How to embed CMYK color profile using Scribus in Windows

Screenshot for Printer options

I'm trying to embed CMYK profile using Scribus. The input file is in CMYK color space.

I enabled color management. I tried to Save As PDF. In the color tab, I have selected the output intended for Printer. When I tried to choose the color profile the ICC profiles for CMYK are not listed. Only the RGB profiles are getting listed.


hi grace69

if you activate the color management and export your file to another .pdf format than .pdf/x-3 or x-4 with the output intended for 'printer', scribus will convert your file to the cmyk profile selected in 'document setup' → 'color management' → 'printer'.
the setting in your screenshot is meant to allow for a color managed rgb output.
