In conjunction with the PageDeviceColorSpaceProfileURI parameter, this parameter defines the rendering behavior for elements presented in a device color space.

Element Information

Name Value
Element Type
Scoping Prefix
This applies to XPS Documents only and should not be used in arbitrary PrintTickets.
XPS-compliant consumers MUST enforce that a URI reference to a resource such as an image or color profile in either a Print Capabilities document or PrintTicket MUST refer to a part name (a relative URI to the package root) within the same XPS Document package that contains the resultant PrintTicket. A compliant XPS consumer MUST NOT use a URI that is not compliant with the part name syntax. These settings are XPS specific.
URIs which are referenced in either a Print Capabilities document or PrintTicket MUST NOT be resolved as URLs. This is unsafe as they may not resolve as intended and may create harmful security risks for the driver and operating system.

Structure Variables

The following table outlines the characteristics of the variables defined in the XML structure.

Name Data type Unit Supported values Summary
Valid fully qualified name as defined by Namespaces in XML. If no namespace is specified, default namespace is assumed.
The name of the option.
True, False.
Defines an Option which when selected would disable this feature.

Extensible Markup Language (XML) Content

The public Print Schema keywords are defined in the namespace. The public Extensible Markup Language (XML) content for this keyword is defined below:

<psf:Feature name="psk:PageDeviceColorSpaceUsage">
  <psf:Property name="SelectionType">
    <psf:Value xsi:type="xs:string">PickOne</psf:Value>
  <!-- If the device determines that the profile specified by the PageDeviceColorSpaceProfileURI parameter can be used as a device color space profile, all elements using the same profile are treated as already being specified in device color space. All other elements MUST use the profile specified for that element.
If the profile cannot be used as a device color space profile, elements using the profile MUST be color managed like any other element using the color profile. -->
  <psf:Option name="psk:MatchToDefault" />
  <!-- If the profile specified by the PageDeviceColorSpaceProfileURI parameter has a number of channels matching the number of primaries of the device, it SHOULD be used instead of the devices internal color management for all elements. Elements using this profile are assumed to be in device color space and will not be color managed further. -->
  <psf:Option name="psk:OverrideDeviceDefault" />
