"Your current color settings discard CMYK profiles in linked content" error message

I keep getting the following error message:

"Your current color settings discard CMYK profiles in linked content but profiles were set to be honored when this document was created."

every time I open an Illustrator document. I have no idea how this setting was set and no idea how to turn it off. I am just using the standard N America Prepress color setting in Bridge.

I have tried opening new documents using the supplied Ai CS4 new document profiles, no luck. So I am assuming it's a pref that is set in the app itself, yet I have no idea how to change this setting? I don't even see anything referring to a setting like this.

I found this archived discussion: http://www.adobeforums.com/webx?128@@.59b58d84 which had no resolution. Thought I would throw it out there again and see if anyone has been able to fix this. It drives me insane having to deal with that error every time I open a saved document.

change the settings to 'convert to working spaces'

unchek the three boxes 'ask blah-blah-blah...'

I get the same error message.  I tried to follow the advice of Unchecking the three "ask..." boxes, and it did not fix the issue.

This has ONLY been an issue since my company upgraded to CS4.

Please help!

You guys probably are using linked images and therefore the message which is unavoidable unless your profiles match and you probably want them to match, so the way to avoid this would be to sync your color settings in all your Adobe applications and use the same color space for the document and the placed images.

More than likely you have CMYK document with RGB images?

Wade - I hear what you are saying regarding a profile mismatch with linked images, however that is not the issue in my case.  We are getting this error message with files that have NO linked content, as well as those with links.

Also, when it appears with the items that DO have linked images, I have checked and all those images are already in the correct profile.  We made sure to have everyone set the profile we is in Adobe Bridge so as to avoid profile mismatches.

I am ANNOYED by the same error message, too. It's a MAJOR PAIN. Get rid of it, Adobe!

I also get the error with files that have no linked content at all.

And, I have already gone into Bridge and created a custom setting to force conversion of all files to Adobe RGB and SWOP and turned off all 3 warnings and Synchronized across the Suite. Same thing. Always the same message. Even with files I've created completely from scratch after synchronizing settings, meaning they were definitely NOT created under any old color settings that honored CMYK profiles.

This is not 'designed behavior' for Illustrator. It's a bug. And an annoying one because the error message also interrupts SCRIPTING automation.......

Anyone find a solution to completely disabling this error message?

To disable the alert via scripting you can use the following line:

{

app.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevel.DONTDISPLAYALERTS;

}

Put it in a function with null return and call the fuction where you want to supress any error dialog.

Mind you this would supress all the alert dialogs of the Illustrator App.

Thanks for the reminder about the application level warning function options. But, as you noted, that will turn off all warnings, which in some cases you may not want....

I'm wondering if the CMYK honoring profiles message will go away if I recreate a fresh copy of a blank CMYK user prefs template file?.....anyone try that yet?....don't have time to test right now, but will later...

There is nothing to be fixed with the warning.

The only thing that needs fixing is not knowing about color management.

Well, i am not expert and i dont know if i make something wrong, but i have the same problem with the error alert about the color settings in CS5, and what i did work for me just fine.

menu edit > color settings > color management policies

change the settings to 'convert to working spaces'

Close the program,

I went to Library - Preferences - Adobe illustrator CS5 Settings - en_US and delete the Ai color settings file....i re-open the program and it automatically generate a new ai color setting file and thats it...

I think it can work also for the cs4.

Hope it works for anybody having the same problem.

olemexico - thank you so much ... it worked! I'm using CS3 - have been for many years without this issue but just recently it started up.. every single time I open any file no matter how I created it.. linked files or not ' error message 'your current settings honour cmyk profiles in linked content... yadda yadda' - driving me nuts!  but your solution has fixed it.

Not sure if the glitch started from recently trying out creative cloud or a job I've been working on that required using live-trace on RGB jpgs, editing, then saving as CMYK... hmm?

Anyways - thought I'd report it works on CS3 as well - made my day as I have an aweful lot of files to work on!

