If a proof has more than one version, you will be able to compare versions. If the proof dimensions are the same size, smart compare will be available – this will analyze and calculate the differences for you and highlight these in green.
How to smart compare proof versions
Click the compare icon.
Choose the proof versions you’d like to compare, then click smart compare.
There are several helpful tools to choose from in smart compare mode:
Version dropdown to change the version that is displaying on top
Left/right arrows for page navigation
Quick flick icon to change between versions quickly (shortcut key up/down arrows)
Slider icon to slide across the versions to reveal differences
Eye icon to show/hide the highlighted differences
Cog icon to open the advanced settings and control how the highlighted differences will display and behave.
Use the up and down arrow shortcut keys to use ‘quick flick’.
You can change the color of the slider by clicking the colored dot to the left of the slider icon.
In advanced settings, you can control:
fog – the opacity of the underlying proof image
strobe – a flashing effect for the highlighted differences
jiggle – a side-to-side motion effect for the highlighted differences
You can also set the highlighted differences color, even choose a custom color. Tip: Selecting white as a color will go into a high contrast mode with white showing against black for the differences.
