I'm on a brand new MacBook Pro and I'm using illustrator from the cloud version 26.0.2 on Mac Monterey v 12.1. Every time I close out a file and reopen it the hex colors are changed. I have never touched the setting on my colors. I've attached an example below. You can see that when I was previously working in the file I listed the hex code, but now when I open it it is different. Please help. This is making my branding impossible and I'm turning in projects incorrectly as a result.2 votesResolved (Comments Open) · 2 comments · Colors, Swatches, Patterns · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
(Illustrator 2022) Open a new CMYK file, create a box, color Breakdown "87-75-0-0 "select the same CMYK color Breakdown "87-75-0-0 " (In Color Picker) that is clearly showing a darker color then what is behind the open select box.

Open a new CMYK file in Illustrator (2021). Same process as above, now CMYK colors appear correct.1 vote
If this happens for you, make sure you have the same color settings setup in both versions (Edit > Color Settings).
Please allow there to be an option on the eyedropper tool to select multiple fills on appearances to apply to another object. Example; with pattern design, we create a top transparent pattern than a second fill with a solid color to create the final pattern. We would like to be able to easily apply those two fills to another object1 vote
You can open Eyedropper tool’s options (double-click tool icon or hit Enter while the tool is active) and check both Appearance ticks to force it to pick and apply all appearance items, including multiple fills.
Make New Swatch always available, not only when the Fill Color is active.1 vote
Your New swatch option is disabled since the Stroke Color is set to None. New swatch functionality by default takes the current color.
If you apply some color to Stroke, the option will get enabled, similarly if you change Fill to None, it will be disabled for Fill as well.
Hope This helps.
When I open up a file using the open with option inside of Windows explorer, my swatches are always empty no matter what panel I'm using. Colors panel, etc. The only way it doesn't seem to have this bug is if I'm inside of Adobe Illustrator and I open a file from inside of the program. This is very inconvenient.1 vote
This is working as expected. You have opened a png file and since a png file will not have Illustrator swatches it does not show up.
If you create a new Illustrator file will then see Illustrator swatches. Once you have created a new Illustrator file you can place the png file inside it.

Please use FFFFFF for white
Copying and pasting a pattern filled object or text, especially when pasting into a new document, should not shift the pattern. This causes many issues when passing files to others.0 votes
Generally this behavior is controlled by the option, Preferences > General > Transform Pattern Tiles.
However the positioning of a pattern inside of an object is controlled by the origin point of a specific document, the 0,0 position on rulers, which may differ in different documents. Ai recalculates local coordinates on paste, preserving the look of the pattern, but if you change the origin later, the pattern will shift.
Please comment back if toggling this option does not work for you.
