How to change document color mode in Illustrator?

I have document with some color. I can’t reproduce this color exactly when exporting to web. I was told, that this is because of the bug, by which Illustrator is not changing color mode with menu

enter image description here

and it is required to create new document for this setting take an effect.

If this true, then how to copy all data from old document to the new one, including artboard size and location?


You do not need to create a new document, you are able to change the color mode.

First go to FileDocument Color Mode and Change it to CMYK or RGB – Depending on what you need.

Then open the Color window – WindowColor (or hit F6)

Click on the drop down menu in the top right

Switch from CMYK to RGB

You can then click on any object in the file and it should come up in
RGB colors (or CMYK if switching vice-versa).
