Hi ..ive just done a new reinstall of acobat dc 2021 (as my older version didnt allow me to delete pdfs from my desktop without incuring a 10 minute delay!)


I use a coloredge monitor, configured with colormunki and created working spaces for use within PS and ID (ISO coated ver 2 for CYMK). In PS, all image profiles are removed when opened, so i see the correct colours using my monitor setup. In ID , i use the same working spaces and export the pdf  > output / color/ convert to destination/iso coated v2 (as sometimes i use rgb images in ID when i think that PS is being too heavy when converting RGB > CYMK)


Anyways.....now, whenever i open the pdf, i just see a rgb version, rather than a print veriosn (strong magentas/blues/greens etc that can't be achieved in print). Ive gone in to color management in acrobat and i have ISO caoted V2 in CYMK working spaces ..eg, left to right - indesign screen grab, acrobat pdf, same pdf opened in PS


.....any thought?
