Hello

I am just trying to use Indesign and I encontred a little problem with color.

They look little bit differente from work area to the pdf, i mean in the work area of Indesign they look less alive :).

You can see,what I mean, in the screenshot that I attached here. All colors are in cmyk and to creat the pdf I used the export of Indesign.

Thank you for the help

Try using the PDF/X-4 or PDF/X-1a preset when you Export.

What are your InDesign Color Settings set to?

 

Does the document have an assigned CMYK profile—Edit>Assign Profiles...?

Acrobat is not Acrobat Reader. These are two different apps. Which do you use?

You could have a corrupt monitor profile—CMYK color gets converted into your system’s monitor profile for display, so the monitor profile has to be an accurate profile of the display. I’m on OSX, so I can‘t help with the Windows monitor profile setup
