Markzware offers essential update to FlightCheck

March 29, 2005


Markzware has announced the immediate availability of FlightCheck Professional and FlightCheck Designer version 5.52. This update is compatible with both Macintosh OS X, and Windows 98 and newer.

FlightCheck Professional, a prepress application for print shops and publishers that sets the standard for digital file quality control (preflighting), supports a wide variety of native application files from popular authoring software vendors like Adobe, Microsoft and Quark. As well, accredited standard preflighting specifications such as PDF/X1, PDF/X1a and PDF/X3 are 'built-in' to the application.

"We have had a tremendous response to the 5.5 versions of FlightCheck and now this free update adds even more capabilities," says Patrick Marchese, President/CEO of Markzware. "These new features will help all our FlightCheck customers streamline their workflows. It is faster on both the Macintosh and Windows platforms and now includes a command-line interface for Windows users."

The new features and functionality in FlightCheck Professional and Designer are:

  • Full preflight support for PDF version 1.5
  • Optimized performance and faster processing.
  • More robust OPI support, including Unix file paths
  • User-definable recursive and absolute path searching
  • Command-line interface for Windows version.
  • "Fill of None" rule has been implemented
  • Support for 16-bit TIFF images (Ground Control added)
  • Complete detection of application-generated clipping paths
  • Automatic FlightPlan and Ground Control switching

Both FlightCheck Professional and Designer v5.52 are available free of charge to registered users of FlightCheck v5.5.
