    has the latest update included this fix, I still see yellow unless I use the colour management fix and it knocks the colours out when I view items from other programmes

    We are currently validating the fixes with few of our customers and hopefully we will release it soon. Meanwhile please feel free to use this build for your regular work. 23.0.1 has guaranteed file format compatibility with version 23.0 so it will not be an issue even when you share files.
    Also our prerelease program is open so feel free to suggest this build to others.

    Thank you for the apology. Hope to see the build issued as a regular update soon as well.

    I had to uninstall both Illustrator AND InDesign now...and wasted precious time with trying to fix bugs. Hey Adobe! Maybe you should BUG TEST your software before you give it to us to test for you!

    I will work with version 22.1 in the meantime. This is inadmissible.

    We are currently working over this issue. As a workaround you can set sRGB IEC61966-2.1 as default in your system.
    Follow the below steps-

    1. Go to Control Panel of system
    2. Search for Color management.
    3. Click on Add.
    4. Select sRGB IEC61966-2.1.
    5. Now set this profile as default.

    Emulate Illustrator 6,0 will likely give you more problems than it will solve. It turns off color management and will give you unexpected colors when you export or copy from documents with these settings.

    Emulate 6.0 works great, thanks! At least it's a quick fix until Adobe provides a lasting solution.
