Indeed. I was remarking on what seems to be a permanent cultural and technological gap between Macs and PCs. In this case case changing output levels to a specific number is simple on a PC but much harder on a Mac.

Like for instance the X-Rite calibrating device I use doesn’t have the option of setting my monitor to a specific output level. The software sets it to whatever the designers thought it should be.

that is odd. Xrite i1 Profiler software allows the user to choose brightness level.

Which doesn’t mean that the display will necessarily actually produce that brightness level.
