Affinity Designer 1.6 – Spot Color Used in Crop Marks

Recommended Posts

Hello,

after updating to AD 1.6 I have noticed that when I export the PDF file with crop marks, I can see in Adobe Acrobat Pro in Output preview strange "Pantone 7460 C" spot color. This color is not used anywhere in the document, it's just used in the crop marks and filename label. I would like to send the file to commercial printer, but they don't accept spot colors when printing in standard CMYK.

 

Do you have any idea how to get rid of the spot color that is not used anywhere in the document and use standard black for crop marks?

Thanks!

After more testing and extensive exporting, I have found a tiny element which contained the Pantone spot color. Once removed, the crop marks were again set back to black.

So the issue is resolved :-)

 

It would be however nice to have Separation preview view mode where all CMYK and spot colors are clearly visible.
