Markzware Updates FlightCheck Workflow

Version 2.0 available for Windows

Big Picture

Markzware has updated its FlightCheck Workflow solution for automating prepress processes to v.2.0 for the Windows PC platform. FlightCheck Workflow is used to batch-process and analyze information about documents, files, and jobs, and now includes a preflight toolkit with several mini-solutions.

These solutions include: batch converting high-res images to low-resolution 72-dpi RGB JPEG images for use on the Web; batch converting TIFF images to CMYK from RGB, indexed or LAB; and batch correction of file extensions if they have been removed from the file name. The new mini-solutions can be downloaded from the company website.

Also new to FlightCheck Workflow is support for Adobe FrameMaker, Microsoft Word, Publisher, and PowerPoint, and the ability to interface with FlightCheck v. 5.52 for Windows.

In addition, Markzware has updated FlightCheck for Adobe InDesign CS and CS2: FlightCheck Studio v. 1.3. Studio works in real time to find and correct design problems while the document is being created.

Markzware has also updated its FlightCheck Studio for QuarkXPress to v. 1.3. It also examines and repairs documents as they are being created. In addition, it displays policy filenames on a palette for easy identification and users are able to output policies as reports. Version 1.3 also has addressed a number of problems from the previous version.

FlightCheck Studio for CS/CS2 and QuarkXPress both run on Mac OS X 10.2 and up. Price: $199.
