Illustrator 10, Convert to Profile: mental block or sudden blindness?

Mar 30, 2011 1:11 PM

I've either hit a mental block or have become temporarily blind, but I cannot find "Convert to Profile" in Illustrator 10.0.3 Mac, running Tiger 10.4.11.

 

Any hint or slap on the head that might jog my memory will be appreciated.  The Help files have not been helpful yet.  As the fortune cookie said, old age always comes at a most inopportune time

 

Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean "Type>Create Outlines"?

    Or do you mean Assign Current Working Space (colour profile) when opening a file?

    Or Embed ICC Profiles when saving a file for the first time?

     

    Edit:

    Edit > Color Settings (Cmd+Shift+K)

    Tai Lao,

     

    At least in 10, Illy does not offer that option, so you have to go through Edit>Color Settings and click the desired one.

    AFAIK, Illustrator never had Convert to Profile.

    I'm not sure how documentation suggests to achieve that if there is any suggestion at all but what I do is duplicate the file, delete everything, then Edit > Assign Profile, and finally copy everything from the original and paste in place with preserving layers to the new document. This is equivalent to Convert to Profile.

    Forgot to mention in the Color Settings policy "Ask when pasting" should be checked

    You mean even newer versions don't?

    Actually ignore that, I just check and it is not required. The default behavior converts with just a warning.

    For my insignificant part you are welcome, Tai Lao.
