Hi everybody, David Dilling here from Markzware. Some of you may have noticed a new release on the Markzware web page. You may have seen mentions on Twitter or in the larger publishing and print industry press about the Markzware release of FLIGHTCHECK for Macintosh. Preflight users who want to package Illustrator files, this is for you! There are two very important features I would like to tell you about in more detail.

FlightCheck and Adobe Illustrator Files
The first FlightCheck item I want to highlight is its improved handling of many of the DTP layout file application formats we support. In particular, Adobe Illustrator or Illustrator files. Now of course we preflight InDesign and QuarkXPress, PDF, Photoshop, EPS and TIFF; you can pretty much name it.

Illustrator preflight has really improved with FlightCheck, which has long been able to preflight and package Adobe Illustrator files. FlightCheck allows you to drop any file onto the app, like an EPS or a PDF. I can drop an InDesign layout or the native Illustrator file on the FlightCheck icon in my dock and it gets to work for me. Whether you package InDesign, Illustrator, or another graphic arts file, FlightCheck is that easy to use!

FlightCheck can preflight check an Illustrator file and give you a results page with the preflight overview. FlightCheck can check the Illustrator file and give details of that print file, the colors, fonts and used images. FlightCheck is the patented preflight solution to preflight Illustrator files. You can set up your checks within FlightCheck’s Ground Controls.

FlightCheck can also package, or collect files and put them into one folder. So now, FlightCheck will collect your Adobe Illustrator file, with all of the fonts and images used or placed within the .ai file, your font suitcases, and a preflight report. Furthermore, FlightCheck even compresses the packaged job, which is quite handy. Select “Collect” within FlightCheck, to start the collection process.

FlightCheck will treat each Quark layout as a separate document, as a new Quark document. So, a new FlightCheck Overview window will appear for each Quark layout used within the DTP file. A single Results Window will show all of the preflight data.

FlightCheck can check almost any DTP document, InDesign, Quark, EPS, and PDF. It can even handle Multi-Layouts in QuarkXPress 8. You can take a Quark 9 document and drop it on the Flight Strip within FlightCheck.

You will see the main Results screen. It shows exactly where those preflight problems are. You can see the Quark layout with the file name. We get all of the preflight details of the Quark file and now we can see this, per used layout, within the Quark 9 file. So, in QuarkXPress 8 or 9, you can have multiple layouts in any given document. That is a handy new feature. Like with Illustrator or InDesign files, we can collect the QuarkXPress job.

You can buy Markzware’s preflight solution on the FlightCheck page on markzware.com. See more printing solutions on the Products page.

FlightCheck is like an X-Ray to help you preflight QuarkXPress, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, PDFs, EPS, TIFFs, etc. Download today and try out the free FlightCheck trial version and see for yourself why Markzware FlightCheck is the standard preflight application.

FlightCheck is such a logical decision. It is a very affordable product that will just help you improve your bottom-line or ROI. A new copy of FlightCheck is well worth its weight in gold. Use it within your workflow, graphics machine or preflight department. Preflight Illustrator with Markzware FlightCheck during the Illustrator prepress workflow.
