    Actually - reinstalling the printer seems to have done. I forgot that OS upgrades can wipe the profile installation.

    ColorSync now appears to be requiring me to select a paper  profile as well as in the ON1 print dialog. Is that expected ? What about the Canon Colour Matching - is that useable now and if so would it be better or worse ?

    I can't help with your printing questions but I can with the profiles part. I don't have a printer so I can't even get into that portion of the program.

    In the Editor, under the View menu there is the section used for Soft Proofing. You can Import printer profiles from there. They get placed into ~/Library/Application Support/ON1/Common 202x. You can also put copies there in the Finder and they will show up probably the next time the program is launched. Possibly without having to restart the program.

    If you use Canon Colour Matching your printer sets the colour. There is a tab in the printer setting where you can/have to set the colours to your taste. When you let the software decide then the photo will be sent to the printer as is. It more what you see is what you get, although some correction is needed because screen and paper never match 100%. I made extra layers for the papers I use which I add when I want to print.
    Robin Whalley made two youtube film about softproofing in On1 2020 and Scot Davenport also discussed printing. I found them very informative.

    Thanks guys - I must have had all this sorted out at one point and then it looks like after a few OS and ON1 upgrades it's all forgotten now ! I'll work through these ideas and no doubt that'll get me back on the road.

    "[S]ome correction is needed because screen and paper never match 100%…"

    This is what the color profiles are all about. If you have correctly profiled your monitor and you are using the correct color profiles for the ink/printer combination you are using then the program doing the printing and the OS will take care of getting the correct colors on the paper.

    I used to create my own printer profiles when I had a Canon printer and I never had any problems with color shift.
