    Hi everyone. I'm not having much luck finding an answer to this question so I'm hoping one of you ran into the same problem and can help me out.

    I wanted to save my company colors to a palette all on its own so I don't have to type in the CMYK values every single time. So I did that and saved it as an Adobe Stock Exchange (ASE) file so I can import it into InDesign as well. Using this new palette, when I assign something a CMYK color in Illustrator, the color is ALWAYS off. Not by much, but they need to be spot on. This only occurs when I assign something a CMYK value in Illustrator. The PMS color and RGB values are correct and InDesign seems to be fine. It's only CMYK in Illustrator.

    Anyone had this problem?

    Is your color space in Illustrator set to CMYK (needs to be checked on doc creation, before you start designing in color mode under Advanced top or under File > Document color mode.
    You shouldn't change that setting after you start.

      Yep! Color mode is in CMYK.

        Are you on Creative Cloud? If so, just use the shared libraries. You can store your colors, character styles, paragraph styles, graphics, logos and what not. That's what I do.

          "Off" compared to what? Are you saying they look off, or do you mean the actual CMYK values are different than you assigned when you originally saved them?
