Copying Proofs in Workfront Proof

IMPORTANT

This article refers to functionality in the standalone product Workfront Proof. For information on proofing inside Adobe Workfront, see Proofing.

Reviewers with edit rights on a proof can create a copy of the proof, either as a new version of the existing proof or as a new proof. (For more information, see . For information about edit rights, see Proof Permissions Profiles in Workfront Proof.)

The reviewers that were on the original proof automatically appear in the Share section of the Copy proof page, but they can be removed. If a reviewer is deleted, their comments will remain.

NOTE

 A copy of a proof counts towards your monthly proof limit. However, if the copy is created as a new version, it is included in the version set count. For more information, see Managing Proof Versions in Workfront Proof.
