WYCIWYG (What You Change is What You Get), is the online proofing module in PageMajik. You can access the interface by clicking on the "wyciwyg" action from either the "Chapters" screen or the "Tab View".  

WYCIWYG opens the typeset file in two panels, the PDF on the left side and XHTML on the right side. 

The two files are synchronized, and clicking on a paragraph on the left pane will bring up the corresponding paragraph in the editable version on the right. 

You can review the PDF as you normally would, and if you find the need to make a change, clicking on the paragraph in the PDF will take you to the corresponding place on the right side where you can make the changes.  All changes will be tracked by default.

Note: It is important to periodically "save" your changes as you are working in a browser.

The WYCIWYG toolbar has all the usual editing icons. Mouseover on any icon to see the tooltip describing the function.

It is important to know that autocorrect options are enabled by default. The following screens display the list of autocorrect options available. This feature can be disabled if not required.

Another interesting feature within wyciwyg is the ability to include instructions for composition/layout. Currently, it is possible to include instructions for updating running heads while reviewing page proofs. Click on the icon to the right of the commenting tool to bring up the Instructions box.  

  1. All textual changes incorporated during a WYCIWYG review are automatically incorporated in the InDesign application file on triggering the "Generate Revises" action. Any textual change appears as a "tracked" change in InDesign, and comments are included as InDesign Notes, which will then be addressed by an InDesign layout artist within the InDesign application. 

  2. The left pane of the WYCIWYG interface, which displays the PDF, allows commenting and markups too. So for example, if you need to mark changes to an image, this can be added as PDF markup. These markups will then be actioned separately in the native application file.

  3. To the left of the "Save" and "Exit" buttons on the right top corner of the WYCIWYG interface is a "Finish" button. This button should be used whenever it is necessary to do all of the following:

  4. - Confirm completion of WYCIWYG review

  5. - Move workflow stage to the next logical stage

  6. - Save and update version, and exit the WCYIWYG interface 

  7. The "move" operation can only be performed by users who have access to the current stage in the workflow.
