Reviewing a Static Proof in the Web Proofing Viewer

The highlighted information on this page refers to functionality not yet generally available. It is available only in the Preview Sandbox environment.

NOTE The functionality described in this section represents the current functionality available in the Web Proofing Viewer. More functionality is coming soon. For more information, see "Understanding Differences between the Various Proofing Viewers."

This section describes how to review static proofs that have been created either within Workfront or Workfront Proof.

For information about how to create a static proof within Workfront, see "Generating a Proof on a Document" in the article "Creating Proofs in Workfront." For information about how to create a static proof within Workfront Proof, see "Generating a Proof on a Document" in the article "Creating Proofs in Workfront Proof."

Workfront and Workfront Proof currently support the following proofing viewers for proofing static content:

  • Web Proofing Viewer (recommended): Runs in the browser. Can proof video and static files.
  • Desktop Proofing Viewer (recommended): Runs as an application on your workstation. Can proof interactive content, as well as video and static files.
    The options available in these two viewers for reviewing static proofs are described in the sections below.
  • Legacy Proofing Viewer: Runs in the browser. Can proof video and static files.
    For more information, see "Reviewing Proofs in the Legacy Proofing Viewer."

For information about using the Web Proofing Viewer for video proofs, see "Reviewing a Video Proof in the Web Proofing Viewer."

For general information that relates to proofing both static and video proofs in the Web Proofing Viewer, see "Reviewing Proofs in the Web Proofing Viewer."

If you cannot use the Web Proofing Viewer as described in this section, consult your system administrator. The system administrator can enable or disable access to the Web Proofing Viewer, as described in "Web Proofing Viewer" in "General Proof Settings." 

Enabling and Disabling the Web Proofing Viewer

Depending on settings configured by your system administrator, you might see the Web Proofing Viewer when viewing static proofs, or you might see the Legacy Proofing Viewer. If your system is configured to use the Web Proofing Viewer and you need to switch to the Legacy Proofing Viewer, you can do so by disabling the Web Proofing Viewer. 

Enabling the Web Proofing Viewer

To enable the Web Proofing Viewer:

  1. Click Open new proofing viewer near the lower-left corner of the Legacy Proofing Viewer.
    The system remembers this setting until you clear your browser cache.

Disabling the Web Proofing Viewer

Depending on your organization's configuration, you may be able to disable the Web Proofing Viewer and use the Legacy Proofing Viewer: I'm not seeing this; but Andrzej says this it's there for customers who need it.

  1. Click the Legacy viewer icon near the lower-left corner of the Web Proofing Viewer.

Changing the View

You can view a static proof that contains multiple pages in a single view, in a continues view, or in a magazine view.

  1. Locate the various view options in the upper-left section of the Web Proofing Viewer.

Using Thumbnails

The thumbails panel displays on the left side of the Proofing Viewer. You can use the thumbnails area to navigate throughout the proof. Thumbnails are especially useful when a proof contains multiple pages.

Hiding and Displaying the Thumbnails Panel

The thumbnails panel displays by default. You can hide the thumbnails panel or adjust the size of the thumbnails panel.

Hiding the Thumbnails Panel

  1. Click the Thumbnail icon in the upper-left corner of the Proofing Viewer.

  2. Drag the edge to resize the panel.

Zooming and Panning in the Thumbnail View

The zoom area in the thumbnails panel displays the area of the proof you are currently viewing. You can adjust the zoom within the thumbnail area or you can pan the area to view a different part of the proof.

You can also zoom and pan in the main area of the proof, as described in "Zooming and Panning a Proof."

To zoom and pan in the thumbnail view:

  1. Locate the current zoom area in the thumbnails panel.
    The zoom area displays as a blue frame around the edges of the thumbnail

  2. To adjust the size of the zoom area, drag the lower-right corner of the zoom area until it is the desired size.
  3. To move the zoom area to another part of the proof, drag the zoom area until it covers the part of the proof you want to view.

Searching Text within a Proof

You can search text within any proof that is created from any of the following file types:

  • PDF
  • Office
  • PSD
  • Illustrator

To search text within proof:

  1. Click the Search document icon above the proof.

  2. In the search field that appears, type the text you want to search for.
    The Proofing Viewer highlights the text you type within the proof.
  3. Click the Up Arrow and Down Arrow icons to the right of the Search documents box to cycle through the search results.

For information about searching the comment list, see "Searching the Comment List" in "Managing Comments in the Web Proofing Viewer."

Measuring an Area Within a Proof

You can measure an area within a proof.

  1. Click the Measure an area icon at the top of the Proofing Viewer.

    The Proofing Viewer remembers your color and opacity selections on all proofs you open until you clear your browser cache. 
  3. (Optional) Select a different Unit of Measurement.
  4. Drag the measurement window to the area of the proof you need to measure.

  6. (Optional) If you need the measurement area to be an exact size, type Selection size values.

Rotating a Proof

You can rotate the proof within the Proofing Viewer. When you rotate a proof that contains multiple pages, all pages are rotated simultaneously.

  1. Click the Rotate icon at the bottom of the Proofing Viewer.
    proof_viewer_static_rotate.png
    The proof is rotated 90 degrees each time you click the Rotate icon.

Zooming and Panning a Proof

You can adjust the zoom percentage when viewing the proof. When viewing a proof at a larger zoom percentage, the Pan option allows you to use the cursor to navigate to different areas of the proof.

Alternatively, you can use the thumbnail area to zoom and pan within the proof, as described in "Zooming and Panning in the Thumbnail View."

  1. Do any of the following to adjust the zoom percentage of the proof:
    • Click the Zoom icon, then either click on the proof to view the proof at a higher zoom level, or drag across an area of the proof to view only that area.
      change_zoom_percentage.png
    • Click the current zoom percentage, the click a new zoom percentage or click Fit to width, Fit to height, or Fit to page.
