Monitor calibration gives crazy results in QXP2015

Post by ampegg66 » 15 Feb 2016, 19:49

I just moved from QXP v9.5 to 2015, and I calibrated my monitor to my printer's specs using Kodak Matchprint Virtual (the same process we've been using forever). It's caused Quark's previews to go crazy. Some images are completely blown out, and others show wild color variations.

The top attachment shows fairly normal colors on the left (Quark Generic RGB profile), and both images and Quark colors completely blown out on the right (using either Automatic or the calibrated monitor profile).

The bottom attachment shows the Quark Generic RGB monitor profile on top, and the Automatic or calibrated monitor profile below.

PDF output appears normal, and other applications are working normally.

Any idea what's going on here?

Thanks for any info.
