Selections from a CMYK document copied to clipboard are very low resolution

Recommended Posts

Open/create a document with a good resolution and cymk. 3750x2550px @ 600 dpi in my case. 

create a pixel layer with something on it.

select a portion of the layer and copy it. 

switch to another application and paste.

It looks like a scaled up thumbnail instead of the actual image copied.

pasting within affinity works fine.

both copy and copy merged give the same low res output.

Hi @MEB, I am having a similar problem, in my case it doesn't matter what the colour format or dpi is. If I copy from any of the Affinity apps and paste in something like Pages the result is a very low res PDF. My clipboard contents always show text at the bottom, but nothing actually shows in the window

I have reported this in the Publisher Forum because I thought to was linked to another problem.

I don't know if the problem is related to this one, but it might help to get to the bottom of it for you.

I discovered the problem when I was pasting from Photo to change a Folder Icon in Finder, it had always worked well but something has changed in Affinity.
