ColorSync and Epson Color Controls are grayed out on the Mac OS 10.7 with LR 4.x (including 4.3) when specifying an ICC profile in the LR Print Module. Thus I can't turn off Color Matching in the Epson driver (2880 - printer). The monitor has been calibrated and the resultant prints are color shifted and much to dark.

Using the same printer on the same file, with the same LR settings and icc profile on Windows 7; you can set the Epson driver to No color Management and everything works like it should; the print is a great match to the screen.

Those controls are supposed to be grayed out in the printer driver - because the application is managing color and the driver is not supposed to to any color management.

That should work on Windows as well, but not all drivers follow the standards.
