Can follow to Main tab of driver. However, there is no Manual setting that I can see. Instead, under Main, there is a COLOR MODE with a sub choice of COLOR SETTINGS with sub 1:Color Adust 2: Matching 3 Clear Coating. Under 2 "Matching are the following: a Driver Matching, b ICC Profile Matching, c ICM, d OFF

No problems with setting printer .icc in Qimage "Printer profile." Just worried about the a, b, c settings above in combination with using a" printer profile" chosen in Qimage

Have tried to get tech help from Canon by phone which is usually very, very, good. In this case they just said it was a question for Qimage and am unable so far to get answer from them (again, usually great help).

With Windows you need to set Color Settings to OFF in the driver. This may be worded differently in different printer drivers. Qimage, like all good printing apps is designed to use Application Color Management, which means that the printer driver (and OS) is told to NOT do any ICC profile conversions as they have been done by the application under tighter control.
