What can a proofreader do?

'Proofreader' is one of the four roles that you can be given in a project.

When you are invited onto a project, you will by default be given the role of Proofreader on that project. This doesn't mean that you are technically a proofreader, only that you are being given the medium level of access to the project.

A proofreader can do all the tasks required to proofread a project. That is, they can view proofs, mark them up, collaborate by raising and responding to queries, collate comments onto a master proof and proofread against previous versions.

The table below shows a full list of all the roles and what each can do. A green box means that someone with that role can carry out that task.

Note that Publisher roles over-ride Project roles. Thus, a Publisher Owner can view all projects in their company even if they are assigned Proofreader or Author role (or no role) on some of them.
