  1. 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. And then I can only change it in THAT dialogue, but not this one. A lot of things seem too clever by half in Publisher but colour handling is a serious fault in an otherwise pretty good app.
  2. 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!
  3. 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 itself. For example if you apply a global to an object, the swatches panel will not indicate in any way that the colour is apply to the object, unlike in the desktop where you can see the swatch highlighted. Thanks!
  4. 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 editing. It is divine for cleaning errant color blobs. Too, is there a way to import PS CC LUTS to AP? I am a hobbyist and have been using the GIMP, PS (since cs6) and now Affinity Photo for just about ten years now; I really like Affinity Photo and encourage everyone I can to give it a shot. I've worked with PSP, Krita and Inkscape; also Raw Therapee and Dark Table but mostly to explore and better understand images, lights/darks and color. Thanks much Silver711
  5. 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
  6. 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" swatches only. So all the swatches should behave as if they were a "global swatch". Or do "global swatches" have additional features that I haven't found out yet?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Updated to 1.8.4 today. Opened a document I was working on. The Swatches palette has a weird bug where the list of colours overlaps the palette selector dropdown. My carefully created set of colours for this document are now inaccessible. After trying the click the dropdown, it simply disappeared, and there doesn't seem to be any way to get it back. If I select "Add Document Palette" or "Add System Palette" the colours vanish, the dropdown is there but doesn't do anything, as it appears I can't switch between palettes any more. Related: There ought to be a way to auto-generate an "All colours used in this document" palette... Screenshot attached.
  10. It was recently suggested that I create s single post showing all of the free resources we have made available via https://affinity.graphics as some were never announced here and some folks still don't know about Affinity.Graphics for finding resources. We just updated the site a bit and released 2 more free resources there, so stop by and check things out. You can find DSV's offerings directly at our Affinity.Graphics User Page. Attached are promo images of everything we've released to date. Enjoy!

  11. As yet I have not found any way to group swatches, like we can have sublayers under a top layer. This would be very useful when one has so many swatches that one has to scroll to find them. Up to now I simply put is a "title swatch" (a color I do not use) and make an artificial heading for swatches that are common to that part of my work. A group-type approach to swatches would be great.
  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. 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
  14. Would it be possible to append the swatches and brushes palettes akin to the assets category? This would allow sub-grouping and make organisation much cleaner when dealing with large assets. Also including an 'add from selection' fill/line for swatches would be welcome. This could possibly facilitate sub-categories being auto-created and named if the selected swatches are already grouped (see Swatches2.png). My lo-tech solution (adding extra No-fill swatches in Swatches1.png) to get logical colour-grouping is time consuming and i often resort to just creating a specific layer for swatches, then having to cut/paste into a new document if i want that same palette again.
  15. Based on https://material.io/guidelines/style/color.htmlI created swatches for Affinity with all Material Design colors, properly named nad sorted. Enjoy Material.zip
  16. I'm using Affinity Designer 1.8.3.641 and noticed a small issue with swatches showing as "selected. The swatch panel can be in fill or stroke mode depending on which icon is in the foreground. Switching between them doesn't show the selected swatch for a particular object's fill/stroke. Example: - I have an object with a black fill and white stroke. - If the swatch panel is in fill mode, the black swatch appears selected (white square around that swatch). - If I change the swatch panel to stroke mode, the black swatch it still selected. - To get it to show that the white swatch is selected I have to click off of the object, then click back onto it. This all has to occur while the swatch panel is in stroke mode.
  17. It would be very helpful to have the same swatches as one has in the main Swatch Panel appear in both the Text Frame swatch option and the Gradient Effect as a swatch panel. I realize that this is asking a lot but if possible it would help work flow.
  18. So I've been wondering when and if you guys are going to add the ability to convert an image into a swatch. I understand how to do repeat patterns in designer but as a Fashion Designer the ability to make an image then convert it to a swatch then use that swatch to fill my clothing designs would be a god send the amount of time alone I would save is beyond measure. It's one of the few features I feel are a MUST be added to your program.
  19. 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 soon.
  20. AP Color sliders can be changed to see the reference RGB Hex #. My question: Is there a way in Swatches Panel to type the known Hex values to add the color to the Swatches Palette? This is a very simple process in Procreate Swatches to add colors to the Swatches Palette. Type Hex number, click color and it's added, maximum 30 per Swatches Palette.
  21. I add a new photo AP. I go to Color, Swatches,, and Add Document Palette, nothing happens. Am I wrong to suggest the colors from the open photo would be added as swatches? If wrong, how can you obtain photo colors to add to swatches, other then color picker one by one.
  22. If you make a copy of a global color the new color will have the exact same name as the original. This causes all sorts of problems since no two swatches should have the same name. Steps to reproduce: Create a new global color in the Swatches panel, notice the name Right click it and choose Make Copy Check the name of the new global color, it's the exact same as the original Strangely, this does not happen to regular colors. If you make a copy of a regular color the app will always change the copy's name. Thanks!
  23. Is there a way to click on an object within your artwork and have the swatches palette show you which color is actively selected? I want to build out a colors list and then know which color I’m working with when I select an object I’ve added to my artwork. I use a collection of Montana spray paints and need to know which colors to buy after I’ve designed the artwork.
  24. It would be nice to delete multiple swatches at once by shift-clicking them and pressing delete. Right now I have to do it one by one and then be asked if I want to really delete the swatch. This is way too tedious.
  25. If you right-click a swatch and make a copy, then rename the copy, you have two swatches of the same color. AFPUB does not respect their name differences. When you apply the second swatch to an object, and then come back to that object later, it will have reverted to the original swatch and name since the two swatches have the same HSL - the swatch becomes highlighted when you select an object - the wrong swatch. This is a bit problematic if you wish to, say, assign #one swatch to section one of the document and assign #two swatch to section two of the document. The idea would be to come back later and change the colors of section two via editing the second swatch (the copy). It seems that you have to make a slight HSL change so that the objects don't confuse AFPUB by having the same HSL values. Essentially, this means you have to create a new colour swatch for section two that is not a complete duplicate of swatch #1. Screen recording: two picture objects, a single color swatch is used on each. Copy that swatch to make a duplicate. Assign duplicate swatch to second item. Select first object - uses original swatch. Select second object - original swatch is highlighted. Swatch copy is ignored and not used since it is entirely a duplicate. I would prefer to have an object keep the same swatch that was assigned and not revert to another with the same settings. Swatch Reverts.mov
