Indesign uses the only main monitior profile to display images.  It took my quite a while to find out whats wrong, because the color management was configured correctly.
this one is still an issue. Are you planing to change that? This is a bug since 2012.

Hi @patschili , The thread you linked to is 12 years old—I’m not seeing any color management problems with InDesign using OSX. Can you share some screen captures showing the problem you are experiencing?

 

Unlike Photoshop,  InDesign doesn’t have a single document color space, you can mix CMYK, RGB, and Lab spaces on the same page and every document has both an RGB and CMYK profile assignment to handle different color objects, so ID’s color management is more complex than Photoshop’s.

Hi Rob, Thanks for your answer.
Yes it is 12 Years old, yet it is still an existing issue it seems.
I took Screenshots with the snipping Tool from Windows. I am able to reproduce the issue, by changing the main screen in the built in MultiScreen Menu in Windows 11 before I launch Indesign.
I use two Screens. One is a common LG Panel, the other one is a regulary calibrated EIZO CG241W.

Windows Version: Windows 11 Home N  - Version: 22H2
Indesign: 18.1 x64

Sorry, I can’t help with Windows, but on OSX I can calibrate and profile both my monitors and InDesign uses the two profiles. My main monitor is Built-in Retina and the 2nd monitor is an old Cinema display:

Here is a capture from both—on OSX screen captures get the monitor profile assigned, which is listed in the lower left corner:
