I've been experiencing weird result when I copy a pattern from a illustrator file to another: the pattern would change the colours itself! Even when I save the original swatches of the colours and open them in the second file, the colours changed too!
Does anyone know why? Sometimes the colours are find but sometimes not...it seems the colour swatches are not consistent between the files...
What colors are the pattern changing to? It could be an issue with your color profile settings or the global settings in the swatches itself. Elaborate more please.
Some colours of the pattern adopted the colours(swatches) of the other pattern I pasted previously.
The colours are "linked" to the swatches so I could change the colour just by adjusting the swatches. Placing the second pattern should create another complete set of swatches but it didn't. The problem is that the swatches were changed when placed in the second file and became complete different colours.
As you can see in the images I attached, the yellow stripes in the first image became white in the second one.
These patterns are imported from a disc of a pattern book I bought. They came as eps files. I wonder if that's related...
