Proofing in Wrike
All user types (including collaborators) can use Proofing.
Use Proofing to add comments directly to images, videos, PDF, and Microsoft Office files attached to tasks, folders, and projects. A marker is added to the image or document each time you add a comment. You can then click the marker to see the corresponding comment. All comments are also visible in a list on the right-hand side of the screen.
Account owners on Professional, Business, and Enterprise plans can start a 14-day free trial of the Wrike Proof add-on from the account management section.
When you open a file, you see markers that represent Proofing comments. Click a marker to see the corresponding comment in the pop-up window. 1
Open the comment panel: Click Comments 2 in the upper right-hand corner.
Switch between versions: Click Versions 3 in the upper right-hand corner and click a version from the panel on the left.
Open a task, folder, or project where a file is attached: Click its name under a file’s title in the upper left-hand corner. 4
For PDF and Office files: A number of pages appear at the top of the window. Click it and enter a page number to jump to it.
You can rotate an image or the current page of the document you have open in Proofing. To do so, click the Rotate 5 icon in the bottom panel. The image/page is rotated clockwise 90 degrees each time you click the button. Note that this change isn't saved when you exit Proofing or when you switch to another image or document.
When you add a new version of a file, people who are working on this file in Wrike Proof will see a notification that the new file version was added. They can open a new version right away or continue working on the current version.
To compare files (or file versions) click the Compare 6 icon in the upper right-hand corner.
You can select from two color themes for Proofing: dark and light. To switch the theme, open any file, click the three-dot menu in the upper right-hand corner of the workspace, and select Switch to Dark/Light Theme.
