In Illustrator I can convert a whole palette to Pantone/spot color. Is there a way to do the same in Affinity Designer? The only option I have found to convert the whole image palette to spot color is to convert each color separately, which is very time consuming.

Thank you.

Hi Sdrum :)

Unfortunately there's not currently an option to convert a whole palette to be spot colours currently, each colour has to be done individually. I'll move this thread to feature requests for our devs to consider adding in a future update!

How can you convert ANY existing colour into a Spot colour? Seems to me you can only set an existing colour to become Overprint.  Spot colours need to be set up at the start as Global colours - unless I've (hopefully) missed something.

Can't you just use the Colour Picker from the window which pops up when you select Add Global Colour and then just choose a colour you already have in the document? You just check the Spot checkbox. Or am I missing something?
