    Color management policy

    jmlevy Adobe Community Professional

      Hi,

      I am a newbie to InDesign Server and would like to know what is the default color management policy in InDesign Server. I need to replicate our color management policy installed on our desktop machines which is:

      RGB: Preserve embedded profiles

      CMYK: Preserve numbers (ignore linked profiles)

       

      Thanks!

          I also don't know the default cm policy. We use our own: Place a jsx-file that refers to the color setting file on this location:

          /Applications/Adobe InDesign xx Server/Scripts/startup scripts/script.jsx

          The csf must be placed in the known places (e.g. Mac-HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Settings)

           

          The content of the script is:

           

          function arrayContains( arr, obj )

          {

              try{

                  for( var i = 0; i<arr.length; i++)

                  {

                      if (arr[i] == obj)

                      {

                          return true;

                      }

                  }

              }

              catch( err )

              {

                  return false;

              }

           

              return false;

          }

           

           

          function doColor( myColorSettingName )

          {

              try

              {

                  app.colorSettings.mismatchAskWhenOpening = false;

                  app.colorSettings.enableColorManagement  = true;

           

                  var availableSettings     = app.colorSettings.cmsSettingsList;

           

                  if( arrayContains( availableSettings, myColorSettingName ))

                  {

                      app.colorSettings.cmsSettings = myColorSettingName;

                  }

                  else

                      return "error colorSetting '" + myColorSettingName + "' is not available!";

              }

              catch( err )

              {

                  return "error " + err;

              }

             

              return true;

          }

           

          doColor( "my_csf_file");
