Colour values change on their own! Very frustrating
Colours keep slightly changing over time, even as I am designing live inside a file!
I will enter an exact CMYK or RGB value to match our brands colours, then these values will change slightly all on their own.
I've been monitoring this for about 2 months now hoping this issue would be resolved in an update... but it hasnt been!
This is a massive issue! Colours have to be stable!
We need to be able to trust the program with things that are vital for a brand, like their COLOURS!
The attached image shows -
Top: is the original version of the design with correct colour values
Bottom: shows the change in colour and colour values a few mins later (still live in file, no save/close)
Also - I'm not copy pasting between CMYK / RGB files.
This colour change is happening to elements that never leave the file / colour profile they were created in.
Yes, Ive never seen this happen before either - 20+ years using Adobe
Yes, colours change live while working on a file. I tested this by checking a colour breakdown.. continued to design in the file without closing.. then going back to check colour breakdown about 30 mins later. So weird.
To add to this - Working on a file, save close. reopen file and work, colours change again, save close. Ive had elements sitting off to the side of a document that I havnt touched in weeks/months and you can see a massive change over time to the colours of these elements. Its like every time I open the file the colours change slightly, and aginf the next open, and again.. till its radically diferent. See attached img, this element has been sitting on the side of my document for the last 6 weeks, look at the change in colour.
I've never seen this happen in a live file without copying or changing color modes, so I'm actually curious to how this happening to you while only working on a live file. Does this happen if you make the color a swatch or is it only when you pick a from the color picker?
Just a guess as to what might be happening. I noticed you are working in RGB and CMYK color spaces between documents. If you happen to switch between RGB and CMYK documents it will change the color values as CMYK has a smaller color gamut. Meaning if you select an RGB value and then switch to a CMYK document or copy to it then it will convert it to CMYK values within its gamut as it can't technically show those RGB values in CMYK.
