Query about Output Style

Post by iain robinson » 31 Dec 2020, 06:07

Hi

I have noticed that in QXP2016 (and the trial version of QXP2020) that if I export an Output Style for customers to use, the path to the ICC profile used by this preset (ResourceUsage="FinalTargetDevice") is spelled out in full in the XML file and is platform specific (ie different for Windows and Mac). This seems problematic - we make this preset (and the ICC profile) available to customers on our website and don't want to have to have separate versions for the two systems. I don't have the same version on both Windows and Mac so I can't fully test it here but presumably if the customer installed the ICC profile before importing the Output Style preset, which is what we recommend, it all works out. We've been doing this for years and I'm not aware of any problems which makes me wonder why the full path is listed in the XML file at all?

Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks,
Iain
