Please advise on the right steps and settings for printing from InDesign to an inkjet printer. I'm using a Mac, the printer is a Canon Pro-1000, I have a custom ICC profile. My working RGB is Adobe.

The Canon Pro-1000 installs its media .icc profiles as a bundle. The path sould be something like /Library/Printers/Canon/BJPrinter/Resources/ICCProfiles/PRO1000series.canonicc.

 

If you have a custom profile you want to add to the printer media list, you can control click the PRO1000series.canonic bundle to see its contents and add other .icc RGB output profiles:

Once you have added your profile to the bundle it should show up in the dropdown under InDesign>Print>Printer...>Layout>Printer Settings.

 

I don’t have a Canon printer installed, but it works as I’ve described above for my Epson:

Here is the list of my Epson output profiles:

Are you printing to the Canon, or sending a file to someone else to print?

Actually I’m not sure installing your custom profile in the Canon printer bundle will work—I’ve never tried it with a custom profile.

 

So to start with you could try copying your custom profile into one of OSX’s profile folders such as /Users/username/Library/ColorSync/Profiles and then choose it as the Printer Profile under Color Management when you choose Print

You still will need to choose Printer... to set the printer output resolution:

Do you mean print direct from InDesign to Inkjet, not using PDF & Acrobat?

I am curious regarding this since I also use the Canon Pro-1000 but cannot seem to get consistent colours when printing directly from Indesign. I am only able to get correct colours when using Canon's own "Professional Print & Layout" application. But that is cumbersome when dealing with Indesign since it only accepts TIFFs. I suspect that I need somehow to disable colour correction in macOS's print dialog, but I'm not sure where and how to do this...
