Thanks Alex - that was/is it. It only works for new documents if one enables "Activate Color 
Management" *BEFORE* one creates a document.

To clarify: If an existing document was created before "Activate Color Management" was enabled, 
then said existing document can never have "Color Management" applied to it. Yes?

Blessings and thanks,
