    Default Paper catalogue not associating with correct output profile

    Hi, I created a paper catalogue for the majority of papers that we use. Currently we are using two types of output profile - either COATED or UNCOATED. In paper catalogue, I defined which types of paper should use which type of output profiles. However, when I import a job, assign it paper from paper catalogue (for example "200gr_EXPRESSION_GLOSS_COATED SRA3 White" and then I go to Color settings of the job, I would expect COATED output profile and calibration to be assigned to it? However, there is still the default value (which is UNCOATED).

    See the 3 attached pics.

    You have to choose "Use media defined profile". Set your Properties default to that and then when you make a selection from the paper catalog you should get that profile.

    Hmmm, actually you are maybe right. I even have the default setting set to "Use job defined settings".

    But I think EFI/Fiery/CWS has a bug in there, because if I do it like this:

    1) import job to CWS
    2) go to properties and choose media from the paper catalogue
    3) go to color settings - just to confirm it picks up the correct profile/calibration... well, can't say about profile because there it still only shows "Use job defined settings", but at calibration I see it is picking up the wrong one (should be picking calibration for coated paper, but still picks uncoated). BUT!!! if I close the job properties window and open it again, the correct calibration is applied.

    Now I wonder... do I have to close/reopen it every time for correct output profile/calibration to be assigned? Or can I trust it and not bother with re-opening even though it says wrong profile/calibration has been assigned?

    They haven't fix that. I brought that to their attention back during the beta program.

    I guess CWS only updates the actual profile when opening the properties window but I'm 100% sure the rip engine will use the correct one in either way. So you don't need to bother.
    But take care when using Impose (not flattened). Then you might get into trouble on some Fierys.
