XChange Announce Availability of Instant PDF 3.6With Adobe InDesign CS2 compatibility (February 10, 2006)
XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the availability of Instant PDF version 3.6, adding compatibility with Adobe InDesign CS2. Enfocus Instant PDF 3 removes the uncertainty and technical complexity from the PDF creation process, intuitively and reliably creating Certified PDFs that comply with print or advertisement vendors¹ specifications.
Instant PDF uses Enfocus PDF Queues to guide the entire PDF creation process. Enfocus PDF Queues published on CertifiedPDF.net by printers, publishers, industry associations, and Enfocus can be directly imported from within Instant PDF. The built-in synchronisation feature with CertifiedPDF.net guarantees imported PDF Queues remain up-to-date, ensuring ongoing consistency with printers, publishers or industry association specifications.
Once imported, PDF Queues become accessible through the ³Save as Certified PDF² File menu functionality from within leading page layout and PDF tools such as Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, Adobe Acrobat and through the PDF Services feature in the Macintosh® OS X print panel. Instant PDF allows creative professionals to remain productive in their familiar environment without having to worry about print styles, PDF export and other PDF creation settings. In addition, Instant PDF 3 provides a comprehensive in-application help system. This help system contains a complete description of possible errors and warnings that appear during preflight, and assists the document creator in solving the problems.
Printers or publishers can easily create a Certified PDF workflow using the Enfocus PDF Workflow Suite. This product suite contains Instant PDF to setup Enfocus PDF Queues, a license to use CertifiedPDF.net to publish PDF queues, PitStop Server to automatically check and correct incoming PDF files and PitStop Professional to create PDF Profiles and Action Lists and to manually inspect, edit and correct PDF documents.
