Yes, I have been trying to fix my InDesign settings since I updated the apps with no luck. The color difference is horrible between the apps.
I have the same problem (OS High Sierra). Color settings are not synchronized by Bridge and do not stay as selected.
Even if i select the settings correctly, Illustrator keeps reseting them to "Emulate Illustrator 6.0" when i am switching the apps while working.
Tried to get rid of the problem by uninstalling and installing the apps multiple times.
Deleted the "Preferences" and "Application Support" folders of the 2018 versions without any success.
Hope there will be a quick patch or something.

I think I got it working after trashing the color preferences.
Havent tried it before. Good idea . Worked for me so far.
Hope the colors will stay as they are now
Hmmm, I tried it and it didn't make a difference... I think we need a patch. I'm using OS Mohave and maybe that's the problem.
Didn't work for me either. I'm using High Sierra so it's not a Mojave issue.
I'm on High Sierra having this issue. Trashing colour preferences didn't work, neither did colour syncing from Bridge.
Uninstalling Bridge has fixed it for both Illustrator and InDesign though.
I uninstalled and reinstalled Bridge first and then trashed "ACEConfigCache2.lst". Perhaps this is the way to go?
Yep, uninstalling Bridge and removing that colour preferences file has fixed it for me - thanks!

Thanks to Thijs, this helped - at least for now:
Close all Adobe Apps
Start Bridge to set the desired Color Settings
Nevertheless: it's sad to have to do this manually...
YES, this finally worked for me, thanks!
What is the fix for windows 10? Need help asap thanks
What is the fix for windows 10 version of illustrator. Indesign and photoshop are fine.
sorry but none of this is working on my mac mini. neighter uninstalling bridge, deleting the preference file, illustrator and indesign keeps resetting the color management to emulate an older version. ADOBE HOW COULD YOU MESS THAT UP!? fix this pronto please!
I've tried this method, but unfortunately it didn't help.
Maybe it is not exactly the same problem.
My Illustrator is OK, but Indesign isn't.
I'm on Win 10.
In Bridge I've set the Color settings to Europe Prepress 3, so the RGB profile has to be Adobe RGB, and the CMYK profile has to be FOGRA39.
My profile is synched in all my current installed applications (Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Lightroom Classic).
However if I want to create a Hi-Res PDF file in my synchronised Indesign, the working space seems to be based on sRGB, and U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2.
Also when I go to Edit>Convert to profile, the source space seems to be RGB: sRGB, and CMYK: U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2.
If I convert the document, than everything seems to be OK for exporting to PDF.
But this isn't really a great workaround, if you think of processing many documents a day.
Someone has the same problem, and maybe have a solution for this on Win 10?
Thanks for your insights, and help in advance . . .
Don't know what happened, but after converting one document to the right profiles... the problem seems to have disappeared.
I've just made a restart on Win 10, and now the right profile is set in Indesign.
Thanks . . .
I can't find the location of this file in my computer.
Is there another solution for this? I have uninstalled Ps, Ai, Id several times and the issue of the color still there. Can anyone suggest another way to fix this?
On a side note: I did't uninstall bridge but I did trash the Adobe Bridge 2018 (the old orphan pref) and 2019 pref files as well before posting my solution. Although for me deleting the colorpref file did the trick.
MacOS 10.13.6 (17G65) High Sierra.
Delete from mac os:
all old versions
all adobe applications
close all adobe process
all adobe folders and adobe files in library
clean trash and temp
restart mac os
install again all app
!!! first open adobe bridge / edit / color settings / select / save
open other adobe app
It works for me
If delete only this file, the same story, after some time
I tried searching for the ACEConfigCache2.lst file to delete and can't find it on my computer. Does anyone know where else it could be living? Thanks!

1. Quit all Adobe apps
2. Hold down the Option key, and choose the Go Menu.
3. Chose Library.
4. Go to Preferences/Adobe/Color
5. Delete this file: ACEConfigCache2.lst
Thank you so much for this post.
It work :-)
These are the steps that have been working for me and my creative team:
1. If you use an Adobe supplied Color Settings preset, go to next step, otherwise use Photoshop Color Settings, to create your desired color settings, and then Save a named Preset.
2. Quit all Adobe apps
3. Hold down the Option key, and choose the Go Menu.
4. Chose Library.
5. Go to Preferences/Adobe/Color
6. Delete this file: ACEConfigCache2.lst
7. Go into Bridge 2018 (or 2019 if you have already deleted Bridge 2018), and go to Edit, Color Settings, and chose your desired preset, and click Apply. If done in Bridge 2018, you don't need to do it in Bridge 2019.
8. Quit Bridge, and now all your 2018 and 2019 apps will be "Synchronized" and will not revert back to the factory defaults!
This worked... and I agree... maddening to have to do this manually. And while we're at it, I hate the new transform set up in Photoshop... if it worked don't try to "fix" it.
Thank You very, very much!
Now the colors are perfect.
That file (ACEConfigCache2.lst) appears to be the culprit - having a look at the file reveals that instead of pointing to the selected colour profile (this is what the file normally does), it was highly truncated.
This goes on to explain two behaviours: why colour settings kept defaulting to none and why the ACE process would continually run.
Experienced this issue as well with 2019 apps, illustrator, indesign and photoshop were all broken in color profiles and bridge kept on resetting my settings. following this guide by uninstalling bridge with reinstall, and deleting the preference file solved it - for now
Working with PS cc 2019, CS6 AI and Indesign, have not updated Mac to Mohave concerned may render my CS6 programs useless. Since the cc PS update my color files from Ai when moved to PS are washed out.
My question, if I follow the best practice outlined here by a few responders, will this work across CS6 and cc?
Hope that was not too convoluted a question
All solution proposals doesn't work for me on High Sierra.
Uninstall bridge, uninstall ACEConfigCache2.lst, install bridge, synchronize.
Indesign and Illustrator will not synchronize color settings.
