Changing Interactive Proof Resolution in the Proofing Viewer

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

When you are reviewing an interactive proof, you can preview how the content looks and responds on various devices and resolutions.

Device and Resolution Views in Desktop Proofing Viewer vs. Web Proofing Viewer

Your Workfront administrator has configured your system so that you proof interactive content either in the Desktop Proofing Viewer or, as bundled content in a ZIP file, in the Web Proofing Viewer:

  • In the Desktop Proofing Viewer, you can view how content appears and responds both in various resolutions and on various devices. When a reviewer specifies a certain device, the Desktop Proofing Viewer emulates the content as it would appear on that device, with the user interface specifications for the device. For example, a red button on one brand of smart phone may be blue on a different brand.
  • In the Web Proofing Viewer, you can view interactive content as it appears in the resolutions for the various devices. But the Web Proofing Viewer does not emulate the content using interface specifications on these devices, such as button color.
    NOTE Your Workfront administrator can configure custom devices for users in your organization, as described in "Configuring Custom Devices for Interactive Proofs" in the article "Enabling and Disabling Proofing for Users.

For more information, see "Reviewing Interactive Content in Web Proofing Viewer vs. Desktop Proofing Viewer" in the article "Reviewing and Managing Interactive Proofs."
