[By Design] Issues with ICC profiles

Recommended Posts

I stumbled upon an issue with ICC profiles. Not exactly a nasty bug, but an annoying condition that can lead to a frozen app and should be caught.

In C:\Program Files\Affinity\Publisher\Resources\icc I had created a subfolder named "other" for all ICC profiles that I don't use. Opening a document that was created using one of those profiles causes two problems:

  1. color will look like the neon of the 80ies
  2. calling "Document Setup" from the menu will freeze Publisher

I falsely attributed such an app lock to a recent OS update. But really, after putting back all ICC profiles into their original place, colors went back to normal and calling Document Setup worked as expected.

My proposal would be to somehow detect documents that want to use a non-present color profile and let users decide what to do.
