After a text inspection is run, the Inspection Panel appears. Differences between the Master and Sample files can be viewed and reviewed with the ability to assign levels and comments to each difference.
1. Navigating differences
Click the Previous or Next arrows to navigate between differences, each of which will be highlighted in both panels once selected.
2. Zoom levels
For maximizing user experience during navigating through the differences, zoom levels were introduced. These zoom levels will determine how the tool is zooming in when reviewing the differences one-by-one.
The items are not zoomed in at all, the whole page is visible with the difference flashing, as such providing an overview of the entire inspected page. This zoom level is optimal for reviewing in an overall encompassing manner.
Items are zoomed in slightly, allowing a good overview of the relative position and the surroundings within the inspected page/area.
Items are zoomed-in moderately, still allowing an overview of the relative position and the surroundings within the inspected page/area.
Items are zoomed-in almost entirely, but allowing some overview of the surrounding area to a smaller extent, compared to Medium zoom level. The relative position is not clearly visible, only immediate surrounding area.
The difference is zoomed in completely, fitting the screen, without showing the surrounding area. This zoom level is optimal for reviewing small differences, without regard to the position of the difference compared to the inspected area.
Note: Medium/Large are the recommended zoom levels for optimizing user experience - having an overview of the difference, as well as the relative position within the inspected page/area.
3. Assigning levels
Once a difference is picked, click on the Level drop-down list to access and select from the pre-defined levels.
4. Assigning comments
Once a difference is picked, click on the Comment drop-down list to access and select from the pre-defined comments. To create a custom comment, simply type it in the text box.
5. Navigating between pages
Click the Previous Page or Next Page arrow when applicable to navigate between pages in the Master or Report panels.
6. Ignoring/skipping differences
If you want to skip multiple occurrences of the same difference, navigate to the first occurrence of the difference, and click Ignore/Skip All.
Text Inspection automatically sets the level to "Ignore" and comment to "Reviewed" for all occurrences. As you navigate through the differences, Text Inspection skips over these duplicates.
7. Resync differences
Resync removes undesired differences from inspection results. It removes a difference from the Difference List if there is an identical match between the Master and Sample.
Note: You cannot undo it and will need to rerun the inspection to restore the results.
To resync, a difference, navigate to an undesired difference, click Select Text on the Master toolbar, and select the text in the Master panel.
Click Select Text on the Report toolbar and select the text there. Hit Resync. If the selected text is identical in the Master and Report panels, Text Inspection removes the difference from the Difference List and configures the numbering accordingly.
If the selection is not identical, Text Inspection does not remove it, but classifies it as a Change-type difference, regardless of its original classification.
Note: Resync does not apply to Font-type differences.
8. Accessing the Difference List
Click on the Difference List icon to maximize and view all differences at once.
The navigation functionalities are ported over to the Difference List. Any changes made in the Difference List will automatically carry over to the Inspection panel once closed.
Difference types are displayed to the left of the differences, as they appear in the Master and Sample panels.
Grouping duplicates was also introduced, which allows users to set up groups based on difference type, as such maximizing efficiency in reviewing changes that are similar to each other. These items can be then grouped by the user and as such can be treated in the same way.
Levels and Comments can be assigned by clicking on the applicable drop-down list. Click the Previous or Next arrows to navigate between differences, each of which will display in the Inspection Panel. In order to navigate more easily amongst the items in the list, it is also possible to use the scroll, or the keyboard arrows. The Inspection Panel will provide an overview of the difference in both the Master and the Sample files.
Use Resync if any undesired difference is selected in the List. It will either be removed in case it's identical in both panels or reclassified as a Change-type difference if not.
Note: Hold Ctrl and/or Shift key to select multiple differences at once and assign the same level/comment.
9. Change Grid
The Change Grid appears below the Report panel and it displays character changes (highlighted in yellow) for the difference that is currently selected.
Hover over a specific character to see its Unicode value. Navigating through the inspection results will automatically refresh the Change Grid with new differences.
Grouping provides a possibility to group all similar differences, as such making proofing more efficient for the user. This functionality aims at increasing user experience with faster inspection analysis. Clicking this icon will remove identical differences from the list, as such, they do not need to be analyzed individually.
Filtering was introduced on the primary screen for viewing differences in an overall way as well - as such not overwhelming the user, but rather letting them focus on a specific type of difference if so required.
All differences are shown until they are specifically filtered. Clicking the Filtering icon will provide the list of possible items, the different types of filters that can be implemented are visible below:
Note: Irrelevant items are greyed out in the selection, to make the filtering easier for the user.
12. Show/Hide differences
Clicking Show differences displays thin, faint red boxes around all the differences found while keeping the selected difference in bold. To disable this view, click on the Hide differences button.
When using two monitors, you can pop out the tab as such maximizing user experience using a secondary screen.
