I'm creating some signage today and would like to make these in Designer, however I cant figure out how to make my cutter guides/shapes and fold lines as a spot colour, so the printer can see its not CYMK for production.

Generally I make these in illustrator and mark the layer **Do Not Print** for the printers attention. So my question is can spot colour be done in Designer at the moment?

Hi David

 

We do have spot colours in Designer. you can create a spot colour by switching to the swatches tab and expanding the menu in the top right of the tab. From there click Add Global Colour. This will bring up a colour selector which will have to option to make it a spot colour.

 

hope that is what you are looking for

 

Cheers

Ah I could kiss you both!

Obviously I need to stop drawing rocket ships and monsters and nail theses things. Thanks Both saved me trip back to the dark side today.

I was looking for a check field when clicking the slider colour wheel options to convert existing colours to a spot or indeed global. possible a nice usability option to add?

Never stop drawing rocket ships and monsters I say!!  :D

 

But yeah I like the sound of at least being able to add global colours from the Colour Chooser. I'll pass it on
