FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Preferences: Fonts in Document Path

You can use Markzware‘s preflight solution, FlightCheck, to collect files and package fonts. Under the Fonts tab in the Preferences area of Markzware‘s preflight solution, FlightCheck, there is a <Document Path> option. This option helps you to make sure all required fonts are included with the print job:

FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Preferences: Fonts in Document Path

Graphic designers, printers, publishers, or creative professionals in prepress may receive a packaged or collected job. When you want to know if the person sent all fonts required for the job, you can uncheck all but the <Document Path>. When you do this, FlightCheck looks in the same folder as the file you are preflighting. If it finds a folder, it will look inside of it for fonts. Whether you call the font folder “Fonts“, or “MyFonts” or “JobFonts“, FlightCheck will tell you if the fonts are present.
With this feature, fonts in the <Document Path> do not need to be Active for FlightCheck to report about them or to collect them. If FlightCheck knows where the fonts are, it can address them.
If you use this method, please make sure that you go to the Fonts tab in FlightCheck’s Preferences. Then, uncheck the “Inactive Fonts” and “Inactive Used FontsGround Controls. (Otherwise, all fonts found in the <Document Path> will be flagged as Inactive and Inactive Used Fonts. The exception would be if you activate fonts “in place” and you activated fonts in the <Document Path> folder using a 3rd-party font-management tool.)
