I've noticed just this week, so not sure if this is related to the new updates (illustrator 26).

I create my artwork in illustrator and I am visually choosing colours on the screen. I know this isnt an exact art but when I then either place the file into indesign or create a PDF the colours are completely different.

They are going duller. So it seems my display is set up wrong in illustrator - how can I make these match?

I am working with CMYK soley - on both document setup and swatches.

 

I have attached an example - so top image is in Acrobat, bottom image is in Illustrator.
