What Reference Target should be selected in v8.43 for Printer Target 'printer-target-40.tif'?
There are reference targets including pp-10 through pp-30 but nothing obvious to me for 'printer-target-40.tif'.

Please open the attached link and see the target that should be used.
It is an IT-8 target. I have 2 from over the years, and they work equal to each other. As long as it is stored in a dark and dry place, it retains its color integrity.

The instructions after "Reference Target" included: "Simply look at the name of the data file listed here and make sure that the same name/number is listed on your reference target in the lower right corner." The reference target has 'Printer Target - PP v4.x' listed in the lower right corner. The file listing for ...\Prism\Data doesn't include a file with that name or any other name I can associate with the name printed on the target. The closest to the name in the lower right corner is in a series running from pp-10 through pp-30. I am looking for a dat file to load that will correctly reflect the values on the 'printer-target-40.tif' file set in Printer Target.

Thanks for your help and quick reply,
Jim

Jim,
I have some very old paper targets that say (lower right) Chart Version PP 10 and Chart version PP 18.
They are obsolete.
Proper target is called IT-8
It is an acetate target and has a CHARGE number, lower right. That number should show in the reference target box. You have to scroll for it.
See both screen snaps.

Thanks Fred,

I must have created the printer-target-40.tif a few years ago and forgotten. I assumed incorrectly that it was installed with the software updated recently.
The printing on the bottom of printer-target-40.tif in the Prism directory is in the attachment.
