Measurement data from GMG ColorProof can be automatically or manually imported into GMG ProofControl.
Automatic import of measurement jobs and data
With our automatic import option, every job with a control strip that finished processing in GMG ColorProof is automatically handed over to GMG ProofControl so that the strip can be measured with an i1 or, if already measured with an integrated measuring device, selected in the History list to print a label or report for it.
How to import measurement jobs from GMG ColorProof via a Hotfolder
1. On the toolbar of the GMG ProofControl main window, click Options.
2. In the tree view pane on the left, click ColorProof Connection.
3. Select the option Use Automated Measurement Import. Browse your folders and select the folder where the measurement jobs are saved (default path: Users\Public\GMG\ColorProof\ProofControl Output).
4. Optional: Enable the cleanup functionality Delete Unrecognized Files to delete all unrecognized files.
5. Confirm with OK.
The selected folder is scanned every 10 seconds for new data. All incoming data is automatically listed in the Jobs and History list in the main program view.
Manual Measurement Import (PMV Files)
If you are using an integrated measuring device and want to manually import measurement data, you need to activate the manual import option (Options > Measuring Device > Use Manual Import of PMV Files) and define the folder which ColorProof uses for storing the measurement data (default path: Users\Public\GMG\ColorProof\ProofControl Output). As soon as you activated the manual import option, a Load button is shown on the status display of the measuring device.
