We'd like to change the term "Softproof" to something like "Preview". Is this possible?

We understand that "softproof" is a standard print term, and it's heavily used throughout the entire software package and programming code.

Specifically, we'd like to just change the main page header on the actual softproof page to something like "Preview" just so mainstream visitors fully (& quickly) understand that they are looking at a preview of their product.

Is this possible?

Yes it's possible to change it. Click on Settings, and in the Settings menu to the left, go under General->Languages, pick the language you want to edit, and you can change almost all the terms used by the program. Softproof is amongst them.

I recommend you highlight the whole text, copy-paste it in a text editor so you can perform search and replaces, and then copy-paste it back in PSMW. This makes it easier that scrolling and manually searching for the words to change.

Hope that helps!
