Read on to learn how these preflight features can help you.
Markzware FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Ground Controls:
Off – This Ground Control will trigger if Registration Marks are set to off. In many workflows people want to add their own registration marks, this means that in FlightCheck you will want to have this Ground Control turned off unless you need to detect this condition.
Centered – This Ground Control will trigger if the user has turned on Registration Marks. In QuarkXPress, the user can select Centered Registration Marks, whereas in InDesign, merely clicking the Registration Marks checkbox in the Marks and Bleeds screen sets the Registration Marks to Centered. Many Printers like to add their own marks and prefer not to receive print jobs with Registration Marks turned on. By default this Ground Control is On to catch any registration marks created by applications such as InDesign and QuarkXPress.
Off Center – This Ground Control relates only to QuarkXPress where the user can select Off Center Registration marks. InDesign does not have this selection by default. Many Printers like to add their own marks and prefer not to receive print jobs with Registration Marks turned on. By default this Ground Control is On to catch any registration marks created by Quark.
