    Color profile in InDesign question

    Saki H Level 1

      I created a swatch using a Pantone color:

      But in the color panel it shows up as a lab color:

      And when I mouse over the swatch in the swatches panel, I see these values in the floating yellow box above the swatch that appears on mouseover.



      The ink manager is not set to use lab values for spots:

      Why is InDesign converting the spot color to lab color? Also, the transparency blend space is set to CMYK (if that's relevant).

      Any help would be great.
