CMYK Color Profiles

Further improvements from our last update, you can now select a color profile to use for onscreen CMYK conversion, or upload your own ICC color profile.

Color profiles controls the way that CMYK colors appear on your monitor, giving you a close representation of how it will look when printed.

For more information, please see the Color Profiles article here.

PDF Filename in Web Export

When enabling the PDF download button for web export, the PDF's filename will now match the documents filename. For example, if your documents filename is ReleaseNotes.xar, the PDF filename will be ReleaseNotes.pdf 

Selector Tool Handle Visibility

Selecting very small objects previously caused certain resize handles to not appear at 100% zoom (or, depending on the object, at an even greater zoom). We've improved this by showing the resize handles at all zoom levels, no matter how small the object is.
