Hey,

I just got Adobe Illustrator CS6 and noticed when I copy a logo into a new document the colors change. 

For example...I open a logo with Pantones and then copy it into a new document, in the new document the colors were different, even though I was using Pantone colors for the logo. Has this happened to anyone else? This never happened to me using CS5, so I'm not sure if it's a CS6 thing or if there is just a setting I need to change to get it fixed. When I create the new document I made sure it's set to be CMYK, because I know that can cause issues, it's just concerning because if the colors aren't accurate that's a HUGE deal!

Thanks,
Josh

So,

I read a few solutions, most of them were to replace the color libraries. The new CS6 lab color really helps when editing pictures, but because I primarily work with graphics, I switched back to CS5 (for now)...maybe there will be a better solution in the future :)

Thanks,
Josh

Is CC any better?  Or does it work like CS6?

Does it suck when a new "improved" version has a glitch that is so stupid that you immediately want to go back to previous version? I've seen this too many times and that's the main reason I still use CS2 for most of my work :)

Arteephact, CC? What does that mean?

Admin, yes it does...I'm sticking with CS5 for now :-)

I'm not sure if the "Creative Cloud" does, but if I had to take a guess, it probably does. This is a new standard that Adobe is implementing because it is makes the colors on the screen almost exactly match colors printed commercially. However, most of us are used to the CMYK values and even if we open the documents in CS6 they will show the proper color, but if they are copied or saved in another format (a new file) it will use the new color library. I'm pretty sure if Adobe had given users a way to switch back and forth or a way to choose, this color issue would not even be a topic of discussion...but because it's being forced down our throats, that's why there's issues.
