  1. In Illustrator I can convert a whole palette to Pantone/spot color. Is there a way to do the same in Affinity Designer? The only option I have found to convert the whole image palette to spot color is to convert each color separately, which is very time consuming. Thank you.
  2. I am able to save an image in grayscale (.TIF) format in Adobe Photoshop. Then place it into InDesign and change the color to any spot color by selecting the image with the Direct Selection Tool. Is that action possible with Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher? I have attempted to duplicate the action, and it does not seem to work. Thank you!
  3. I'm combining vector shapes and vector brushes, both colored with the same spot color. After the export to PDF, the spot color is preserved in vector shapes with fills and basic strokes only. Vector brushes with textured strokes are still translated in to CMYK colors. Is this bug or missing feature?
  4. When adding a Spot Global color using latest AD beta, for example via Pantone Goe Coated swatch palette, then selecting Add Global Color… from the hamburger menu in the upper right, brings up the Global Color Picker/Palette, where instead of inheriting the name of the spot color from the Pantone library, it's renamed to Global Color 1, which is not so useful for production environment. How about leaving the original color's name and adding Global Color 1 after a dash – "Pantone XYZ – Global Color 1" or something like that
  5. HI I am looking on how create a file with spot color (Pantone color) to fill an area at some percentage or with gradient and save in PDF/PDF X4 preserving each color as a separate layer with own opacity. Thank you for any info Sergio
  6. Would be nice, if the overprinting property could be selected object-wise and not globally over the color swatch. When you do artworks for RISO it happens that you layer objects of the same spot color and some should overprint and some not. Of course, I can add a second spot color but the problem is that I get duplicated colors in the pdf later on which leads to some pain combining them for printing. B
  7. Hallo, ich habe ständig Probleme beim Exportieren von Schmuckfarbe mit Graustufen. Ist da was bekannt, kann mir jemand weiterhelfen ? Danke maritim
  8. I have a document that has grayscale images and when I export it as a PDF X/4 the images are CMYK. I open it in Acrobat and preview the images to see this. I have a black spot color set and the vector object are just black. What is a solution to this problem?
  9. I would wish for a way to preview color separation without the need to use Adobe software or other commercial third party software. Another solution could be a new application from Affinity for this purpose. Ralf Maeder
  10. I am a former graphics designer and worked 15 years ago in PrePress. Nowerdays I still use Macromedia Freehand on Windows for occasional design work and recently purchased Affinity Photo and Designer. I was looking at the options related to spot colors and noticed that once I created a random color, I can't change this color to be a spot color. In order to create a custom spot color, I have to mark the "spot" box in the color creation tab the moment I create the color. This makes it tedious if the decision to use spot colors is made later on in the design process. Another issue is how to check or preview correct color separation in respect to spot colors? The reason I chose Affinity as my main tools is because I want to avoid the use of Adobe applications at all cost. Freehand can print separations, which can be saved as PDF and previewed without any third party software. What do you recommend as a workflow for Affinity Designer user in order to check separations of spot colors, but without the need to use costly third party software? Ralf Maeder.
  11. Hello, after updating to AD 1.6 I have noticed that when I export the PDF file with crop marks, I can see in Adobe Acrobat Pro in Output preview strange "Pantone 7460 C" spot color. This color is not used anywhere in the document, it's just used in the crop marks and filename label. I would like to send the file to commercial printer, but they don't accept spot colors when printing in standard CMYK. Do you have any idea how to get rid of the spot color that is not used anywhere in the document and use standard black for crop marks? Thanks! Petr
  12. In Affinity Designer (1.4) it is possible to convert a global color to a spot color. So far so good, but how do I convert a spot color back to it’s normal state, to a non-spot color? You can edit the color, but not it’s state of being a solid color or not. I know that you can "honor spot colors" when you export to a PDF for print, but sometimes it’s important to convert a spot color to a non-spot color when you just want some colors to be spot colors when you export a PDF for printing. Thanks in advance for all tips and hints.
  13. Hi I have problem. How to convert global spot swatch to proces. I can't find any options in swatches panel. Thanks and regards, Robert
  14. I've been using Affinity nearly daily since designer was still in beta, and there is only one crucial thing I'm missing. We print using an industrial UV printer that utilizes spot white ink, and in the past (with adobe photoshop) I needed to create a new channel called 'spot white' and export the document as a PDF document. Then the rip software would recognize this 'spot white' channel and know to print white where indicated. As of now, I'm still exporting from designer or photo and then adding the white with photoshop. It's a very tedious process that loses me several hours a week. I've tried many times to achieve the same results from affinity designer and affinity photo with spot colors or attempting to add a new channel. Am I missing something, or is this simply a feature that affinity software isn't capable of at the moment?
  15. Hello I was just wondering if there is a way for me to set spot colors on my swatches panel?
