Resolved issues

The following technical issues have been resolved in GMG OpenColor Please note that the list describes the problem, not the solution.

Linear gradation
On updated OpenColor systems it was not possible to save gradation curves, they were reset to linear curves. [01297, 01389, 01574]

Empty ink names after import
After importing an OpenColor project, some inks selected from the spot color databases, were displayed as blank rows. [01359]

Wrong DotProof Profile output
The output of MXN-based ColorProof Jobs was wrong, as far as two black channels in the image were mapped to a single channel in the profile. [01346]


End of life

Please note that we will no longer provide bug fixes, maintenance releases, workarounds, or patches for bugs found in GMG OpenColor or older.
