Hi, On the Save as PDF=>Color tab there are two panels contolling the
solid colors and images. In both cases the displayed profile is Adobe
RGB (1998). In the drop down list all the options appear to be RBG. The
CYMK ICCs that I installed are not visible on this tab, but they are
visible on the PDF/X-3 tab. I have selected 'Output intended for:
Printer'. Will the generated PDF be in RGB or CYMK? I want it in CYMK.
Thanks for your help.
