Hello. When opening Illustrator files in Affinity Designer, i would like to keep the spot colors. If i open an Illustrator-.eps file in Affinity Designer, the Pantone color is automatically changed into cmyk. When opening an Illustrator-.ai or -.pdf file in Affinity Designer, the Pantone color is maintained as spot color. Does this have something to do with my color settings or is this a general problem with .eps files? Thanks in advance for advice.
as described already in another thread here, i am encountering (strange?) problems with colors in both designer and photo, especially for cymk-colours. they kind of 'burn out' and are far too vibrant, so theres no way working with because they not nearly match whats expected. rgb seems quite right to me so far, but i have to use both affinitys mainly for cymk-workflows regarding print. so i have some questions that may be answered to get a grip on this and hopefully find a way towards a solution. 1. there are two options for rgb-profiles, one is called 'rgbu' - what do they exaclty refer to, and what is the difference between them regarding the use within affinity. more simple: why there are two? 2. is there any way, affinity works different regarding color-management than other applications like the adobe ones or corel does? the reason behind this is: the latter seems to do it right and (cymk-) colors are more or less close on screen - but not so in AF, although the profiles are set consistend and are the same thoughout all applications. 3. normally i would assume, all applications are using the screen-profiles that are defined in settings within OS - or win7 in this case. that means: every application uses this (in this case custom calibrated) profile as a basis to render according to the profiles set within the application itself... any other thing for affinity? so what is completely driving me nuts is the fact, that i cant get affinity to show only slightly correct colors for cymk... and i dont have any clue why. the awful thing is, that when emulating a srgb-space on my wide-gammut-monitors it seems to work far better, but i cant believe affinity wont be able to handle wide-gammut spaces... affinity (at least designer) is buildt to use for design & graphics of course. and while print is (still) some great part of that i believe that one should be able to work within cymk without that hassle and be able to get a correct color-preview on screen even for that. right? so the question to me is whats going wrong in that case??? is it affinity? is it me? is it another hard- or software? currently i am running out of ideas, but i have to solve this! any hints and thoughts highly appreciated and thanks in advance if more info is needed please be so kind and simply ask for it :-)
