  5. Warn reviewers of unsaved comments - this setting will notify the reviewer when he tries to leave the add comment box without previously saving it.

  6. Live websites: Force proxy for all websites - HTTP (non-secure) sites will always be loaded in the viewer using our proxy servers and ignore this setting. For HTTPS (secure) sites that require authorization, you should disable this setting and ensure your site allows it to be embedded.

  7. Live website: URL rewriting - it automatically changes links in proofed web pages from absolute to relative paths. You can read more about this in FAQ: Why is my live website proof not loading correctly in the viewer?

  8. Show browser plugin prompts - when reviewing live websites, animated GIFs, and rich media files, a prompt is shown to install the Ziflow browser plugin if missing.

  9. Use Vector-based text - to improve the quality of static proofs in the viewer, you can use vector graphics for text. The result is a much-improved level of quality when reviewing proofs, no matter the zoom level. Please note that with this setting enabled, some types of content, for example, static websites, may not be displayed correctly within the Proof Viewer. If your website proof doesn't look right, please try temporarily disabling the setting and try proofing your website again.

  10. Create color separations - enable this option if you want your reviewers to have the possibility to measure color density to make sure that a specific spot has the appropriate density of a specific panton. Read more about color separations in the following article.

  11. Default content for rich media - you can decide on a default content size for rich media proofs. Reviewers will still be able to change it inside the Proof Viewer.

  12. Show original image - this setting forces the Proof Viewer to show the original image (JPG, JPEG, PNG, BMP) instead of proof tiles.

  13. AV - during playback show markup for - decide how long comment markups should be displayed when audio/video proofs are playback.
