Enfocus Updates PitStop and Instant PDF Products
Instant PDF is now compatible with Adobe CS3.
Enfocus has introduced PitStop Server 4.5 and Instant PDF 4.1, providing improvements to each product.
PitStop Server 4.5 now offers a re-organized user interface that features easy access to hot-folder setups, files in process, and a complete history log. Altering a folder’s priority or disabling it requires only a single mouse click. Processed file histories, including per-job detailed reports, can be filtered and exported in different formats for statistical analysis.
In addition, the server-based processing function allows the program to run as a service on Windows and a login item for Mac OS X 10.4. This function enables users to begin processing jobs without launching the PitStop Server 4.5 user interface. The new PitStop Server WatchDog, a background application, keeps the workflow active at all times the program is running. Version 4.5 also offers multiple-processor support and Windows Vista compatibility.
The latest version of Instant PDF is now Adobe CS3 compatible; the "Save as Certified PDF" option is available for In-Design CS3 and Illustrator CS3. Without leaving the design applications, users can create, preflight, and modify PDF files where necessary with Instant PDF 4.1. The program also offers an improved e-mail Server Account Settings to provide a user name and password when connecting to a mail server for sending e-mails. Instant PDF 4.1 is compatible with the latest OS X 10.5 version.
