I was half way through a illustration, when suddenly all of my colors suddenly went pale, and the color picker tool won't show the correct color when I try to switch it back. I've tried adjusting the illustration in both RGB and CMYK settingd and it's still pale. Do I need to adjust my settings? Has anyone else dealt with this?
Can you show a screenshot with the layers panel open please?
Please show your color management settings.
And tell us which color profile is applied to the file.
Any chance you are in Isolation Mode by double clicking accidentally?
Sorry about the delay. I am hopeful that the issue was fixed. If not, please try the suggestions shared on this similar discussion ( https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/colors-suddenly-display-incorrectly-in-illustrator/td-p/1... ) and let us know how it goes.
