I open up a new InDesign file and create a box 100% Cyan, another 100% Magenta, one more 100% Yellow, and a 100% black.
When I print the file and compare it to my printer's calibration test print, the 100% colours are not the same.
You can clearly see that the cyan blue comes out more like a dark Turqoise and the Magenta as a warm dark rose-colour. Currently now I have tried exporting to PDF and have it printed from Acrobat - same show, I have tried creating the same file with squares in Pages and MS Word - same result, And also in Photoshop and Illustrator.
I had the Technician from Kyocera by, saying that if the calibration page is printing the colours correctly (which they are) then it must be the profile used or sent from the applications. Then I had a support session with Adobe trying to resolve the issue by changing a lot of printing and file settings - still didn't work. I updated the Kyocera driver to newest one available - still wrong colours..
Now I would like to know if this is something forwarded by Mac OS? That it automatically interprets all colours as RGB and then "converts" the interpreted RGB version of CMYK to an estimate CMYK value instead of using the defined CMYK value from the application? Or what is going on? And how do I solve it?
