    Pantone logo shows different colors

      Hello Adobe forums!

       

      I've got a PDF vector logo, with pantone 294C, that's ready to be inserted into InDesign, for ease-of-use.

       

      When I insert it into InDesign, it shows up as a bright-blue, definitely not Pantone 294C.

       

      When I open the pdf in Illustrator, then transfer the logo directly into InDesign from Illustrator, it shows up as the correct blue Pantone 294C.

       

      See screenshot for color difference.

       

      When I print, the logos are identical in color. My question is: Why does InDesign "render" the two logos in different colortones, when they are actually identical?

      The top logo is the PDF inserted into InDesign, and is showing up as a brighter blue. The bottom logo is the PDF opened in Illustrator, then transfered to InDesign as vector. Both logos, printed directly from InDesign, looks like the same color.
