Hello, softproofing over a master page does not seem to work. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but if I put the master page with the softproofing profile on the top level, it won't be accepted.

Hello, everybody,
I have found the solution to this problem: You have to create a parent layer on the softproof master page. Underneath this, the new adjustment level "Softproof". 
Then transfer the master page to all pages, select the softproof level there, select "edit linked" and put the level at the very top.

One more note: before exporting PDF/X-4 the soft proof layer must be deactivated again. Otherwise black overprinting will not work - this may be a bug.

The soft proof adjustment needs to be deactivated in Photo, too, before printing.

It makes sense that it needs to be deactivated before exporting, but I'm not sure what all of the effects would be if it weren't. Certainly I would expect colors to be incorrect in the exported file if the adjustment were left active, and that could affect overprinting, I guess.
