No Softproof for Canon Pixma 8350a?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

a week ago i bought the Canon Pixma 8350a.

With my older Pixma 6150 I could make a softproof before printing. When I am looking into the Adjustment layer "Softproof" I only find the papers for the Pixma TS6150 - but none for the Canon Pixma TS8350 or TS8350a. Not even for the TS8300 Series.

Is it possible Affinity forgot this printer, even though it prints good? Or does anyone know how I can install the right softproof profiles?

That would be great. Thanks to all who try to help me with this problem.

You would probably download and install them from the Canon website when it after you install the drivers.

Thanks for this idea. There are only ICC Profiles for the pro versions of the printers. I think it is a mistake on the Affinity software, because the a paper selection appears on every other software. Right at the MomentI have no idea how to change this.

What color format (RGB, CMYK) have you specified for the document?

I think there are some reported problems with not showing ICC profiles for CMYK documents. But from the printer documentation, it expects RGB data so that's probably what you should be using in your document setup.
