Can anyone tell me what is meant by and Unmanaged File - this appears in the status bar in Illustrator CS4 when I create a new document.
I'm thinking it may have something to do with colour management/colour profiles but would appreciate any clarification.
Next to it there is a little triangle or if you wish arrow head it is a drop down menu fi you click on it it will tell you what option you have selected and yes I would say it probably does refer to the document color policy.Or it has something to do with version cue.
Thanks for getting back.
I suspect you are right - it probably has something to do with Version Cue.
Unmanaged refers to the color management. If you don't assign any specific profiles, the program will use whatever is your default preference, hence the documents are considered unmanaged. It's just a firndly reminder that what you see on screen may not correctly reflect color metrics or settings on otehr machines...
