comment What fonts are ideal for E-ink displays?
Thanks for the clarification, that is exactly what I meant. I'm actually doing research on that very topic currently. I'll have to contribute my findings.

comment Pantone color doesn't translate to new document?
Yes. The only difference I can see between the two documents is this: In the color palette, where it shows the pantone color, under 100% there are two icons. One for Spot Color, the other for CMYK Color. Clicking either one will convert the colors to spot or CMYK. In the document where the logo looks purple, instead of an icon for CMYK, there is one for Lab. I don't know if that helps at all.

Alright, so I was mistaken. I just tried the same test in CS5 at work and it does the same thing. I've just never noticed it before I guess (I don't work with bright neon colors real often). Also, some colors are dulled more than others. Neon green, for example, just happens to be one that is dulled a lot.

Thanks for the good info, Scott. When I switch my document to RGB mode, it allows me to pick the neon green. Does that mean that neon green just doesn't exist as a CMYK color? Also, is this new behavior in CS6? I've been using CS3 for years and never dealt with this.

Document is in CMYK and colors are also CMYK. Something else that's interesting to note: I opened a document with a box colored with blue - Pantone 280 C. I copied/pasted the box into a new document and it looks purple (but still says it's Pantone 280 C).