Exactly what is it that you want to change?

Emulating Illustrator 6 won't solve any problems, it will only create some.

Emulating Illustrator 6 has only made sense in the days of Illustrator 6. And then you didn't need to emulate it.

For everyone who has searched this annually since early 2000s,  I have chased this for over a decade since Adobe introduced this in some CS4 or CS5 Illustrator version. I have spent many go arounds with Adobe over the years on support getting no resolution until March 2017. After spending two nights debating with tech support while they remotely tested my MacBook Pro they found a resolution that has evaded everyone for many years.

In Adobe Illustrator CC2017 under Edit > Color Settings > Color Management Policies set RGB to Preserve Embedded Profiles and CMYK to Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles). Then after experiencing the annoying window once Save As your file to replace the older file and the window will no longer warn you.

So here is the logic according to Adobe Support after I debated them for two nights. We run a high end RIP and color manage everything for proofing for an ad agency and photography studio and have done so since around 2004. We were told how critical color management was then and so therefore Converted and Saved ALL profiles to our Working Profiles of Adobe RGB 1998 and US Sheetfed Coated v2 since they first became an option in software. All other software worked fine and proofs have been precise for years but the "Your current color settings discard CMYK profiles in linked content but profiles were set to be honored when this document was created," warning windows have plagued us for every file opened since these early days of CS Illustrator versions.

When Adobe Support worked on case 0188718247 he saw what was happening and gave several other attempts at solutions only for me top prove it did not work and he saw the Warning Window eventually. On the second night he came back from a long hold and said he thought he found the answer. Contrary to the logic of the English words in what the Warning Window states, "Your current color settings discard CMYK profiles in linked content but profiles were set to be honored when this document was created," Adobe refers to anything that may have changed from the first time the file is saved. Readers assume it was something the reader did that made it say this. It is actually the engineering process Adobe used that when saved creates it.

This is complicated so follow me as best that I understood it. Adobe created Color Profiles as they are engineered for Pantone Colors for Photoshop and Illustrator in differing ways because of transparency with vector differing from the same ways in which bitmaps work in Photoshop. Even if one saves a new file today with new working profiles then the warning will appear since this hidden "Pantone Engineered process" creates a trigger for this endless warning. Although Adobe created this trigger and users/readers of the Warning feel like they created the disruption, it is actually referring to the "HIDDEN" Adobe Pantone Engineering process that makes the warning pop up. Support reset my Color Management Policies for RGB to Preserve Embedded Profiles and CMYK to Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles) and then tested. At first the Warning appeared until the files were resaved to overwrite previous files and then the window no longer activates. Does all this make total sense? Not really as I questioned why Adobe keeps allowing a warning window to be triggered by Adobe's own engineering process? This sounds more like a stubborn logistics issue than a software glitch. It makes Users think they messed something up and Adobe seems clueless that this warning existed for many years.

Hopefully this will end the windows. Does it mess with colors? Nope. We still run the same colors as before off every file to our RIP proofing. It's only a word game being played onscreen so if you prefer to end it, these settings so far have appeared to resolve the warning popups.

Any setting will do as long as you stick to it and don't open files created by people who use a different setup. You need to setup these options so that they match your workflow. That's the whole point about color management.

Maybe you and support were not talking about the same thing, because the warning actually makes perfect sense.

We have understood and practiced color management since early 2000s when this became a critical part of Adobe software and required being synched. We have used the same settings between our employees since back in 2004 or 2005 and we have not opened files created by others more than a handful of times in those years. As I told Adobe Support we have as stable and consistent a color management setup as anywhere could since there are few of us and settings have been synced and never have changed since setup in that early era.

We could even create a new Adobe Illustrator file here, as Adobe Support did several times and saved, only to reopen for the second time and get a warning window. It was relentless and we had not changed any settings at any point. The Warning phrase should make sense with the software but even Adobe Support opted to setup to ignore and ensure they saved the ignored options to the files to stop the warnings. I am still not overly convinced this has ended as I await more Warnings to start at random when we change nothing.

