Markzware Updates FlightCheck

Version 5.0.4 offers speed improvements By Dave Nagel
Markzware has released FlightCheck Professional 5.0.4, an update to the company's preflighting suite. The Markzware has also released FlightCheck Designer 5.0.4 (formerly known as FlightCheck Collect!). Both are available now for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.

FlightCheck Professional is Markzware's flagship preflighting application. It uses a drag and drop interface to scan files using hundreds of available tests to determine whether there are any problems present in a document that will cause output problems. (File types supported include Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, PDF, PageMaker, Multi-Ad Creator, Illustrator, Photoshop, FreeHand, CorelDRAW and others.) FlightCheck Designer is a simplified version of FlightCheck Professional. It provides less extensive quality control, but, according to Markzware, covers "the essentials." It inspects documents for colors, fonts and images, then collects the components of the job, compresses them and includes the Ground Control settings for transmission to the service bureau. Both new versions include speed optimizations and a new PDF FlightPlans feature.

FlightCheck Professional 5.0.4 and FlightCheck Designer 5.0.4 are available now for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. FlightCheck Professional runs $499 for the full version. FlightCheck Designer runs $199 for the full version. For more information, visit
