Prior to the 2018.3 release, the Legacy Proofing Viewer is supported. With the 2018.3 release (at the end of the 2018 calendar year), the Legacy Proofing Viewer and all other applications that rely on Flash will be removed and no longer available. 

For static and video proofs, the new Web Proofing Viewer is the default viewer. For interactive proofs, the Desktop Proofing Viewer is the default viewer.

Functionality No Longer Available with the Removal of the Legacy Proofing Viewer

In addition to removing the dependency on Flash, the Web Proofing Viewer and the Desktop Proofing Viewer contain improvements that were not available with the Legacy Proofing Viewer. However, some functionality that was available with the Legacy Proofing Viewer is not available with the new Web Proofing Viewer and Desktop Proofing Viewer. This functionality includes:

  • Interactive proofing in the browser
    Moving forward, interactive proofing will be supported only in the Desktop Proofing Viewer.
  • Ability to review SWF files
  • Desktop Uploader
    This tool will be deprecated with the 18.3 release.
