Configuring Proofing Viewer Settings

You can configure the following settings for the Web Proofing Viewer:

  • Whether comment markups and pins display on proofs.
  • Whether the markup tools display across the top of the Proofing Viewer or in a drop-down menu.
  • Whether the Desktop Proofing Viewer is the default viewer for all proofs you open.
  • In the Desktop Proofing Viewer, how you want links within website content to open.

Your settings remain in effect for all proofs you open.

To configure Proofing Viewer settings:

  1. Open the Web Proofing Viewer or the Desktop Proofing Viewer:
    • If you proof within Workfront, go to a document list containing a proof you want to view, hover over the document, then click Open proof.
    • If you use Workfront Proof, click the down arrow button next to Views in the side bar, click All Items in the menu that appears, click the name of a proof, then click Go to proof.
    • If you want to configure the settings for the Desktop Proofing Viewer, "Opening Proofs in the Desktop Proofing Viewer."
  2. If the left toolbar is not showing, click the Menu icon, located in the upper-left corner of the Web Proofing Viewer.

  3. In the left toolbar, click the Settings icon.

  4. Configure any of the following Settings that display.
    Note that the settings available may vary depending on the type of proof you have open.
    • Show markups (always available in the Web Proofing Viewer and the Desktop Proofing Viewer): These are the comment marks that reviewers add to proofs when they use the markup tools. If you disable them, you can still see them when you click a comment in the comment list. 
    • Show pins  (always available in the Web Proofing Viewer and the Desktop Proofing Viewer): These are the numbered pins that reviewers add to proofs when they use the markup tools. They indicate where and in what order the reviewer added comments. If you disable them, you can still see them when you click a comment in the comment list.
    • Use expanded markup tools (always available in the Web Proofing Viewer and the Desktop Proofing Viewer): By default, the markup tool options display across the top of the proofing viewer. You can configure them to display in a vertical menu that opens only when you click it.
    • Use desktop app as default (available in the Web Proofing Viewer; also available in the Desktop Proofing Viewer if you have opened a non-interactive proof): By default, static and video proofs open in the Web Proofing Viewer in your web browser, and interactive proofs open in the Desktop Proofing Viewer (interactive proofs cannot be opened in the Web Proofing Viewer).
      This setting lets you configure the Desktop Proofing Viewer as the default viewer for all types of proofs (static and video, as well as interactive). For more information about this setting, see "Desktop Proofing Viewer in the article, "General Proof Settings".
    • When clicking hyperlinks in a proof (available only in the Desktop Proofing Viewer): Select an option to specify what happens in the Desktop Proofing Viewer when you click link that is set to open in a new browser tab or window:
      • Open within the Proofing Viewer: Links always open within the Desktop Proofing Viewer and you can proof the linked content.
      • Open in the browser: Links always open within the browser. You are not able to proof the linked content.
      • Ask me every time (default option): You are prompted each time whether you want to open the link within the Desktop Proofing Viewer or in the browser. If you open the link within the Desktop Proofing Viewer, you can proof the linked content. If you open the link in the browser, you are not able to proof the linked content.
