Photoshop CC 2017: Not printing custom .icc profiles properly in macOS 10.12.1

Photoshop 2017.0.0 is not printing custom .icc profiles properly in OS-X 10.12.1 properly, at least for me. Printing with the same images, the same .icc profiles, from the same computer, to the same printer produces completely different results than prior to 2017.0.0. When using Roy Harrington's "Print Tool", using the same .icc profiles, the images print as expected. It looks to me like Photoshop is not turning of Color Management. 

I am using x-rite's i1-Pro to build profiles and have reprinted targets without color management in "Print Tool" and have rebuilt several color profiles. When overlaying them on the old profile graphs there is no significant difference. Ergo, accurate clean profiles prints properly in a dedicated app, used to print accurately in Photoshop, now don't.

My impression is that the ICC profiles are completely disabled on both lightroom 6.7 and photoshop 13.0.6. The prints are simply getting the generic profile and nothing you can do will change it. I print file in Preview and the profiles work. :-[

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop 13.0.6 and Lightroom 6.7 ignoring specified ICC paper profiles..

Photoshop 13.0.6 and Lightroom 6.7 ignoring specified ICC paper profiles. Printing with generic profile and nothing can be done to change it. that I can discover. File saved before update cannot be printed now. Files do print properly with Apple Preview including ability to specify correct profile.

Discarding and reinstalling the print driver solves this issue in both PS and LR
It does not solve the continual crashing on print for PS 13.0.6 but that is another story. Saving the file before printing usually works to avoid the crash.
