Pantone colors displayed incorrectly

Post by Kore » Tue Jan 03, 2012 8:11 pm

I'm new to XnView, so I might be missing something, but when I view (or export) Pantone colors they're wrong. The attached image shows the problem. It's the same file, viewed in Illustrator and XnView (the Illustrator file is correct). It doesn't seem to matter what kind of file it is (eps, pdf, jpg, ia).

Any help would be be HUGELY appreciated.

Have you configured the settings in Tools » Options... » General » ICC?

Thanks for the response.

I hadn't configured the ICC settings, but once I did, it didn't change anything. I pointed the ICC profile to the custom Spyder profile I have, and tried all the Rendering Intent settings, but no luck. Any other ideas?

ICC doesn't quite always work.
I've gotten XnV to agree with PS on one screen, but it's hit and run on others.

I use a Huey, and noticed that it generated an icc for one mon and not another (via hdmi)
