The color register mark at the top of the Color Settings dialog window sometimes is a gray circle with an exclamation point, instead of the colored register mark showing the pie outbreak when color settings are not in sync. What would make it gray and prompt you to look at color settings?

It means the colour settings of your Adobe applications are out of synch.

Hi John. Thanks for the post. Actually though, when the color settings are out of sync the top right segment of the register mark "pie" juts out and the "unsyncronized" info comes up. What I’m referring to is that, at random times, there is no color register mark at the top left of the color settings dialog window and in its place is just a gray circle (almost like a talk balloon in the comics) and there is a black exclamation point in it. Usually, on by system everythng displays correctly with the color register mark that is intact when color settings are in sync and disjointed if they are out of sync, but I don’t know what causes this other thing.

Thanks.

Is it just that the icon isn’t loading?

I’m not sure. It happened to me several times over the last couple of months and then it recently happened to a colleague at work. I "think" is said something about "Refer to color settings information…" but I really need to look at it, the next time it happens, and write down exactly what it says. It allowed full use of the color settings window, it just didn’t give any indication whether other programs were in or out of sync with each other.

Well, my color settings are deliberately unsynchronized across the suite, but the pie is there – with one slice jutting out.

Maybe you settings are really, really unsynchronized… (just kidding).
