We bring unto you the much-awaited Winter Release '22 with a lot of exciting features to enrich and deliver a powerful user experience. The platform is better, faster and cleaner than ever.

A big big thank you to all our customers for their continuous feedback!

We are hereby bringing to you, first and foremost, a major product upgrade - Compact Artwork Proofing Renderer. You wanted flexibility and transparency? You got it. You wanted a collaborative,  more intuitive UX? You got it. We have built for you a better, faster, cleaner, renderer design to enrich your experience. 

The Artwork Proofing Renderer is a collaborative workspace where the uploaded artworks from the graphic designer can be reviewed by multiple teams as per your organization workflow using proofing tools, checklists, and annotations in the comments module. 


What’s New?

The redesigned Renderer has a Proofing Toolbar on the top of the workspace which includes -- the Font Finder, Color Extractor, Measurement & Scale, Spellchecker, Layers and Artwork Version Comparison. The users can view the standard checklists, reference files folder as well as download the artwork from the toolbar itself. The Artwork can now be viewed on a bigger, expanded workspace with a compact design accompanied with intuitive icons for proofing and collaboration. 



NOW, are you as excited as we are? We hope you are. These are extensive and comprehensive upgrades that will change the game. The look and feel of the new version is going to be such a powerful experience for the end-user. 

Let’s dive into the highly coveted amendments to the comments module, pronto.

The Comments Module:

In addition to a whole new renderer, we have revised the comments module plus added a whole lot of features and functions to support customer needs. The following features have been included in the upcoming update:

  1. Tagging a User in the Comments section: On typing “@” in the comments, a user will be able to tag other members and will also be provided with a dropdown (list of users) to make a selection. This feature will bring transparency and accountability to your processes
  2. Rich Text Editor: Users will be able to format the text into ‘Bold, Italic, Underline & Bullet Form’ while entering or editing the comment. You can lay emphasis on keywords and specifications in addition to pinpointing the focus area using the “Annotate” tool. 
  3. Editing the comments after posting: Users can now edit their past comments on an Artwork, while its Review Task is still incomplete
  4. Mention URLs or Hyperlink in the Comments: Users can add URLs in the comment which would be highlighted as a hyperlink and opened in a new tab
  5. Threads in Comments:  One of the most exciting additions to the Comments module is Threads. Users can reply to a standalone comment and continue the conversation in the form of a mail thread. They would be equipped with a ‘Reply’ button to affect this dialogue
  6. Highlight Relevant Comments: When a user is tagged in a thread, the comments concerning that user will be highlighted for a better experience
