I have another question concerning Grayscale D50. Is it possible to obtain generic Grayscale in Designer?

Everything needs to have a working profile. The Affinity applications use D50, but iF you have some alternative Grayscale profile you'd like to use, just install it on your system and you should be able to set it as your document's profile.

On mac I have several "generic" profiles ... which I may choose in Affinity. FWIW:  Generic Gray Profile.icc   Generic Gray Gamma 2.2 Profile.icc

Yeah, but I am on Windows, and when I open that window I get only Greyscale 50. I am having a problem with printing books with that, they tell me I need generic greyscale. Can you instruct me how to install it on my system? I mean, a link for that driver. I thought it was by default on Windows. Thanks!

I have no Windows knowledge. I am sure a search for "install print profile windows" will show guiding results.

On Windows, the colour-profiles are stored under the following path: C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color

If you have different greyscale-profiles stored there, Photo should be able to find them and display them in the profile-menus, I think. But I haven't tested it yet with greyscale-profiles. All my other profiles, also the ones I added, are displayed correctly, as far as I see.

Done it! It works! It's alive! :)

Thanks!
