    Why do text boxes show up as different colors when they are the same color?

    LizDorsett

      I am baffled. I have created an InDesign document and I used the rectangle tool to create a blue box at the top of the document and one at the bottom. They are both filled with CMYK (100, 88, 35, 28). The one on the top of the document shows darker than the one at the bottom. I thought it was a document issue, so I created a new document. It does the same thing. I took the box at the top and moved it to the bottom and when it hit the half way point of the document, it changed colors (got lighter).

       

      Any suggestions? Thanks.
