I am using MacBook Air with El Captain latest version 10.11.5 and I am trying to calibrate my CG2420 using ColorNavigator The problem is, that when Im going through "Create a new target" > "Enter manually" > "Monitor native" and get to the screen with Brightness and White point setting , the button "Next" is inactive/disabled, no matter if I do any changes or not, so I am unable to go any further. I have tried the same with selecting an existing Gamut, i.e. Adobe RGB (1998), but still the same.
Can you suggest me any idea what may be wrong?

Have a look at this

Personally I don't use Macs and have a Spyder for Calibration so I can't give much help but the above looked good.

Thanks for this. My problem is while creating a new target, and I am unable to go any further after setting Brightness and White point, I cannot pass to another screen. This should be a very easy process, as shown i.e. in this film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-ZQKYuds_Q , but I stuck at 9.57, when the guy presses Next - my button is just inactive. This might be due to some config settings maybe, but I still can't get through this..

In your first post you said 'New target>enter manually>Monitor native. In the video to which you linked after he has clicked on 'Enter Manually' he goes to Adobe RGB. As I said I don't know this system but he does say that 'Monitor Native' contains far more colours than the monitor is able to show and I am guessing that as you have posted the query here you are a Photgrapher. So I would suggest trying scrolling down to Adobe RGB and see if that helps.

No, it does not help, no matter whether I choose Monitor Native or any other profile, i.e. Adobe RGB. It is frustrating since I can see many publications where people perform this, and in my case it is unavailable. There must be some reason, but I cannot find.

You might like to post the question over here as the guy in the video, Victor, is the Eizo guru that answers all the questions Smile
