Troubleshooting Submissions

If for some reason a paper takes more than 2 minutes generate a preview (which is rare), there is an alternate workflow in which the user can choose a couple options:

  • Cancel, and try again—you will be taken back to select a file
  • Keep trying, I'll be back—you can leave and will be sent an email with status information
