If you’re a preflighter or or somebody just interested in quality control of your digital files, or they’re going to print or for online use, the new FlightCheck will be very interesting for you. Many will know FlightCheck it’s been around for years is one of our old boxes, our original boxes like a big shoe box, you know, and it’s a tool that will help you.
Traditionally to stand-alone preflight DTP files before going to print. Nowadays, we have many other features to help with the online usage of files as well.
The new FlightCheck has a totally new intuitive interface.
The new “FlightCheck Score” feature is pretty neat and handy too!
You can even ‘share’ your preflight score!
A new preflight score (FlightCheck Score), which is pretty amazing, very cool. And very important. FlightCheck will help you to ascertain very quickly what’s inside of your file. It’s like an x-ray. So you can drop any of the files we support like Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, Adobe Illustrator, PDFs, of course, and even Photoshop coming soon, you just dropped it off FlightCheck, and you get a report on what’s inside based on the preflight profiles, or as we call them, the Ground Controls. So what I’d like to do now is, you know, cruise on over please to our our latest post about FlightCheck, I’ll leave the link down below where you can sign up to become a beta tester today. It’s really easy.

It’s just a couple questions, you know, your email, what type of files do you like to check or what type of 1000 you’re working with? And a few other questions. And that’s it. It’s totally free, of course. And you can try and use FlightCheck in your workflow. And there are workflow features, as well, which we’ll cover, too. So, now, like, do we … Just give me a quick overview on what is inside FlightCheck, how it works, and very brief, and then, let you, all the professionals, get down to beta testing and giving us valuable feedback on what you like, what you want to see, what doesn’t work or should work, and how we can make it even better.
What’s really cool about FlightCheck now, is that it actually gives you a Preview of the file. And you can actually scroll through that preview. And when you’re in the preflight, or … Sorry. When in the inventory mode, you can actually go down, you get all information on your colors, fonts, and images. And you can see, right away, with the red things, are problems. And, if you click on one, under the intersection, and we’ll show you that in a moment here. So it’s really cool.
So you get preview, preflight, and packaging, like we always say, with FlightCheck, collecting all your fonts and images together, into one folder. And this is really, really unique, because it’s standalone and sets us apart from anybody else offering preflight. Yes, InDesign has preflight built in, but nothing like this. And, then, so much others process … a much different process here, as well. So, let’s jump right in and show you what we got here.
The new FlightCheck 2022 is coming out soon. Download the beta, in the link below. And thank you, again, for watching this. I’m just going to show you a few things about the program now. Okay, thank you for joining me on the computer, here. All of this technology. And I love this new technology in FlightCheck, that we have, right her. You just take any … I just launched FlightCheck, down here. You can drag and drop any of the files we support, like PDF, Illustrator, Quark, or InDesign, right onto the FlightCheck icon, down below, in your Dock, or just right here, into the “Let’s Get Started” window. So, we just drop all of the files, there, just show how it works, really quickly. Let me get out of the way, here.
Alright, you can see all the files open up, right like that. It doesn’t matter what they are. We’ll open up any of the various files, with a full preview of the file and, most importantly, all the big data on your DTP file. Everything that’s a problem will show up in reddish color and an arrow will be in a yellowish color. And you get the full overview and, if you switch the mode, here, you can actually get your pre flight score mode. With the FlightCheck results interface, here. We get a nice overview of everything that’s going on in the file.
So, this is very handy, to quickly ascertain what’s going on. Now, what’s neat, I can say, for instance, a particular image, I can click on, and I actually get this information, here. We’ll just use this one. And I can actually take notes. “Please, fix the Hi Res.”
The reporting is also very interesting. And let me actually show you a different way to go. This portfolio, because it’s a little bit smaller, we get all information on the core file, we get our preflight score, which is very cool, and we can actually even share the pre-flight score.
So, I can actually email or even Tweet out to somebody, which is very nice. You can now, if you’re working on a big project, you want to share this. Everybody, it’s very easy to do. To go back to the FlightCheck results, sorry, the Inspector mode, I can actually go in and, say, like, “Okay, well, you know, let’s choose the first one. It’s the image. “Please, replace with high resolution.” And you can add that, in there. You can actually go in and write into Quark or in its InDesign file into InDesign, same thing, Illustrator. We actually launched an Illustrator. But what’s cool, now, if I run a Report, which also gets packaged up, when you do that, if you’ll see, down below the HTML version of the Report, see, whereas, yeah, you see the notes we have.
So, you can now share this with your colleagues or other people in the workflow. This is very neat. You can customize the report. Check that out! And you can get it in various formats, like RTF and what-have-you. And when you collect this, you’ll get this Report, as well. So, that’s … You can make a PDF out of your file. So, very neat, if you’re missing a preview PDF, for whatever reason.
And these previews are really great, to help you very quickly and easily see what the file’s all about, in combination with the actual data that’s being used in your file and how it’s being used. And where the particular problems are. A huge file like this, if you have a problem, you need to figure out where it is and how you can get pinpointed, right to where it is. You see it’s on page 4252. We can actually navigate different ways. We could actually zoom, right in there, if we wanted to get real close-up information on our layout.
Go to markzware.com, please send us your beta feedback. Under Support, you’re going to click on Support one time. Now, bring up this and choose Trouble Ticket. When you go to Trouble Ticket, you can fill in a report, right here, and you can actually attach a document, just drag it, right here. And give us notes on what the problem or problems, particularly, are. So, this way we can, actually, help you a lot better and know exactly what’s going on. So, under “Product”, you’ll want to just put “FlightCheck”. There might be … There might come a beta, here, in the meantime, but just put “FlightCheck”, for now. And just make a note that you have the beta.
Not only will FlightCheck 2022 “Package” your files, but also preview PDF documents, as well!
If you need to know the version of your FlightCheck beta, we’ll probably know that, but you can, under about FlightCheck 2022, get the latest version information. Back to getting people to try it and to get it out. Please, share this link with folks. I’ll put it, down below, in the description. Get your colleagues checking it out, too. The more feedback we get, the better we can service you and your needs. Alright, so, that’s the new FlightCheck 2022.
As you can see, extremely powerful reporting features, and preview, and ways to interact with your document, like never before, all stand-alone. You don’t even need the Adobe, or Quark, or any other DTP applications, to use this program. The MarkzFrame engine is what it’s based on. It’s really a new technology. It’s taking preflighting, packaging, and even conversion, to a whole other level. So, check out the new FlightCheck. Similar to the old one, but much better, more intuitive, modern interface, and does even more. So, we look forward to your feedback. David Dilling, for Markzware, wishing a fantastic day!
