Export as InDesignMarkup (IDML) ignores the color profile
When exporting an indd-file as an IDML-file we've experienced a problem. In the original file there's an embeded a specific color profile (ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI)).
If we check the exported idml file we found out that InDesign ignores the specific color profile and resets the profile to it's standard profile (U.S. Web Coated (SWOP)) - which is not the desired profile and not suitable for our european print environment.
That was the reason of some color problems with some printing stores or agencys we're working with in the past.
At this time we couldn't find a solution or workaround for that... so we ask the developers to fix this as soon as possible.
Do you need anything else for the solving of this issue.
Thank you in advance!

We have observed a similar behavior in our workflow: after opening an IDML file, it had a SWOP profile as document profile and no longer the original ISOcoated_v2.
The remedy for us is the following procedure: the InDesign with which the IDML file is opened must have a configured color management (i.e. do not leave it in the default setting). The safest way has proven to be to synchronize the color management via Bridge. Afterwards, the output color profiles have been preserved.

Still no reaction regarding our request? Is there any reason and solution for this issue? Thanks!
