Using FlightCheck to Begin Preflighting

You can start the preflight process, by dragging and dropping your file(s) onto the FlightCheck interface. FlightCheck will immediately display Previews of the pages in the document(s). What’s amazing is that there’s no need for the native or host applications.

FlightCheck Takes You To The Problem, For Fixing

FlightCheck enables navigation, directly to the location of an issue. You can decide whether to address the issue, now, within the native application, or to edit the PDF of the document within Acrobat, or other options.

FlightCheck includes IDMarkz, Markzware’s Adobe InDesign converter, at no cost. When packaging the Adobe InDesign jobs, IDMarkz will create an IDML file.

FlightCheck also works seamlessly with other Markzware products, such as PDFMarkz, QXPMarkz, or OmniMarkz (which is a combination of IDMarkz, PDFMarkz, and QXPMarkz). So, you can create an IDML file for import into QuarkXPress, Affinity Publisher, and other applications that support IDML!

FlightCheck is the essential
preflight tool for digital print and
publishing professionals, including:

creative designers
customer service reps
graphics professionals
prepress departments
print shops.
