Hi guys, 

 

I am trying to use a deep red in Indesign, however when I move the colour picker to this colour "ff0000" it defaults to "c5462b" which is a burnt orange colour. Can anyone advise on this please? 

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

Happy New Year!! Screenshot 2021-01-02 at 15.27.13.pngScreenshot 2021-01-02 at 15.27.26.png

The Color Picker is cursor sensitive. If your cursor is in one of the C, M, Y, or K fields, the chosen color will be the closest CMYK value—your capture is showing an Add CMYK Swatch button (#FF0000 RGB is not in the CMYK gamut). If you put your cursor in one of the R, G, or B fields the picked color will be RGB.
