I am creating a color library for our organizational brand and am experiencing difficulty with the colors maintaining their breakdowns.
I have set up our brank colors in a library but when I go back to test the colors several of them do not have the same breakdowns as in initially input. I have a CMYK and RGB group for the brand colors. The CMYK colors seem to be stable, but the RBG breakdowns change.
If for instance I have a purple that is set up in my library with RGB breakdown of R70 B29 B124, which is HEX #467D7C, when I go back to use that color, it has different color breakdowns in the color picker. The breakdown is R71 G44 B122, HEX #472C7A. I am viewing them in DOCUMENT COLOR MODE: RGB and in the COLOR PICKER.

Do you have any thoughts on why they keep changing? I keep changing them back and they keep changing. It seems like once you set the color that the breakdown numbers would stay the same, even if there is a color shift in the monitor.
