When you've opened the softproof VC and selected side-by-side, another control opens. This control allows you to select the source of the non-VC side of the display. It seems to default to "Master copy." This is probably not what you wanted. In the case I worked through, the master copy was the original image, in PV2010 and not the copy that was used in the making the softproof, which was a VC updated to PV2012, with completely different development.
Check your choices, maybe there is an image listed that is what you want.
Thanks, Gerald & Alan. I checked out Gerald's link and your suggestion, Alan. Neither gives me what I'm looking for.
Trying Alan's solution put the VC on the left, the final-edited tiff on the right, but gave me a way only to edit the tiff, not the VC.
I tried selecting the final version Tiff on the left and the VC on the right, then going to Develop. Without going to Softproof, I was able to edit the VC to look more like the tiff. However, I'm not sure if that is really doing what I want, which is be adjust the VC better than it had been.
If Jeff Shewe or DigitalDog come across this and understand what I am trying to do, I'd appreciate some input; namely, answers to these questions:
1) With the final version of my tiff on the left and the VC with the name that includes my paper profile on the right, does the display show the original file correctly and the previously-made Softproof VC with the profile also show correctly (as it would print) even without the paper border that would come up if I were to hit "S"?
2) If so, then if I were to further adjust the VC to better match the original, would I be accomplishing what I want, or would there be some kind of double profiling happening?
If this method is not correct, is there a way to accomplish what I want?
