As the proof owner, you can control whether the original file uploaded to PageProof to create the proof, can be downloaded by proofers or not. This is originally set during the upload of the proof, but can be altered at any stage.
As a proof owner if you need to manually archive the proof during its progress, you can.
To set the download option during the proof set up:
Next to the proof name, toggle the download icon.
PageProof will remember your preference for your next proof.
To change the download option after the proof has been set up:
Open the proof’s info pane either by clicking the info icon on the proof tile, or when you’re viewing the proof.
Click the hamburger menu to manage your proof.
Toggle download proof.
