In summary, I can’t get the clipped shadows button to work when I have a printer profile as the output profile.
I’m trying to get some photos printed by a lab and they require the file pre-converted to their profile. So I am editing in RT and saving with their profile as the Output Profile. When I start adjusting with a curve, I notice the clipped shadows are not shown. Clipped highlights are shown. In the following I’ve set the start of the curve to a ridiculous point but still no clipping. All I have to do to see clipping is change the output profile to rtV2_sRGB and I have a very white preview.
Perhaps the profile is no good? But it’s from a pukka commercial outfit. Profile -

As I move the bottom left curve point along, the histogram refuses to indicate clipping, so at least there is consistency with the preview.
I was having this issue with an old RT so have re-built tonight but it’s still there.

Can someone maybe confirm what clipping is in relation to? Rawpedia says
“The main histogram, navigator and clipping indicators will use either the working or the output profile, depending on your setting in Preference > General.”
but there isn’t anything to set in General!
