I am using the same starting CMYK build and trying to recolor to the same Pantone swatch library.
I do not always get the same Pantone color even though all of my recolor settings are the same.
Are there any other color settings outside of the recolor window that would affect the results of the recolor feature?
It appears my Color Settings are the same. Any thoughts?
As per your query when you use the same color on the same file or different file it appears differently.
Would you mind sharing some screenshots with following details
Operating System(Exact Version of Windows and MAC)
Exact Version of Illustrator
Are you using some paid Pantone colors or default ones?
