When I enter decimal values as CMYK colors, Illustrator automatically rounds them. Is it possible to avoid this? For example, I am entering C=0 M=13.5 Y=7.14 K=0 for a very specific color given by our printer, but when I go back to check, it's automatically rounded to C=0 M=13 Y=7 K=0

 

I apprecaite your advise. Thank you

When you double click the swatch, those values should still be there.

Does this really make a difference?

Thank you for your message. The values automatically are rounded off when I click the swatch again. They don't stay the way I enter them (i.e, with decimals).

 

My client requested a specific color to match packaging and the CMYK values she gave me (from her printer) have decimals. Her printer thought there was a setting that would allow decimals to be entered, but none that I can find.
