Changing color management presets easily?

I run three different printing and engraving systems at the same time with my business. Each system needs to have a different color management preset selected or the prints are screwed up. Each time I open a file I have to go to tools..color management ... default settings. and check or change the preset. It seems like half of my day is spent doing this and from time to time I forget and screw up a print. Is there a macro or docker or something that will display what preset is in use on my screen some where and maybe even give me an option to click on it and change the preset? Each file is normally only for one particular system so if there is a way to save the file so that the preset that was used when saving it comes back up when it is opened would be helpful too. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thank you

    Not really the upper left corner of the CorelDRAW workspace allows you to display document color information but does a limited job.  Your concept is a good one.

    Have you tried one setting that works for all?  Yes I knoe it's a dumb question.  Wink

    Thanks David for the reply. The settings can not be used for all. I am running a sublimation printer, laser cutter/engraver and a wide format printer.  they all have there own software that I import the files into and each one requires its own settings to work right...that defiantly would make things easier but it just wont work. I only see any color info in tht bottom left of the screen. Is this what you are talking about or is there something else?

    Yes sorry that is the default position. A quick color management preset access button or buttons would be nice.  Click to select the dialog or to select one or more presets.
