Custom Color Palette & Swatch Syncing

Recommended Posts

  • 3 years later...

Hey MEB,

though this thread seems a bit dusty I have the following question: I'd like to export my colour palettes on my Mac and import them on Win so my swatches are in sync.
My problem is that the export only results in .clr files which – for me unknown reasons – can't be imported again in Affinity Photos on Windows.

Am I doing something wrong? How do I get the .afpalette format? Help would be greatly appreciated. :7_sweat_smile:

The export will be a .clr file (a Mac colours file) if the palette was created as a System Palette.

You could import the .clr files into your macOS Affinity app as Application Palette or Document Palette, and then export to get .afpallete files.


Oooh, I see! Thanks for pointing that out, you're right. I guess I created them as system palettes.

Thanks for your quick respond about this matter, owenr!

Something to have in mind for the future. :10_wink:
