I very much appreciate your inquiry and your questions.
I ask a lot of questions, many of them perhaps 'annoyingly' obvious.
Perhaps I perturb some folks here and I'm partially sorry for that but hey
that's how I learn. Sometimes i need to ask the question several times.
That's how a community works, IMO.

It reminds of the saying "You've never read a book once until you've read
it twice".

So, keep asking questions! I've also read different 'Color Management'
documentation (including the Scribus Help files) and find it difficult to
grasp. Not sure what my obstacle is. I will say that your questions are
helping me understand it a little better.
