PMS color in logo design from Illustrator CC looks different when placed in InDesign CC. For some crazy reason, the PMS color in InDesign now has a LAB profile. I cannot change that profile in either program. Now my artwork looks messed up.
Does anyone have a solution to have the proper profiles (matching in both programs) like Pantone 266 C Spot or Process and remove the LAB cool to show CMYK profile in the color palette?
If you want to see CMYK values for spots in ID, use the Pantone Color Bridge books. Those are the process conversions to whatever unknown CMYK space Pantone has used. But you'll get more accurate color both on screen and on press for a conversion from spot to process in a color managed workflow by using the Lab definitions and letting ID convert the Lab values to the closest cmyk match in the destination space when you use Ink Manager to convert spots to process.
like Pantone 266 C Spot or Process
266C is considerably out-of-gamut to any CMYK space. If you really are outputting to a spot plate and ink, you want the Lab definition in both applications otherwise your display will be a CMYK simulation of the spot ink and not the ink's actual color. On press no CMYK inks will be used to print the spot, so you don't want a CMYK definition or profile used for the color's preview.
