I just got a new printer and started to make profiles (i1 Match) for all my production papers. When I started ColorThink and opened the Profile Manager window to examine and compare them to the previous profliles I find that the new profiles are listed but the internal name field is empty.
When I click on the new profile I see the file name but not the internal name displayed at the bottom the window. If I try to rename the profile (right click and select rename) the “Internal Name” is now displayed, however if I go ahead and click “Rename” nothing changes. The internal name is still blank in the PM window.
If I double click to open the Profile Inspector and look in the “Header Fields” tab the internal name shows up there.
Next if I try to rename the profile with a new name ColorThink accepts the change but the new internal name is not displayed. Now the profile is stuck in limbo. If I double click to open the Profile Inspector it gives a “Invalid Profile - unable to open” error. Checking the file system I see that the profile file name was actually changed to the new name.
If I restart Color Think I can find the profile again but it still shows a blank Internal name.
Any ideas why this is happening and how do I get the names to show up in the PM window?
PS The forum software would not allow me to put any more characters in the subject so the ending “w” on window is missing.
