I'm using CS4 InDesign. I have two swatches that say they are the exact same colour yet they appear different between two InDesign documents. When I drag text between the two documents it automaticly switches to the other colour. Very confused by this, never run into it before wondering if anyone knows of a colour profile setting or something that I accidently changed or missed.
You turn it off from the View menu. Having Proof Colors turned on might also preview the color as CMYK.
If the page is going to be printed on a CMYK press the overprint preview is more accurate. You would need to run an extra spot color to get the out-of-gamut green. If you define the swatch as a Spot color it won't change with overprint, the assumption being that the color will print as a 5th color and not be converted into CMYK.
When I turn on Over-Print-Preview on the light green document it turns the text to the darker green. Oddly enough turning it on or off with the other document doesn't seem to affect it at all. But that is ok because I was wanting the darker green anyways. Thanks.
Convert the swatch to CMYK and the preview will be the same with Overprint on or off.

That document's Edit>Transparency Blend Space is probably RGB.
