Lightroom Bug - 5.2 still using Main Display profile during soft proofing on external Display

As previously discussed with Eric Chan on the Luminous Landscape forum:

When soft proofing in Lightroom on an external display (NEC Spectraview 271 in my case), Lightroom uses the main display profile (Macbook pro in my case) instead of the external display profile. This results in an incorrect soft proof and is a setup used by many professionals. A work around is to set the main display profile to use the external profile.

This was discussed with Eric Chan previously (recently) so I realise it may take longer to fix but wanted to make sure the Lightroom team are aware the issue has not been fixed in 5.2

Best regards,

Tom
