Preview within the Momento software, presents your layout in full-screen mode with both the left and right hand panels of your design visible at the same time – like an open book. This is a quick and easy way to check that your design flows smoothly across multiple pages. Font errors or corruption will not be visible in Software Preview you will need to proof the PDF Proof created after exporting instead.
Quick PDF Proof
In addition to the Software Preview you can also create a Quick Proof PDF at any time by going to File Menu > Export Quick Proof PDF, and view the resulting file in Adobe Acrobat Reader. This creates a low-resolution PDF Proof in a few seconds, rather than having to wait a few minutes for a Master PDF Proof in high resolution. The Master PDF Proof is essential to view for proofing your file before ordering. Note: The PDF Proof includes a Momento watermark on every page.
Viewing in Acrobat Reader
Make sure you are running the lateast version of Acrobat. Changes made in v8 of our software require version 10 or later.
You can view the PDF Proof in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Open the PDF Proof by double clicking the file icon or by opening the Acrobat Reader software and using the Open option in the File Menu. If you do not have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, you will not be able to open the file. Install Acrobat Reader now.
For optimum settings to check whether your file contains any font or text errors, resolution issues or positioning problems we recommend the following settings:
- View > Zoom > Fit Width
- View > Page Display > Two-Up Continuous
- View > Page Display > Show Gaps Between Pages
- View > Page Display > Show Cover Page During Two-Up
If you have Acrobat Pro or Acrobat DC installed, you can get more accurate colour by setting the RGB Profile to Adobe RGB in the Colour Settings page in preferences.
