Markzware, the inventor of preflighting for print, announces the new FlightCheck v6.80. FlightCheck is the solution for total print quality control. Among its several features, FlightCheck 6.80 will preflight and package Adobe InDesign CS5.5 files to include Illustrator, Photoshop, PDF and QuarkXPress 9 for Macintosh. FlightCheck 6.80 is also compatible with the earlier versions of these popular Desktop Publishing (DTP) file types.
According to Joe Stevens, art director, Ball Media, “Ball Media works on projects large and small, including CD & DVD releases, book printing and every manner of print design. Everyday, we rely on preflighting files and FlightCheck to give us the results that allow our jobs to go to our print partners error free, saving time and money. FlightCheck 6.80 should be in the arsenal of every design house that is serious about print.”
The process of preflighting and packaging print-jobs has been an important step for printers and prepress professionals. The earlier in the workflow that printing problems can be flagged and fixed, the easier it is to remedy file issues prior to print production. FlightCheck’s versatility for thoroughly checking all document elements in several file types is one reason why it remains so popular and is the preeminent print quality control and preflighting tool.
Graphic Production Specialist Geof Innis says, “There are a lot of misperceptions about FlightCheck when compared to InDesign’s Preflight panel. FlightCheck goes a lot further and provides a much more robust solution. One of my realizations is that when you use FlightCheck, you are focused on the specific production specs and issues, not distracted by all the other things that ID does.”
Fred Lee, production manager, Countryman Press, shares, “I can say unequivocally that we find FlightCheck indispensable whenever preflighting our files; it is much more thorough and informative than the built-in InDesign preflight.”
FlightCheck 6.80 delivers accurate precision with difficult design jobs as well, as Robert Guy from the marketing company, Gold N Fish, expressed, “I can confidently deliver complex mechanicals with ease thanks to the new FlightCheck 6.80!”
