I made a design using Gravit.io with a distinct blue color. When I use the eye drop selector - or copy and paste the HEX code - in AD it comes out a different blue. Try as I might, I can't figure out how to configure the color settings to match the original. The color's hex code: #0061FD

Any tips/tricks?

Thank you!

 

This is the blue from Gravit.

This is how it shows in Designer:

Thanks very much, Palatino. I know how to switch between RGB and CMYK here (right?):

I tried switching to it and using the eye dropper again, but same result. And I don't see a place for CMYK hex codes. What am I missing?

Given that CMYK values are (whole number) percentages, why would you expect to use hex codes? :/

I'm pretty new to the world of graphic design. 😔

 Can you help me reproduce the blue I created in Gravit in Affinity Designer? So far it sounds like I need to be using the CMYK mode...

Your blue is shown in CMYK color mode as long as your document color mode is CMYK. If you want to see the bright RGB based blue, you need to change your document color mode to RGB.

EDIT: Note though that if you intend to produce your job also in CMYK mode, you should keep the document in CMYK color mode. You can still produce RGB versions of it that show your original bright blue in RGB mode, and its CMYK converted less saturated version when producing CMYK output.
