Under Mac OSX 10.8 there is a critical error on output preview.
A PDF with the ISOCoatedv2 colorprofil looks very different at Acrobat 9 Pro and Acrobat X Pro.
The preview in Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat 9 is correct.
The complete same file at Acrobat X Pro looks verry different! (in each app the simulation is on IsoCoatedv2)
on top the acrobat X Pro (red is to dark)
on the pic below is the correct one in Acrobat 9.
What can i do, that Acrobat X Pro shows me correct colors (the same whicht Acrobat 9 shows)?!
Try hovering the mouse over a particular part of the image (zoom in to get it precisely, perhaps extreme top left). The 'separations' field should show the amount of each ink. Are the answers the same? What are the colours?
Compare the Color Preferences in both Acrobat versions. Especially, the value of "black point compensation" - this can make a difference like this. (My starting point was identical colours until I changed it).
what fix? adobe must have changed the way they access/translate data to the monitor color space and didn't tell anyone about it. wouldn't have been the first time and sure wont be the last. no preference panel allows you access to those settings. leaving us with no choice but once again bow to adobes monopoly power.
how come microsoft got sued over a similar issue and adobe?
and those color management preferences got nothing to do with the way a pdf is rendered on your screen, that's only to describe items that don't have a profile attached (device colorspaces).
acrobat 11 does exactly the same. sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
just checked, the worse your monitor profile is, the bigger the display error. acrobat 11 (and i guess 10 as well) readjust the display. try changing the monitor profile in system preferences and watch acrobat 11 reset its display within a few seconds. it displays correctly for about half a second and than its back to some unrelated display mode.
thnaks for the great find!
oops, my bad, acrobat 10 is not as bad as the new version 11. specially acrobat 11 is a strange beast, hard to guess what it is doing there. try disbling the page cache and you get more funky issues. only acrobat 9 renderes the colors according to photoshop.
still - where are my options to adjust adobes display calculations to my monitor profile?
i did pick a way out there monitor profile to exagerate the effect!
