HKS spot colours in Designer 1.4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've been looking into Affinity Designer (and the FAQs etc.) for only 2 days, so the question may seem very simple.

Is there a way of using HKS spot colours in Designer 1.4? I managed to import them as .ASE files from Illustrator and they show up in the colour swatches panel. The only thing is they are not spot colours any more but CMYK separated, and I can't find a convenient way of undoing this. (Yes, I did export the spot colour versions from AI, not the process colour ones ;-)).


Thanks a lot

import the .pdf from Illustrator an add the colours separately to the doc.

This worked at my system.

I created an .eps from the HKS Creative Toool and converted it in Illustrator to .pdf.

It would also work to export from HKS Creative Toool directly to Illustrator and then via .pdf to Affinity
