Enfocus, one of the leader in PDF quality control, advanced PDF editing and workflow automation for the graphic arts industry announces the upcoming April 2019 release of PitStop Pro 2019, PitStop Server 2019 and PitStop Library SDK 2019, the latest versions of their award-winning PDF Preflight, Editing and Correction applications.
This upcoming release contains new and improved functionality that has been developed as a result of extensive ongoing customer feedback. In particular, this release provides new tools to handle complex files that can cause bottlenecks in a workflow. It also provides a brand-new way of manually selecting objects for editing that will greatly increase the efficiency of prepress operators while also giving them unique information about the structure of the PDF.
A specific preflight profile for digital printers has been included that optimizes and reports the amount of ‘clicks’ each page will generate. This profile, which has been on beta test for around six months, automatically handles objects that ‘look’ black and ensures they only create one ‘click’. Customers testing the profile reported to have saved time in prepress while reducing the cost of digital printing.
Andrew Bailes-Collins, senior product manager at Enfocus responsible for the PitStop product family, said, “This new release contains some great new functionality that we have been working towards over the last few years. It’s great to finally be able to release it to customers so they can benefit from it. Initial feedback from customers that have tested the new version has been tremendous and we’ve been able to refine some of the features with their real-world feedback.”
