for any new document? A "Merge Swatches" command that works like in Illustrator Select multiple swatches at once to delete/copy them Global, overprint and spot colour indicators should be larger, they're hard to see when the swatch is selected (see attached) All these are to help us manage & identify the colours, plus correcting mistakes all designers make eventually. :P Thanks!
  15. Sort Swatches by Colour in the Swatches panel is good... But to be able to sort the swatches by Hue, Saturation or Lightness would be great and very useful. Is this possible? Please! :) :)
  16. Hi, I just noticed the following: I have several objects composited in a layer ... and I if I use my swatches in a layer fx (color overlay) to tint all objects at the same time I can choose my desired color swatch and it works fine. BUT if I change the color value of that swatch (double click on the swatch in the swatches panel) it does not influence the color used in the layer fx. If I check the color used on the layer fx, it still has the "old" values. I hope this will be fixed soon, Stefan.
  17. Hi Folks, I am new to Affinity Designer. I have 3 questions related to the swatches panel: Is there a way to resize the panel? A lot of space is wasted on swatches that only have a handful of colors. I accidentally deleted a couple swatches when I was playing around trying to remove colors from a particular swatch (note to self: "delete palette" does not mean "clear pallet"). They were default swatches. Is there a way to get them back? Is there a way to change the swatch color tooltip value from RGB to Hex (or anything else for that matter)? Thanks in advance! john
  18. I used this palette a lot so I decided to make an Afiinity version and share it if other people are interested Have fun with the color :) Original palette here DC Comics 375.afpalette
  19. There are a few things I wish would be possible with colors: - Ability to select and delete several colors at once from swatches - When one deletes a global color, the software should ask if one wants it to be replaced by another one.. so that all elements using the deleted color then become the new chosen replacement one (or at least tell the user that he's about to delete a color that is actually used in their graphic. Hope these can be implemented..
  20. Double click any swatch in the Swatches panel Switch to any of the sliders controls (RGB, CMYK, LAB, happens in all of them) if needed Place cursor on the first field (R for RGB or C for CMYK, etc...) in the flyout window Type a new number, works fine Tab to the second value (G or M, etc...), type new value, works fine Tab to the third value (B or Y, etc..), you can't type anymore I aso noticed the if you tab between like above, but without changing value, by the time you reach the third value the focus switches from the Swatches panel flyout to the application main menu at the top. Thanks!

    Another color palette: fiesta

    Just released a second color palette with support for Affinity's .afpalette format. It's a set of bright, happy colors to lighten up any illustration or design. Get it at creativemarket
  22. Unlike what happens when assigning a palette color to the filling of an object, if I assign a palette color to a colour overlay effect then I change the palette color, the objects with the assigned effect don’t change color. (Tested with Affinity Designer 1.6.0 on High Sierra)
  23. When I use the default white swatch or create one myself and save it, instead of H:0 S:100 L:100 (which appears as pure white), it saves as H:0 S:0 L:100 (which appears as off white). Step 1a: Click default white swatch or select H:0 S:100 L:100 on color wheel and save swatch. Step 1b: If user created swatch, select swatch user created. Step 2: Observe swatch is recalled as H:0 S:0 L:100 instead of H:0 S:100 L:100. PLS NOTE: HSL DATA IS SWAPPED ON THE PHOTO.

    Flatiful Color Palette

    I wanted a base palette that I could use on my illustrations, with a range of shades, and highlights/shadows for each. So I made my own: It's a good starting point for illustrations, icons & UI work. There's more than 100 swatches, nicely organized. Comes in several formats, of course .afpalette included. Grab it over at CreativeMarket!
