Resolved issues

The following technical issues have been resolved in ColorProof Please note that the list describes the original problem, not the solution.

Automatic upload from OpenColor not possible
After installation of ColorProof 5.10 the refresh/download of OpenColor ProofStandards was no longer possible. Jobs aborted with an error. [01908]

Rotation of 1-bit data slowing down
Rotation of a large number of 1-bit files on systems with a lot of Workflows and Hotfolders caused processing to slow down noticably over time, especially on systems without SSD drives. [01416]

Wrong validation of workflows
Validation of Workflow parameters was faulty in cases of  adding an unavailable ProofStandard (e.g. one not available for the selected media). The workflow could be created in spite of being inoperable. [01901]

Proof certification failed with all-caps channel names
Proof certification/validation failed with jobs that contained all-capitals channel names (e.g. CYAN). No label was printed and the job showed an XML error in the job history "Could not load the Print Standard definition XML". [01391]

No job creation using custom spot colors without target values
Attempting to create a job accessing a custom spot color without target values and validating using the GMG Spot color control strip V2 resulted in the job not being built. [01807]

End of Life

Please note, that we will no longer provide bug fixes, maintenance releases, workarounds, or patches for bugs found in or older.
