Chapter 87. Color Management > Soft-Proofing Colors

Soft-Proofing Colors

In QuarkXPress, you may have used the Display Simulation popup menu in the Color Management Settings dialog box to simulate different output conditions using your monitor. InDesign has the same capability, called soft-proofing. (Alternatively, hard-proofing is proofing on hard copy output.) InDesign makes soft-proofing a feature of the View menu, which is unlike XPress but once again like its Adobe brethren Photoshop and Illustrator. Under the InDesign View menu you’ll find the Proof Colors and Proof Setup commands. Here’s how they correspond to XPress’s soft-proofing features.

First of all, there isn’t a direct InDesign equivalent to the XPress’s Monitor Color Space option. Whenever Enable Color Management in InDesign’s Color Settings dialog box is turned on, colors are adjusted to the monitor color space.
