    Nice improvement, I always disliked to find that the export in Jpeg could not be set to RGB. But why doesn't PNG have the Option of embedding the chosen color profile? Why is there no simulation of overprint when you export to Jpeg? anywhere in Illustrator? And Pantone is not simulator very well either.
    At the moment I find that exporting to a bitmap format gives the best Result when I:
    1. save the illustrator file as EPS
    2 place the EPS in InDesign
    3 have InDesign to show overprint
    4 export to jpeg from InDesign, with overprint simulation ON

    That being said, I Think it should be possible with Adobe Technology to het a similar Result from Illustrator. But then someone should improve the Application.

    It looks like version 26.0.3 does a colorconversion from AdobeRGB to sRGB when saving for web, but is doesn't save the profile in the png-file. Saving as PNG and Saving for Screens does not colorconvert, and does not embed a profile. A webbrowser like Safari is capable of reading embedded profiles, but doesn't find one in the PNG that is created in Illustrator. Each situation is bad, so you get the wrong colors in webbrowsers when starting off with something else then sRGB in Illustrator. But nowadays webbrowsers are capable of reading and respecting embedded profiles. And P3 is going to be the new sRGB and has a wider gamut. So why should we stick with the old sRGB while our environment has changed and webbrowsers are smart enough to read embedded profiles? The only solution seems to me that programmers at Adobe should improve the way Illustrator works. That means: any png or jpg that is being exported should have the current document RGBprofile embedded in it. On top of that it should be a users choice to convert to sRGB, and have that embedded as a profile. Just like what Photoshop does. And when you're at it: the same goes for InDesign.
    And as Ton says: when placing an image with an embedded profile, Illustrator completely ignores the profiles. This is so unprofessional!
    These problems are there for many years already without Adobe doing anything to solve it.

    From Photoshop you can choose to embed a colorsynprofile when saving or exporting to png. I need that in Illustrator as well. Webbrowsers are smart enough to recognise icc-profiles and adjust display appropriately. Illustrator needs to have this option as well, and save the currently assigned rgb-profile when exporting

    Background:

    • CC libraries does not have support for Global Process Colors
    • Some users have spoken about InDesign – InDesign does not support Global Process colors
    • Illustrator does support process colors , global process colors and spot colors. The issue is specefic to global process colors – since it is not supported in CC Libraries. We have added the request to support in CC libraries backlog,

    Workaround:

    • Create Process colors in Illustrator and add it to CC libraries – deselect the global checkbox

    Almost solved, still not there yet. When you apply a global color from the CC library the color gets added to your illustrator document, but the name has changed to some hexadecimal value. Which, if you look at it, is also in the name when it gets added to the library. So why is the name of the color changing? And if it was just a processcolor (not global), the color isn't added to my next Illustrator-document if I just click on it when an object is selected (I have to right click in te library to add it to my document) . O yeah, by the way: the spot color from Illustrator has a CMYK value/alternative instead of Lab. With LAB you would have a better representation of the color, but illustrator doesn't store them as book colors. So still not quite there. When I add a Pantone color from InDesign the color has an RGBvalue as book color in Illustrator, not Lab anymore. Why do I feel that I do the research for Adobe?

    >>> Is no one testing this before they give us the update? You drive me crazy (to say it politely).
