Dear all,

I'm using these colour settings (btw default settings when I created the document):

When I export it to PDF using the High Quality Print preset I get this warning:

Where could I start looking for the culprit?

Thanks

your preset and output colour intent is different ie Your CMYK working space is different to what the High quality output setting is based on. But dont worry about that warning... it looks more serious than it is in this particular case

As I'm just plunging myself into the InDesign and design world in general I had no idea about what all that meant and just didnt change anything.

In this case, I changed output preset to Press Quality and suddenly the warning went away. 

 

One day I will understand the rest! Thanks!

The warning is a weird non sequitur.

 

It happens when the document’s assigned RGB and CMYK profiles are something other than sRGB and US Web Coated SWOP (Edit>Assign Profiles...) doesn’t seem to matter what the application’s Color Settings are.

 

PDF presets don’t have an option to set source profiles, the source would be the profiles assigned to the document and its placed objects. Obviously there are many cases where you don’t want to assign either sRGB or SWOP as the source profiles.

 

Also, I can modify the [High Quality] preset in a way that has nothing to do with color profiles and the warning goes away—adding crop marks:
