1) 1.2.2 CVS has new tooltips to explain when it is disabled.
2) The 1.2.2 docs have been completey re-written for CMS.
3) I am hoping to add a couple of 'generic' profiles, just to enable CMS
automagically. The possbile trade off is lots of "my prints look lousy" when
CMS is enabled.
I guess the other question for the original poster is if PDF/X-3 really
PDF/X-3 pre-supposes two things:
A commercial printer with a very advanced RIP.
A user with experience with color management and already having correctly
profiled monitors, as well as other peripherals.
