Missing profiles in 'Soft Proof with Profile' - where have they gone?

Hi,
I've just attempted to view a design with a soft proof profile and it seems more than 50% of the options that were once available are gone.
Is this something to do with upgrading to OSX Catalina recently?
In particular I'm looking for US Web Coated (SWOP) v2.
Any advice appreciated
Thank you
Gordon

I have a feeling those profiles may have been part of another app, possibly an older copy of Photoshop? If that has been removed, the profiles would have probably disappeared too, as they are made to be available system-wide but are, ultimately, part of the app. However, you may be able to find the profiles online if you search for "US Web Coated (SWOP) v2 ICC profile download" or the like.

Hi Andrius
Thanks for the response and apologies for the delay in getting back to you - the notification was in my spam folder for some reason.
Your explanation makes perfect sense now that you mention it.
I did have Photoshop but with the upgrade can no longer use it.
Thanks for the tip too.
Best wishes
Gordon

Yeah, that's a known issue, Google doesn't seem to be a fan of our forum notifications.
