Can you please help me? I am trying to explore the color management in Adobe reader 9. I have a pdf X1a file with a picture that has embedded CMYK profile. In Acrobat 9, I could see the output preview with paper white simulation. Can such a simulation be done in Adobe reader 9.0?
I don't see any regular color management controls for the user in the Reader, let alone soft proofing controls. So I guess the answer would be no, if I understand your question correctly.
