At this time, Pixelmator Pro supports RGB editing only. We don't really have any plans for these features as we're focusing on somewhat different areas but this is on the feature request list and every voice does influence us at least a little.

By the way, you can convert to CMYK and grayscale in certain formats during the export stage, but could you let me know a little more about your workflow in PS using this feature? What kind of things would you be looking to do in Pixelmator Pro?

Hey there, I'm guessing you might need to work directly in BW and CMYK — i.e. set colors not in RGB (or CMYK converted to RGB), but specify exact CMYK values, right? Is so, supporting that kind of workflow isn't currently on our roadmap, but you can use soft proofing to proof your designs for those color spaces and, while exporting, convert them to those color spaces, which gets you pretty much the same functionality.
