To begin, I'm pretty new to illustrator, So i'm really not sure what's going on.
I'm using the mesh tool to make some gradient patterns in a circle
However, with certain colours (like purple), i can't seem to get a bright puple no matter what i do. I'll select the anchor, change the colour to '#A700FF' and it will put change to '#7F3F98' instead. I've tried to change it to various other bright purples, but nothing works - it just goes back to a darker purple.
The problem with this is that I actually want a bright purple.
