How Do I Add other files to a Project?

This article is intended to guide you through adding other files to a Project using the GoProof Adobe CC Add-on. This enables you to send multiple files in a single Project.

In order to send a proof using the GoProof Add-On, you will need to be using an Adobe CC Supported product, such as InDesignPhotoshopIllustrator and Premiere and have already installed the GoProof Add-On.

If you have not already installed the GoProof Add-On, please see How do I install the GoProof Extension for instructions on how to install it.

1. From the GoProof Add-On, select the Client and Project you wish to send the files to, from the dropdown menus.
