Colour Libraries don't match artboard

Hello Community,

I am having an issue with my colour libraries. My document is set to RGB, but the colour that I see on color.adobe.com matches the colour in my library panel. However, it does not match the swatch that goes down on my artboard. It is driving me crazy. Help would be appreciated.

 

I have attached two screenshots: one of a library on color.adobe.com and one of my illustrator with the same theme and the main "blue" applied to a circle.

 

Sorry for the "colour" everywhere, I am Canadian.

Adobe Color is not collor managed. Please use the Window > Color Themes  in Illustrator, which recognizes your color settings.

Hi.

This is because you are using CMYK in color.adobe.com

Try to create an RGB color harmony to match your document color mode.

Best Regards

I tried it in CMYK and RGB colour space in Illustrator. No difference. The colour still comes out as purple instead of blue. But thanks for the input!

I just tried this out, the same result. It is blue in the "colour themes window" and very purple on the artboard.

If I create the profiles from scratch using the "Colour Themes" window, then the colours work. If this was your original point, then thank you for the workaround. It is helpful, for today at least!

Yes the CMYK or RGB that Illustrator is expecting is not what the Adobe Color website is suggesting. 

Especially the CMYK is always wrong.
