I am using Lightroom 4.1 and want to create a book with the new module. Unfortunately, I cannot select an icc-profile (Blurb-icc profile) when doing a softproof. All other profiles I can select. Please could you give me a hint, why I can not select the blurb icc profile? It is located where all the other profiles are located also on my mac (Library/ColorSync/Profiles). And here is the download link for the profile:

Thanks and regards,

Yes, the Blurb ICC profile is a cmyk profile, and not supported by the LR soft proof feature at this time.