As you stated creating any setting and being consistent should work but that is not the case as Adobe Support also experienced over and over when they assumed Warnings should not pop up saying settings do not match. We have been under the same color management profile settings since 2004 or 2005 when this started and have deviated none. Thus Adobe Support spent about 5 hours total over two days trying to make sense of what they were seeing working on our system remotely. Respectfully, if this was a simple fix, Adobe would have resolved this in minutes for me rather than setup Ignore options. Also there would not have been years of posts accumulating under these threads giving advice but still being an unresolved issue. Although we once were Official Adobe Service Providers in the day they had those programs, we don't profess to being Adobe insider experts to the secrets and failings of logic in their warnings. We have just reported what may be a resolution to recurring problems that others have encountered for more than a decade.

Me neither.

The problem with "this setting solves the problem once and for all" is that people actually believe in it and will literally set up their color management with your example options no matter if it fits for them or not without fully understanding it. And while your RGB/CMYK profile options might not be the worst idea, the color profile you mention won't be applicable for folks outside the U.S.

Different idea on the problem: on what kind of templates are your files based? And which color options are set in your template files or new document profiles?

Adobe Support initially said it did not matter what profiles were chosen as one's Color Management setup as long as one opened the same files which had those same settings there should not have been a Warning window. (It also did not matter from what country either as Adobe Support even entered once for Japanese settings as a test.) Then Adobe Support saw their initial logic was not the case as every file they created and tried to reopen showed the Warning window. So the tech tried hours of other options and the next day after discussing further with other engineers worked on this again and arrived at the recommendation to use the Edit > Color Settings > Color Management Policies set RGB to Preserve Embedded Profiles and CMYK to Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles). Their recommended setup also allows one to Assign color settings to a file that may not be their own and save it.

According to Adobe Support differing color management settings would no longer matter because their recommended options above would preserve all settings and allow whatever settings one may choose to remain but ignores any differences when opening. Thus one's chosen color management options would remain intact and "Adobe's internal hidden" technical reasons why Warning windows open would get ignored. It may not be logically ideal but if it ends our years of clicking Warning boxes closed it solves our time wasting especially when opening numerous files at once.

This is not the ideal solution because Adobe should not need workarounds for "hidden" Adobe Pantone Engineering processes which are causing Warning windows in the first place. They should either resolve the engineering issue or somehow "hide" the popup window if it is only being caused by their internal engineering processes and allow windows to show up if there is a true problem that is not "hidden." If this workaround remains constantly performing as it has so far this week, then we are thrilled to be rid of the Warning Windows.

[Regarding Monika's request for our specific settings, our Working Spaces are RGB: Adobe RGB 1998 and CMYK: US Sheetfed Coated v2. Color Management Policies are now RGB: Preserve Embedded Profiles and CMYK: Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles). Profile Mismatches and Missing Profiles are all off. All Creative Cloud Apps are synced, monitors are spectrophotometer calibrated the same and our RIP runs proofs to G7 GRACoL standards which are spectrophotometer tested and certified for accuracy.]

Thanks for the in depth description of the issue! Between Pantone, CMYK, RGB, Color Profiles on Monitors and Printers, and the different way they display or reproduce in any program/combination of settings, color is such a complex issue. Not to mention, it's subjective and preferential, which is why I've always appreciated a printer's recommendation in an ever growing digital world. That said, I selected "Preserve Embedded Profiles" for CMYK as well and am no longer experiencing the warning at all in CC 2015.3. While in theory these settings may be tricky or incorrect, because there are so many print processes that may be used with prepped art, it will most likely go through a final output workflow on RIP that just prints CMYK to a GRACoL profile anyway, and for RGB do a better job matching color for anything that's out of gamut, for digital prints. While consistency is key, I'm now wondering if file level color profiles are not as big of an issue, since final output would most likely be passed through a more standardized profile applied to them whether it be for web or for print. Even with something as standardized as Pantone, depending on settings colors appear differently, and on display I've noticed difference simply between similar files, when settings look to be the same. Since printing more than 28 Pantone colors is also not supported in Illustrator or InDesign, final output for print assets end up being a hires JPG or PDF, thus nullifying any discrepancies for file level color profiles inside linked content.

