I know pantone colors are for print. I do have a pantone color guide. So I know how the colors will be looking when printed. When I look at the logo in Indesign and Illustrator the pantone colors are almost the same (overprint preview checked).

So I wondered if it could be possible that they also look good in Acrobat too. But that seems to be impossible. Whatever profile I use to save the PDF in Indesign the pantone colors in my PDF look dull in Acrobat Pro. When I open this same PDF in Illustrator the pantone colors look right with overprint preview checked.

Is this normal?
