When Soft Proofing is first checked and the user does not press the "Create Proof Copy" button, the user must actually make an adjustment in order to be offered the the option to "Make This a Proof."  This seems backward to users who already know that they want to "Make This a Proof." They want a proactive, rather than reactive, user experience.

The easiest solution would be to add a "Make this a Proof" button to the Soft Proofing Panel.  The user would be able to press either the "Create Proof Copy" or the "Make this a Proof" button.

A solution that does not require modifying the Soft Proofing panel would be to add two menu items to the Develop menu: "Create Proof Copy" and "Make this a Proof."  The items would only be available if (a) Soft Proofing is checked and (b) the file is not already a proof.
