    Default RGB values different in P&GD and WDP

    I've done a logo design in Photo&Graphic Designer 16.4 using CMYK colours for print.
    I'm also converting the logo to RGB for web use.
    In P&GD rgb values are shown as percentages not as values from 0-255 and are not correct!
    In WPD 17, the colour editor shows values from 0-255 and the CMYK equivalents are correct - I've checked them in Affinity Designer.
    Surely there must be a way of showing correct 0-255 values in P&GD???
    Please see attachments below.

    Different programs use different methods and percentages to simulate the same color. CMYK has a much more limited number of colors than RGB.

    On the Options > Units TAB change the colour units from PERCENT to 0-255

    Yip - know that, but doing commercial printing and client wanted to be sure of the final colours
