I dismay!  Surely the point of icc is to make all those appear the same?  I realise there are limitations of 'the same' but I can say that what Acrobat shows is pretty damned close to what my desktop inkjet spits out.  So those two (Acrobat on MY monitor and MY inkjet printer) seem to talk that same colour... ...So I'm still baffled!  Surely the X3 should display the picture right on screen and then add the extra blackness at the printing on paper stage of thats whats needed for that printing process...
