CMYK profiles have been removed from being selected in the LR Print module because they weren't working completely correctly and Adobe decided to remove them until they could rework what happens, so I don't know when they'll return. Is that the issue?
When opening the Profile dropdown list, click on Other... and check those you want to appear in the list.
Thanks for the heads up, this is the first time of needing to use Profiles, so there was no way of knowing that this issue goes back a way. Have since learnt how to Softproof my Lr images via Ps, not the ideal but it works none the less. Still find it puzzling that of the two, only Ps and not Lr is the only one that can work with the CYMK profiles !
Do hope they sort this out. Good luck and thanks again.
