I'm using Illustrator CS2, and my document is 8bit CMYK.
I saved an AI file with black composed as 100%, 100%, 100%, 100%:
I saved it with these options:
If I open it again and use the Eyedropper Tool to inspect the black area, values are not the same I saved:
Why? Is there a special settings that makes Illustrator save color codes instead of replacing them with default ones?
Note: I know that CMYK black should be 0%,0%,0%,100% but the machine I use for printing requires everything set to 100%, otherwise it will print sort of a dark gray, not black.
