Markzware Inc’s FlightCheck is a stand-alone preflight application for macOS to preview, preflight, report, and package desktop publishing files, such as .pdf, .qxp, or .indd. The company has announced FlightCheck 2024 with Adobe Creative Cloud 2024 application support to preflight InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop native file types.
FlightCheck does not require external applications or plug-ins to process documents created in these Adobe CC 2024 versions or many other file formats. This software tool can be used within DTP applications or as a stand-alone app and provides a comprehensive preflight check, which includes data on used fonts, images, colours, and other document elements.
FlightCheck’s benefits include flexibility for specific workflows providing results based on chosen checkpoints; several options to help publishing and print professionals that include inspection, analysis and reporting for both PDF and non-PDF documents for error-free output, saving expenses of material, labour, and time. For example, FlightCheck reduces the risk of costly reprints and avoids the extra effort that a manual check of large documents would require. It also speeds up prepress and print production by eliminating time-consuming steps, and provides peace of mind and assurance for users and their clients because print jobs processed with FlightCheck are validated with a complete quality control check.
