Hello my Friends,

I hope that HKS will be included in future in Affinity software alongside Pantone. For time being, I've prepared CMYK versions of HKS colour systems for coated (K) and uncoated (N) papers (download attached *.afpalette files). HKS 98 & HKS 99 are gold and silver (same in both). 

Why? Lots of printers in Europe are using HKS, i.e. Saxoprint and others.

Hi, on another thread we were talking about spot colour palettes and how to do them from text files like .csv Perhaps you can do this if you've got the values in some tables/sheets.

If you look in the Resources/Pantone folder of an Affinity application (on Windows), and open the "PANTONE Plus CMYK Coated.csv" file, you'll have an example with RVB and CMYK values.
