An existing file I had been working on about a month ago (with no printing color issues) is now printing colors incorrectly in Indesign 16.1. 

When I convert the file to a pdf and print from acrobat, the colors print correctly.

I synchronized my color settings for all the apps from Bridge 2021 (North America General Purpose 2),

U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2 (also selected on my printer), yet indesign still prints the colors wrong.

 

Please help!

There is a bug with the latest CC2021 update that randomly turns off InDesign’s color management—check your Color Settings before you print and make sure it is not Emulate InDesign 2.0 CMS Off.

Yes, I made sure InDesign's color setting is not InDesign 2.0 CMS Off,  I have it as North America General Purpose 2 and synchronized from Bridge, but still printing colors incorrectly.

So basically until the update arrives, my only work around is creating a pdf and printing the file from acrobat?

Note that in InDesign there is the software workspace and the document workspace. Syncing colour management is not a "fix all problems solution". If you look at proof settings do you have the same colour profile for document and workspace. 

In your print settings you are asking Indesign to send your document CMYK data to the printer, but a Phazer 7800GX is not a sheet ofsett web press and does not respont to CMYK vallues as you want. Proof is a more reasonable setting if you want to see a proof od your colours. The Printer profile should be the profile of your Phazer (and paper).

Could you please better describe your problem if you need more help.

i understand phazer is not a sheet offset web press.

Acrobat and photoshop do print the same file correctly to the phazer and apparently are synchronized to the same setting as indesign.

The print dialog was from InDesign, and that is where there is an error. The Printer Profile should be the Phaser profile. The alternative would be to let your printer handle the colours. Complare it to your prind dialogs from Photoshop or Acrobat. Screen Shot 2021-03-15 at 7.01.36 PM.png

same problem here. While i'am working in Indesign the color settings changes to 'Emulate InDesign 2.0 CMS Off'. The solution is probably sync color profile in Adobe Bridge

It also doesn't work. For me, after this treatment, it also changes the color profile.

I will modestly remind Adobe that this is supposedly a program for professionals, for typesetting and printing. Now I have to check every 5 minutes if the color profile has not been accidentally left. "automatically" replaced?
