    Best color settings for my Dell 3760 in InDesignCC

    John_Nolan Level 1

      I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle this printer on my Mac (os 10.7.5). As far as I can tell the printer has real Adobe PostScript 3 (at least the test page features the Adobe logo)

       

      It didn't come with an ICC profile, and I'm just not sure how to proceed. If I let InD manage the color, what cmyk profile should I select?

       

      If I save to PDF x/4 and print from Acrobat, how do I make sure I'm not "double managing" the color? The print dialogue for the Dell has 2 choices for color matching: "ColorSync" or "In printer" -  neither seems right! I do notice a "invalidate color profile" check box is available in one of the print dialogue panels. Perhaps that's what I want?

       

      Acrobat asks for an "output intent", but I don't know what to select: "Generic CMYK" or what?

       

      Thanks for any tips.
