    I cannot work this one out. I have a company logo saved in my folders with the correct colours. Pictured Right. Yet when I have copied Ctrl + c and pasted ctrl + v onto the photo of the truck it is a completely different colour. The values are the same on each of the workspaces.

    Even between these two photos you can see the difference in colours with the same values.

    Do you have soft proof turned on or off?

    Self taught here, what is soft proof?

    Ha Ha! Me too, don’t worry about it :smiles: & I might be wrong as I use Flexi so it may not be on your software, but it’s an option in the "view" tab that converts screen colours to simulate print output colours. toggling it on or off can make a massive difference I find in Flexi.

    I can only think that the document colour management settings differ from each other

    Compare them both to make sure they match

    I get this when opening old X5 files and using them on cdr19 (latest), not every time but..

    re proofing, bottom right on 2019 is a small coloured screen, something to do with proofing colours, I’ve never investigated it but, there it resides!

    I save my old, much customised X5 cmyk swatch and imported it into 2019, do the same on the home office pc and my laptop too. though the laptop always shows weird colours!
