    proof ?

    normaly i donīt print from lightroom and i have just started to look into LR 4 softproofing.

    now there is a point "proof" in the settings menu.

    i wonder what that is for?
    it seems not to affect softproofing.

    When checked, that means that this file is a proof. Normally this is triggered automatically when you are in soft proofing mode and make a change in Develop; it asks you whether you want to make a Virtual Copy, and that VC is your proof copy.

    A proof copy is just like any other VC, except that the output profile is stored with it so that the Print module can set it properly.

    ah.. so itīs just a info if it is meant to be a proof or not.

    i wondered because it doesnīt matter for the "proof" option under "settings" if i check or uncheck the checkbox for softprofing.

    thanks!
