    Indesign CS6 PMS conversion to cmyk

    dave hills7

      Hi all, CS 6 Indesign has changed the pms to cmyk colour conversion based on Lab values which creates a lot of problems for us. I have followed these instructions form adobe site yet when testing, in CS6 with a pms colour, for instance pms 485C, when converting within indesign to cmyk values, instead of getting what they are supposed to be which is mag 95, yellow 100, i still get wrong values from indesign conversion to C -7.32, M97.5, Y-100, K0.71

       

      Adobe InDesign CS6:

      1. Quit the application
      2. From the folder Adobe InDesign CS6/Presets/Swatch Libraries/, remove all the libraries that have names starting with Pantone+
      3. From any older version of Adobe InDesign (CS2 - CS5) copy all the Pantone libraries with extension .acb and place into: Adobe InDesign CS6/Presets/Swatch Libraries/
      4. Similarly, copy all Pantone libraries with extension .acbl and place into: Adobe InDesign CS6/Presets/Swatch Libraries/Legacy/
      5. Restart your application.

      Any help appreciated