To the contrary of what I found yesterday with files that actually had embedded images. Today I'm seeing the warning with a file with no links in it, with "Preserve Embedded Profiles" selected. "Preserve Numbers (Ignore Linked Profiles)" does not show the warning for these files. I tried "Off" and "Convert to Working Space" and both throw the warning. Looks like if one setting isn't avoiding this warning, trying the other may help.

The warning just tells you that the settings were different when the file has been created . So of course switching the setting might avoid the warning. But switching the setting might then mess up your colors. Looks like you prefer messed up colors over being warned.

The warning is not about specific profiles, it is only about the "preserve numbers"/"preserve profiles" setting.

No, I do not prefer "messed up colors", this warning is arbitrary. Even if it's telling me the setup was different, it's not offering a comparison and just opens the file anyway in a presumably incorrect manor based on the warning. Either way, why warn me if you're just going to open regardless? There are so many color discrepancies in Illustrator and this one is just futile.

Please create a new thread.

Tell us your system and version and then exactly what kind of file you are working with and its history. And also which warning exactly you get and how your color management is set up.

Sorry for making alive an older post.

I have the very same problem.

- I am pretty sure my color management done right.

- I did delete color preference,

- I have all setting to Convert to Color Space

- i have my images as RGB,

- Questions unchecked

- my document color mode is RGB and

still getting the very annoying "Your current color settings discard CMYK profiles in linked content but profiles were set to be honored when this document was created."

My Color Settings (RGB for web / CMYK for Newspaper)

You need to set the "Normas de gestion de color" to keep the embedded profile.

To install scripts, please read the documentation:

Automation with scripts in Illustrator

Scripts go into the Scripts folder inside the Presets folder inside the Illustrator application folder.

No, you convert the colors, which is the worst choice, because it does CMYK-to-CMYK conversions which might lead to muddy black.

When you keep profiles you also need to be careful, because it might still do CMYK-to-CMYK conversions when you output a PDF. Depends on how you set up the color management when saving a PDF.

But setting it to "Preserve numbers" which is the "Safe CMYK workflow" will also give you the warning.

Thanks for interesting info Monika 😉

Could you let me know which should be the right way to setup this Color Profile Box or Palette?

- No, you convert the colors, which is the worst choice, because it does CMYK-to-CMYK conversions which might lead to muddy black.

I am sorry i am a bit lost. I setup color this way because i did talk to the Newspaper and they gave me that configuration for work and exporting to PDF for them. I have those setting for about two months now but just a week ago i start receiving the annoying ever present warning.

- But setting it to "Preserve numbers" which is the "Safe CMYK workflow" will also give you the warning.

How should be configured according to your experience?

By the way, why if my Document Color mode is RGB when working on doing Web Banners the CMYK alarms should go on.

Thanks again for your good ideas 😉

I don't know why they gave you that. You will need to analyze your workflow, the kinds of documents you get and what exactly you need to do with them. And then set this up.

I like it to be set to "Preserve numbers", because I can't have CMYK-to-CMYK conversions. I have this setting turned on since it first appeared, which was CS2. So I don't get this warning with my own documents, but of course I get it when I open documents made by other people. I don't have control over their settings.

CMYK vector artwork in an ICC based color management workflow can not be media neutral, because you will always have an issue with black. This is different from pixel artwork and it's different from working with device link profiles.

Please learn color management. This is nothing you can learn in a forum post.

In case you can read German, there is a great free ressource available as a download from cleverprinting.de. I don't know of anything in English that comes even close.

There is of course the paid Lynda/Linkedin training available: Learning Color Management
