Why Convert Color's output intent is grayed off

Convert Colors dialog's "Output Intent" check box and profile are being grayed off. Hence cannot use that option at all. Why is it grayed off in Acrobat XI??

Take a look at the documentation: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/using/WS58a04a822e3e50102bd615109794195ff-7b9a.w.html

It says " This choice is not available if the document does not have an output intent. (PDFs that don't comply with standards, such as PDF/X or PDf/A, often lack an output intent.)"

So, I assume that your document does not have an output intent.

I can confirm that this feature has been changed with Acrobat XI; in Acrobat X, it was possible to select it, to specify a profile, and the colors were converted to that profile, and that profile was set as Output Intent.

In Acrobat XI, one has to first specify the Output Intent (which would mean an according Fixup in Preflight). Then, it is possible to do the color conversion.

But then, one could wonder why not do the color conversion in Preflight.

Hope this can help.
