Using partial inspection/ selection tools helps users define specific portions of a loaded file to be verified in Graphics Inspection.

1. Crop

To crop the area to be verified during an inspection, click the Crop icon, click and drag the cursor. The selected area is surrounded by a red box, which can be cleared by clicking on the border and selecting Delete or resized by clicking and dragging to adjust its borders. 

You cannot apply multiple crops on the same page but you can apply one crop per page of a multi-page document. 

Auto Crop (Trim Box)

When a PDF file is uploaded, Graphics Inspection checks to see if a PDF trim box exists. If one does, Graphics Inspection automatically draws a crop box around the trim area and only the region within the crop box is inspected. 

If you try to add your own crop box without removing the auto-generated one, Graphics Inspection displays the message: "Please remove the crop box on the document before proceeding." 

To remove the auto-generated crop box, click Clear All on the toolbar or click on its border and select Delete.

2. Overprint

Clicking the Overprint icon displays a simulation of how blending and overprinting appear in color-separated output, which will not be applied to the inspection. Toggling Overprint also re-loads the files. 

The default is toggled on.

3. Spot Layers (Separations)

Clicking the Spot Layers icon toggles on the Side panel, where users can (un)check different spot layers (5) on the loaded Master or Sample to exclude/ include in the inspection.

4. Layers 

Clicking the Layers icon toggles on the Side panel, where users can (un)check different layers (5) on the loaded Master or Sample to exclude/ include in the inspection.
