Black Settings in Profilemaker

We are preparing to do a new press profiling run and I wanted to ask:

What do you recommend for the black settings in Profilemaker and why?

We use a high amount of GCR, MaxK, and I’ve had the black settings at the following in the past:
Black Start 0%
Black Width 100%
Black Max 100%

I ask because I’ve seen various amounts of each recommended and just wondered what you’d think about these settings considering I’m using MaxK?

Thanks,
Terry

Optimal GCR level can depend on the content of the file and how the press operators run their press. MaxK can work very well, but might not be appropriate for say, flesh tones, particularly if the press operator likes to crank black density for text or shadow depth. There’s not really one answer to what settings are ideal for all situations and different software will yield different results.
