Vector element convert from color CMYK to CMYK only black

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i was wondering if Affinity Designer has possibility to convert vector elements (selecting by layers) from color CMYK (or RGB) to CMYK but only in black K. I have to prepare black and white maps for printing and file is in CMYK with all colors, but lines are in greyscale. So to have better quality i have to change CMYK colors only for K (black). I can't find information about this at web page.

I'm using Affinity Photo as Photoshop alternative - and it is really good for my needs.

Thank you!

If you go to the Colour panel you can just set 100 K (black)

Select CMYK from Document > Colour Format

Thank you for answer. But it is possible to use this tool for whole layer or selection, becouse i have maps with lot of single elements? Or maybe multichange for selected color?

An element is a layer.  Every item you create is on it's own layer.

 

If you select all the objects (layers) you can change the colours in one go.

it souds clear for me. Thank you! But,  I was wondering if there is a limit for a quantity of layers, becouse my map has hundreds of elements... I'm including file with small part of the map for better understanding.

AD tends to convert black vector shapes to C89M78Y62K97. That is annoying when K100 is what is needed. I don't know if there is some workflow solution which would convert black right.

That would not be such a problem if there were already "select by attribute" feature available.
