I would like to automate the error-prone process of selecting a Simulation Profile in Output Preview (including simulating black ink) in preparation for printing (where we select "Apply output preview settings").
It may be possible to create this with a Plug-in. I don't know whether or not the Print Production functionality has an HFT. But if it does you could create specialty print preview buttons.

Thanks for the info, Thom!
Writing a C++ plug-in is probably more than I'm up to tho.
