How It Works

Prior to Prepress 6, only page rejection comments were readily available in the Prepress client. If the page approver created remarks in the Portal or StreamProof interface, you had to go looking for them. With Portal and Prepress 6, those remarks are now easily available within your Prepress client.

Recapping quickly, There’s a few places you can check for remarks or annotations that have been added to your job. In the Prepress client, look at the job list. Is there a globe with an envelope on it in the status column? Click it, because it directs you to the Job Messages log.

In the Results tab, when remarks or annotations have been added to any page, you’ll see an icon next to the page or flat. A thumbs up means the page was approved but there are remarks. A thumbs down means a page has been rejected.

You may click the icon, or you may Preview the page. In either case, clicking the icon allows you to see the remark.

When you’re in Preview, to see an overview of all remarks or annotations, open the Remarks window.
