Unique to Aproove Work Management, the Multi-Function Markup Tool enables users to markup a proof in different ways using just one smart tool.
Aproove WM created a single markup tool that has the intelligence to detect what content you are reviewing, which enables users to have a more efficient and user-friendly proofing experience.
Having a single multi-function markup tool results in minimal end-user training, which makes for a much smoother onboarding and user experience.
Having multiple tools in a pallet adds more complexity to the user experience and can become frustrating and confusing when you have to keep switching between tools.
One tool with Four functions:
We like to keep the user interface simple, which is why we invented the multi-function markup tool; however, some production users may need to do more, which is why we have the Production and Packaging tools.
With the simple click of a button, you can enable the Production & Packaging tools for your more advanced users. This can be done on a per-user basis, meaning you do not have to confuse your standard reviewers with more advanced tools appearing in the review interface.
Let's take a look at the Production and Packaging Tools below:
The Color Densitometer Tool (Color Picker) allows you to move around the page obtaining color breakdowns on any object you hover above. You can then add a color breakdown into a note, which is great for giving color correction instructions.
Aproove WM automatically detects all the color channels inside a proof and displays them in a drop-down list. The user can select any channel, and only that color channel will be displayed. Aproove will even detect special spot colors such as Pantone. Separations can also get shown in version comparison mode.
The measurement tool allows you to measure on screen the distance between two points within a proof; this is a precise measurement and will display metric results of the distance, XY position, area, and angle (if applicable).
Drag a box over the barcode or postal code you wish to check. If the barcode is OK, the box will turn GREEN and inform you that the barcode was successfully read, it will also display the barcode type and number; if it is unreadable, the box will turn RED and inform you it was not readable.

Proofs such as mailers and packaging files get created the way they will get folded after print, which means some content might be displayed upside down or on the side when you are reviewing the proof.
Reviewers have access to the rotation tool, which enables them to rotate the proofs making it easier to read and markup during the review process.
