Hi there!

 

I copied and pasted a rectangle from one document in Affinity designer to another, and noticed the color looked different. To affinity, both show the same HEX code of ACEEE7 with the same specifications, but it's clear that they're different colors. What's going on here and how to fix it?

 

I assume it's related, I've also noticed the color picker has recently taken a different hue of the color I'm taking.

 

Attached are screenshots.

Check the documents’ colour profiles. I think you’ll find that they’re not the same.

That did it - thanks! Any reason this would happen automatically or accidentally so that I can prevent it from happening again.

 

Thanks!

It will happen any time the initial setup is different (e.g. if one document has been created for the Web rather than print, or if you're importing from a source such as PDF or SVG).

Ah, makes sense. Any way to set everything in the future to one profile? Like a default setting?

 

Thanks again!

All of the apps should remember the last used setting for new documents, but I think I saw a thread recently where it was reported that one or other of the Mac versions didn't do this; I'm not sure whether this was AD or APh, or whether it related to the retail version or a beta version.
