Post Export

4. Open In

Selecting the Open In Checkbox allows you to select which application will handle the exported GIF file.

5. System Default Application

This is the default application your macOS system uses to handle GIF files. On macOS systems this is typically Apple’s Preview application.

6. Specific Application Path

Selecting this radio button will enable the selection area.

7. Selection area

Click in the selection area to bring up a Standard macOS Finder window allowing you to navigate to the application you wish to use to handle the exported GIF file. If you wish to edit the GIF, some likely apps you would use on Mac would be Adobe Photoshop or Affinity Photo.

8. Suppress dialogs when possible

When this box is selected warning and error dialogs in applications the GIF is sent too are suppressed if possible.
When opening files in other applications, many times they pop up alert dialogs that require you to click on something to continue. This can cause unwanted interference or halt in a workflow. The downside of suppressing these dialogs is you may not know if problems were detected in the file.

9. Show in Finder

If this box is checked, when you perform the Export as GIF action, once it is completed, your file will be revealed in a Standard macOS Finder Window. Unless you need to interact with the file immediately after export in the macOS Finder, this box should be left unchecked. Leaving the box unchecked will also speed up the export process as a Finder Window will not need to be called and displayed.

10. Close Document

If this box is checked, your file will be closed in FlightCheck after the GIF file has been exported. By Default this box is left unchecked and your file remains open in FlightCheck until you manually decide to close the file.

11. Cancel Button

Clicking the Cancel button will cancel the GIF export action and close the GIF Export Pane. This will take you back to the main File View Window in FlightCheck.

12. Export Button

Clicking the Export button will export a GIF of the currently active file using the settings you have selected in this Export GIF Panel. When you click on Export this will also bring up a Standard macOS Finder window asking you where you would like to Save your GIF file.
