Making feedback welcome

Giving feedback is essential to successful collaboration on work and following our motto of ‘everyone gets a red pen’ we give you exactly that to add comments to a proof.

Collaborating

Of course, sometimes it’s easier to agree with what another proofer has said but if you need to add to the conversation, simply reply to the comment. You can even @ mention other reviewers too.

Uncluttered proofing

The work that you’re checking and reviewing is most important on the proofing screen so you’ll see that we hide the comment pane away once you’ve added a comment and that the red pins you’re placing on the page are subtle (have you discovered the reveal of the comment when you hover on the pin yet?). No complicated distractions while you’re proofing.

Finished yet?

When you’re finishing proofing, look to the bottom right of the proof screen and click the green button to say you’re done.

PageProof will display one of these three buttons depending on your proofing role and whether comments have been marked as to-dos.PageProof will display one of these three buttons depending on your proofing role and whether comments have been marked as to-dos.

Nice and easy, just like PageProof.
