Printer Color Management in Illustrator vs Photoshop (Epson/Windows)

I have a Windows 11 PC and Epson ET-8550. When I print from Photoshop, I get the best results when I let the printer manage colors and the assigned color profile is Adobe RGB (1998).

 

In Illustrator, it will not let me choose to have the printer manage the colors.

 

Is it possible let printer determine colors in illustrator if you don't have a postscript printer?

Did you ever figure out the issue? I just got a new Windows 11 laptop and I'm now having the same issue with my Epson ET-15000.

I am also having the same issue. It does get a little confusing trying to get all the color management settings correct. It might be best to export and then print? I don't think the 8550 is a post script printer, and that might be the issue.

Yes.  The Epson print drivers will interpret your Illustrator settings.  I wonder if a little experimenting would be beneficial.  That could be setting up documents for each app that are identical.  Print them ( maybe you already did ) and see if they are similar or way off.
