Bug when printing color overlays?


Recommended Posts

I made a commission for someone and it looked fine on multiple monitors. But going to print, the colors changed a lot. The eyes suddenly became purple. I narrowed this particular issue down to the way color overlays are handled. I feel rasterizing the document will fix this, but this is a serious problem.

I disabled color management in printer and chose software handling, with the color profile loaded from the manufacturer. Relative colometric. The deep purple was made a lot lighter, but then the totally colorless gray eyes were turned purple.

I also had issues making prints on other printers. Can anyone tell me what's going on?

EDIT - This is happening in Designer, not Publisher. Can this be moved?

In the PNG image that you posted (the topmost one) the eyes are not neutral grey but have a slight colour (purplish(?)). I don't know if the same is true for the Designer document.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.2 
Affinity Designer 2.3.1 | Affinity Photo 2.3.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.3.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

The difference is pretty stunning. There is a purple color overlay, but the color is very subtle in the digital result. The printed purple is screaming. Also, the digital has much deeper, richer colors than the final print. I use overlays quite heavily to guide the colors, and there seems to be issues when sending vector art to printers. The overlays just break and don't do what you expect.
