This is an instruction guide for an OEM project .

There are 4 necessary steps to this process. 

1.  Create an ICC profile in an external application such as X-Rite i1Profiler

2.  Install that ICC profile in the Navigator system

3.  Create a color management configuration.

4.  Configure your workflow to use that configuration

This guide covers only steps 2, 3, and 4.

Step 2.  Install your ICC profile.

Just copy it here:

That path is C:\\Navigator\Navigator\Config\RenderConfig\ICC Profiles.

Step 3.  

Configure your color management settings so that you may use them in your workflow.

Open up Navigator Configurations Editor.  There will be a shortcut on the desktop.

The top left field is the name of the configuration which you will use in your workflow.

If you want to copy the settings of a previous config and just make a change to use a new ICC profile, hit the button between the + and the trash.  That button is two files and is a "duplicate my configuration" button.

Your printer/paper profile is here called an "Output profile".

Additional choices are described in the ColorPro manual and in section 2 of this manual in more detail but the settings shown below are what was settled on for the test system at CV.

Note:  On "Preserve 100% process black.  This is an important checkbox to understand in label printing.

In ordinary color management other inks may be put underneath the black to darken it.  This can allow you to achieve very dense blacks and shadow areas.  However in text printing it may be undesired as slight misregistration can cause the undercolors (C,M, or Y) to slip out and make the edge of the text fuzzy or indistinct or less crisp.  This check box, when checked, causes color management to freely add CM&Y to K in percentages between 1% and 99% but causes 100% K to be printed only with the black ink.  This makes for distinct, sharp black text. 

Unchecking this box allows color management to add CM&Y to any value of K, at the discretion of the color management engine and the profile you have chosen.

Step 4. 

Choose your new paper profile in your workflow.
