Swatch CMYK %0% colour darker than 100%

Recommended Posts

When one creates a 50% tint in CMYK, the swatch panel shows it as darker than the original colour - which feels like RGB behaviour.

Reported during beta phase but not seen a response - or a suggestion as to how to avoid this.

You made a suggestion (feature request) earlier, and bundled several items together, including this one. It would probably have gotten a Serif response if you'd reported this one as a bug then, or put it in a post of its own. But reporting it as a bug would have been better.

Yep, the same question. When you have black UI, your transparencies show darker than the parent color. Not perhaps intuitive but logical, and if there is no list view (where you can see T and A percentages), perhaps this tells the difference more logically?

The same palette with lighr gray background UI

Sorry to have been a long time replying, Ive been away  -- Pauls is quite right. Using the dark workspace has some (logical) side effects when working with colour.
Thanks for your response  Pauls
