why we should not do this. I would not say if you should or not. But you probably need to open your options. A brand guide preferably should be in an "absolute color" mode. A PMS is a good decision if the color matches de desired one. (I strugled a lot of years for a good red on the PMS system, sometimes I gave up for the red 032). But there are some ...

Pantone sells a swatchbook called the "Pantone Process Color Imaging Guide 1000" It has color chips for many of the Pantone colors and next to them, a chip showing the Pantone-recommended CMYK equivalent. Or equivalent du jour ... they seem to change from time to time. As it happens, their sample of Orange 021 C is not at all a good match for the CMYK "...

One of the main benefits of using Pantone colors is that you can use colors that simply don't exist with a standard CMYK process. You say the values don't seem accurate but remember what you see on your screen and what will print is rarely going to be the same. Take in to account calibration issues, different color profiles, differences in paper and things ...

You wont get it the same, as rgb and cmyk are different colour spaces and represent different parts of the visible spectrum. The closest you'll get is 27% cyan, 100% magenta, 0% yellow, 0% black, according to the website colorhexa

On-screen representation is NOT an accurate representation of the final printed color. Even custom calibrating your monitor to get accurate color rendering will not always guarantee a match with the actual printed color. There is such a large difference between the way the color models are rendered, this makes using a monitor for color proofing difficult. ...

Try to use APFill Ink Coverage calculator. It calculates coverage of the PDF file and you will get results like on screenshots. It shows separated coverage % for each of CMYK spots and up to 8 pantone colors for each page of the PDF file.

Here are the most recent Pantone Colour Suffix Differences from the PANTONE Help Center: CV = computer video. This designation is used to denote that a color is an electronic simulation of a PANTONE Color. It is used in older versions of software applications that license PANTONE Colors, e.g., Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia FreeHand, QuarkXPress, ...

Adobe Acrobat has a number of tools to analyze PDF documents. You can use the Preflight tool (Edit → Preflight...) to analyze for any pre-print issues, including ink coverage, image resolution etc. and correct some issues. There are a number of preset profiles that you can use, I believe some contain ink coverage checks. You can create your own custom ...

In CMYK "100% key-color" is not completely black in most applications. This is because when printed it will not be "as dark as it gets". You can make a "darker" black by mixing in cyan, magenta and yellow colors. So this is probably intended by Photoshop. I guess that you probably would want (more or less) completely black if you are using it for anything ...

I don't see any problem here. Of-course a little bit of difference will be created since CMYK supports more color range than RGB. Just copy the CMYK values and paste them in the RGB mode as it is. or just copy the color code ( Hex-values ) from the CMYK document and use it in the RBG document.

I had the same trouble, and after trial and error I found the solution: Simply uncheck 'embed color profile' while "saving as"

If you know how to do this in PostScript do it in PostScript. PostScript is very far from dead you know, it's just that it no longer serves Adobe's goals very well. Adobe really hasn't dropped PostScript, it's just that it works badly as an asset transfer mechanism. So printer realities get discarded when using it in this manner, which is not what you want. ...
