Exporting to PDF from Publisher changes the color and color cast.

Recommended Posts

I am layouting a portfolio in Publisher. I have setup the documents color space for Adobe RGB (set to convert in document setup) and all imported photos are Adobe RGB color space as well. I have a color calibrated monitor capable of showing almost 100% of Adobe RGB color space and photos are looking as they should in the Publisher Document.

The issue arise when exporting the Publisher document to PDF using Shift+Ctrl+Alt+S command. When choosing either PDF for print or PDF for web I have tried all combinations of the color space and ICC settings in the menu option "more" and it always change the colors in the PDF compared to the colors in Publisher when I view the file in Adobe Reader.

This does not happen when printing (CTRL+P) the publisher document to a PDF using either Microsofts PDF or Bullzip (software PDF printer).

Can anyone tell me what I might have overlooked  or doing worng?

Hi @erchdk,

Sorry for the delayed reply. 

We are aware of this issue and it has already been logged with our developers. It's a bug in the PDF export and the colour profile does not export correctly ( sRGB ICC profile gets assigned to it). 

Thanks for reply. Nice to know, you are aware of this issue. Keep up the great work!

The fixes and how to update are described in these forum posts.

We would appreciate you checking that this issue has now been resolved for you.
