    Great Video @WillPaterson. I had this problem for a very long time. One thing that I want to ask you is that I use The HSB Slider & I want to know how I can use that Color setting (HSB) to make a Rich black. Is there a way Sir ??

    No matter what I do, they look the same on screen. No change at all. Why?

    Do I have to add a new swatch every time I do a project? I've tried adding a swatch for School Bus Yellow but when I open a new project it's missing.

    I may have misunderstood, but towards the end I think you said if you're doing printwork, you DON'T want it to be in CMYK. But if you aren't working in CMYK, when  you go to print it, won't the blacks look duller than on the computer? Sorry if that was confusing.

    For most printing companies yes. because you don't want to go above 350 when doing rich black! 🙂 But it really all depends on what printing service you're using 🙂

    Is 50,50,50,100 more common than 75,68,67,90? (which is what I've been using for rich black in print for a year or so now)
