Crazy green tint on greys in Illustrator CS5.1

May 13, 2011 1:26 PM

I've just downloaded the trial of CS5 having used Illustrator since before the Creative Suite existed. I'm trying to set up some colours but every time I'm making greys, they are coming out with this gnarly green tint that I don't want. The colour I'm mixing is showing up as regular grey in the colour mixer but in the image I'm working on and the swatch it's showing up with the tint.

Any ideas?

    What happens if you choose the color from the regular Color panel in AI instead of the color picker? Does it still do this?

    Interesting. The Screen captures you've posted have a green cast to them when viewing them on the forum but when I click on the image to enlarge, they are the gray you have shown in the color panel. I don't know if this will show it but
