Exporting comments to PDF

    Summary: If your review and approval process includes exporting records of proofs for historical or auditing purposes, Ziflow supports the PDF export of static proofs along with rich media proofing projects (audio, video, live website and rich media banner/HTML5 assets). The PDF export will include full comments, markups and decisions made. 

    Available for: Any Ziflow user with “view” rights on the proof.

    Where is the feature setup? This feature is enabled by default. An account admin can choose to hide this option within the proof viewer, by going to "Manage account" - "Proof Settings" - "Proof viewer". However, the icon will still appear on the proof summary page. 

    How does it work

    Downloading the comments to PDF can be done in 2 places:

    1. From the Proof Summary page: Simply click on the "Export comments to PDF" icon as shown in the screenshot below:
    2. Inside the proof viewer: Click on the “Export comments to PDF ” icon located in the blue sidebar menu on the left:
