I have a document i'd like to print from InDesign. I think there's something wrong beacuse all colors are reddish.
I just checked the printer and toner is OK, but I think there's something inside the printing properties:
Can you suggest me a solution?
Create a PDF and print from that.
In that case it works, but is it the right procedure?
Absolutely the right procedure. For commercial printing check with your printer, but normally you select PDF/X-4, supply single pages (not spreads) and tick Use Document Bleed Settings and Crop Marks.
Thanks, but why using those marks? My printer is not a full-page one, so I would get a smaller printing area.
If I omiss them, I'll get the maximum area available.
You'll note I said use crop marks etc for commercial printing – if you're using a desktop printer with a smaller page size for proofing purposes then obviously, leave them off!
Based on your screen grab:
Your current settings are set to have InDesign do do the colour conversion, which is fine, but you've selected a profile for your MONITOR as your printer profile.... You are not printing to your monitor.
Your Printer profile should be an ICC for your actual Printer model, if that's your ultimate destination. or a common colour space like any Offset CMYK space. (e.g. US Sheetfed), if you're going on to print your files at a commercial printer.
Other than that, as suggested, make a PDF and print from there.
