    Carolina,

    The PNG file format does not support the CMYK process color model. I'd be very surprised if both your saved/exported PNG's weren't RGB images. If you need a CMYK file, you're better off using PDF or TIFF.

    As for the colors changing, that depends on how the parent file (illustrator file) is setup. Are you working in RGB or CMYK? Some transparency effects and blend modes don't translate well to CMYK. Unexpected results are common when converting from one colorspace to another, especially when transparency and blend modes are present.

    I think I see the problem areas in your example; the pinkish areas in the bottom of the image? Have you checked those vector objects for unintentional blend modes or overprints?

    JQ,

    Can you share some specific examples of others that have had / are still having this issue? I've experimented on my installation and cannot get the pathfinder divide tool to produce inaccurate results *right now* but could swear I've seen it do weird stuff in the past.

    Maybe I'm not experimenting with the right kind of vector shapes.

    William,

    It may be helpful to think of an objects main/parent opacity and its fill and stroke opacities as three separate settings, since they can all be individually adjusted in the appearance panel.

    As a workaround you can set any shape's fill to some color and then set it's fill opacity to zero in the appearance panel. A shape with this appearance setup will act like a filled shape as far as selecting by clicking anywhere within its boundary, but for visual and color blending purposes acts as if it has no fill applied.

    This may not be suitable for all circumstances wherein more complex things are required, like knockouts, blending groups, blends, meshes, or others. I haven't tested very extensively.

    Also worth noting is that the Transparency panel's Opacity setting will display the setting for whichever opacity setting you have highlighted/selected in the appearance panel.

    When the object's fill is set to 0% opacity and that line/setting is highlighted/selected in the appearance panel, the transparency panel's setting for opacity reads 0% even though the stroke is still visible (because the main/parent object's opacity is still 100%) Changing to the main/parent opacity line in the appearance panel will set the Transparency panel's opacity setting to 100%.

    See these screenshots for visual examples.

    Husaln,

    Is your file something you'd feel comfortable attaching to a comment here? That'd be the best way to share it, unless its contents are of a sensitive or proprietary nature.

    I have never seen this behavior, but it sounds like some sort of bug in illustrator's color engine or color management.

    My system:
    Windows10
    Illustrator 25.4.1 (an other versions back to Illustrator CC 2015-ish)

    Has anyone with this issue ever re-set their preferences? It's a major hassle if you have customized illustrator's preferences to the n'th degree, but sometimes the prefs file gets corrupted and needs to be re-set. I like to backup the folder that the prefs file is in at least once every 6mo.

    My prefs file is located here:
    C:\Users\yourWindowsUsernameHere\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 25 Settings\en_US\x64\

    look for the "Adobe Illustrator Prefs" file and rename it to "Adobe Illustrator Prefs.old" (just so you don't trash a potentially good prefs file) Illustrator will build/create a fresh prefs file when you run the software next.

    I'd be very interested in examining an example *.ai file wherein the issue is observed to have happened, to see if the behavior continues on my system. Somebody with the issue care to share a file?
