Color values change after export

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm totally confused with colours in Affinity Designer.

The colour values not only change after export to PDF but also differs in AD document.

 

In my CMYK document (Euroscale Coated v2) I have a blue colour 61, 49, 0, 60. But when I try to change it, it differs from original. The CMYK values are the same but RGB and HSL are different.

After exporting (print PDF) blue becomes 96, 84, 35, 31.

 

The blue colour is just an example. Other colours behave the same way.

 

I'm lost.

Hi Stes,

Welcome to the forums.

 

We're aware of an issue with incorrect values being displayed and it has been passed to the developers to look into. When checking the output preview in Acrobat, make sure you also select the correct Simulation profile to match the document, the colour values should then be correct.

I have a similar issue and cannot seem to overcome it. I export to PDF from AD. When I open the PDF in AD, the colours are still 100% (74,13,2,0 as example), but as soon as the printing house opens in PDF on Acrobat, they get a different code.

 

Could it be that Acrobat sees the AD-converted PDF files differently?

I just got the same problem that colors have changed to slightly different color codes in cmyk after exporting to to pdf print.

I just don't understand why.

Are your developers are  still working on that bug?
