As a designer, it is quick and easy to create proofs directly from within Adobe Photoshop and send them out to a PageProof workflow. Then, when a to-do list has been returned, bring the comments back into Photoshop with the corresponding pins displayed layered over your artwork file. Firstly make sure you have installed the PageProof Adobe add-on, then follow these simple instructions:

To bring comments back into Adobe Illustrator

Step 1

Open your artwork file. 

Step 2

Click inbox to see proofs that have been returned with a to-do list. Proofs that have been returned are indicated in green and will display a comments icon.

The PageProof panel in Adobe Illustrator

Click the comments icon and the list of to-dos will be revealed on the right-hand side of the panel.

Step 3

Select a comment to reveal the pin position on the artwork.

Using the PageProof panel to show the comments on a proof


• Double click the comment text to select copy
• Click the download icon in the comment to download the comment’s attachment

Step 4

When the change has been made to the artwork, tick done against the comment.


• The comment will now appear in the done list of the comments. Use the drop down to move between all comments, to-dos only and dones.

Step 5

When all the changes have been made to the artwork, click the create new version icon to upload a new version of the proof.
