Markzware Unveils Upgrade To FlightCheck Professional

Free update available for both FlightCheck Professional and FlightCheck Designer (July 19, 2005)

Markzware, the leading developer of quality control for digital files used in the global graphics arts and printing industries, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a feature-rich update to FlightCheck. This free update is available for both FlightCheck Professional and FlightCheck Designer for Macintosh and Windows platforms.

The patented, pre-eminent quality control program has been saving users millions of dollars since it's inception to the market in 1995. The popularity of PDF standards and multiple shorter-run digital print jobs have contributed to the increased importance of properly prepared files.

FlightCheck users have realized increased profitability by having a quality control check at the beginning, middle and end of the print production process. The application includes checks for a plethora of layout applications and digital files of many types including PDF, with the ability to check over 250 various items.

This release of FlightCheck 5.6 now expands and improves the solution in several areas. In addition to compatibility upgrades for Macintosh OS X Tiger and QuarkXPress 6.5, FlightCheck's new enhancements are:

- Brand new Ground Control for detecting embedded fonts in native files
- Improved accuracy for reading Illustrator CS EPS files
- Improved support for fonts activated through Extensis Suitcase
- Detection of Pantone colorized text for both InDesign and QuarkXPress
- Detection of boxes with a 'Content Of None' in QuarkXPress

In addition, there have been over 25 customer reported problems that have been fixed and optimized in this free update.

FlightCheck Professional v.5.6 is available free of charge, to registered users of FlightCheck Professional v5.5. The upgrade from v4.5-5.6 is $199. The MSRP for Markzware FlightCheck Professional is $499. You can also visit
