have one. Nevertheless, turn it on.
When generating the PDF use "printer", either turn off color management
or on, which is not common (as adviced by the printing house) - that is

pictures (that is the second checkbox), but do not click on third one

with just one click.
When using large fields with cymk-colors it makes sense to let your
printing know the messurements (c = 40 %, k = 100 % etc).
If you are going to print in digital mode:

and leave all pictures and colors in rgb.
