Checking colours in Preflight prior to sending a document to press

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there is a way to check the colour like Output Separation Preview from InDesign. It seems in Designer's Preflight, it just indicates many other issues but I never see anything for colour. I did a test with one of my client's project which is grayscale and one spot colour. I need to verify that all of attached images, vector file, fonts etc are 100% Black or a spot colour and not a CMYK (rich black).

Hi @TanyaTand Welcome to the Forums,

None of the Affinity apps currently have a way to Preview colour separations.  So you would need to use a 3rd party for this type of work.

We have had a number of requests to add colour separations preview and other colour checking tools, so this might come in a future build.

Thanks. That would be great if this can be added to Affinity. I am looking for a 3rd party for colour separation (for Mac) - any recommendations?


Please! I am suffering when checking colors before printing. Sometimes I do an error and leave CMYK color instead of Pantone, because it is basicslly not possible to figure out 😭😭😭 I used Adobe for preflight checks, but it is annoying to pay a licence just for that…
