Launch Color Profiler Suite, then launch Verifier.

In verify preferences select the ISO 12647-2 control strip and the gracol reference data.

Click measure on the left side of the verify window and measure the strip. Summary results will be shown and a detailed report can be generated from the File menu.

For Fiery you need the Graphic Arts package II or Graphic Arts Premium addition to add a control bar, procedure is in the documentation. If you don;t have one of these packages just take the strip from the Verify color targets directory, drag it into Command Workstation, Held queue. Set all your color settings on it (source simulation and output profile plus image quality features especially the halftone screen the print engine will use which should match the way you calibrate and make the output profile). Then whenever you want to check print the control strip on the same paper you do jobs on.
