Well, I finally decided to post this, hoping either that I am missing something, or that there is a quick workaround. I have been testing a large number of papers on my Epson 4900, after installing beaucoup profiles from the paper manufacturers. The biggest inconvenience in doing this is that I want to make a custom colorproofing setting for each paper in CS5. The problem is that after saving the test picture to its folder with the layer group that adjusts the softproof, when I open the custom softproof dialogue and scroll around for the next profile to use, when I go to save it, CS5 takes me to the folder where I saved the picture file.
I then have to browse and drill down through C:\Users\Myname\Appdata\Roam\Adobe\Color\Proofing to save the custom proofing setup. After a bunch of papers, this gets really, really tiresome. Is there any way to make the proofing folder "sticky," so that I don't have to go through this process every time? If not, and if Eric is lurking, please tell Adobe to address this.
