Check your Color Setting in all your Adobe apps (and Bridge). There is a current bug that has messed with preferences, and even if you reset them, they do not stick.If so, there is a workaround in a few threads here.

Depends. Are they RGB (images) and do you use transparency/effects on the page? Is your Document blend space CMYK? Do you export as CMYK (print) or RGB (web, smallest size etc) PDF? What are your Colour Management setting? Etc. etc....

Apologies for not being more specific.

This was a brand new doc (A5) with a CMYK setup. No effects or transparency being used all the colour swatches loaded int eh side as CMYK.

The export was using the standard "High quality Print" setting on export settings.

So the indesgn document appears dull and it's clearly notihng to to with my screen as the PDF appears to have the correct colours on it.
