Report Options Breakdown

  • Selecting difference levels to include in the report

In the Report Options window, check the box next to the level(s) to be included. If none of the levels are selected, all of them will be included in the report.

  • Create annotated artwork file

Annotations with the inspection results for the selected levels are automatically added to the file. The annotations that you see in the report are notes that are added to each difference. You can view them by clicking the red-numbered tag associated with each difference. If you have PDF-editing software, you can even edit the annotations by double-clicking the numbered tag.
