I have a (hopefully!) slight problem with Pantone colours which may be simply (I hope) a misconception on my part and hopefully somebody can set me straight.
I'm creating a template in Frame to mimic an existing doc (in PDF). I have a list of the Pantone colours used but they don't look quite the same but then graphics quite often don't in Frame until distilled and printed. However, when I was playing with the PDF (opened in Illustrator) to check the colour match, I drew a box and selected the Pantone swatch from the Pantone colour library but was told another already existed in the document with a different definition
Was I wrong in assuming that the Pantone colours were set? I'd always assumed that if I was using Pantone 5565 CVC then every time I select that colour it would be the same but it seems to have been redefined - am I missing something obvious?
