    Hi,

    When printing from InDesign CS3, is it possible to have the printer driver handle color management rather than the application?

    I haven't really been able to find an answer to this.

    Thanks!

    It's called ColorSync and it's been a part of the MacOS since 1915.

    With a Postscript 3 compatible printer yes. You can set the InDesign Print dialog box to let the printer manage color.

    With a non-postscript printer you can specify an icc profile for your printer and paper but InDesign manages color.
