I'm having a hard time with this too and I know CDTobie has mentioned it more than once: Here's my understanding (someone please review and correct) The use "printer color management" checkbox passes the printer profile name to the printer driver, where the driver may or may not use this information --e.g., to apply the profile--depending on the driver. The "Space" dropdown menu is used by Photoshop to apply the chosen profile to the image data--i.e., convert to the chosen color space--before handing the data to the driver. I'm not clear on how these interact. I think these controls exist for entirely difference and contradictory reasons: something like the Space dropdown allows application of a profile for printer drivers that can't do space conversion, and the "printer color management" box having to do with getting profile information to the next stage of processing in a Postscript (or PDF) workflow.
