I've set the color management in Acrobat long time ago, but recently I decided to temporarily change the settings. I was curious to check something.
But I noticed that the grayscale images do not respond to the changes. They don't have embedded profiles. I'm not so experienced, but I expected that the appearance of the images will be affected as I switch between different profiles.
For example you have an image converted to Dot Gain 10% and you try to view it with Dot Gain 30% or sGray or Gray Gamma, but not matter I do it all looks the same. Its kind of stuck.
Then I went to the Output Preview and over there the grayscale content is properly responding to the changes of the preview profile.
I don't have this problem with RGB or CMYK content, only with grayscale.
