Markzware FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Main Menu: File Menu

Markzware FlightCheck File MenuOpen – This will open a file for and begin preflighting it. You can also do a Command – O.

Open Recent – This will bring up a list of recently preflighted files. The number of items in this list is controlled under the General Preferences area. Usually somewhere between 3 and 10 files is the standard number of recent files people are comfortable seeing.

Add File – This item is only available if you have a file open in FlightCheck. Selecting Add File brings up a standard Open File dialog where you can select additional files to open in FlightCheck without closing the currently open file. If you have a Non-PDF file open and you use the Add File feature to select a PDF to preflight, you will not get the results you are expecting. Only one Preflight Mode (PDF or non-PDF) is active at a time in FlightCheck. Whichever is open first when an Add File operation is performed is the one that is used for ALL files added, until you either quit FlightCheck or perform another Open command. Do not mix PDF and Non-PDF files in the same session. Completely preflight one file type, then perform an Open on the other file type. The Open operation will close out the previous file.

Load Preflight Mode – This allows you to manually select and load a Preflight Mode file. It is recommended that, instead of this, you use Preflight Mode and make a selection from the fly-out menu.

Preflight Mode – This will bring up a fly-out menu where you can select a specific Preflight Mode. The main use for this is to manually switch languages. All different languages that FlightCheck finds on startup are listed. If you need to manually switch Preflight Modes, disable the “Auto Preflight Detection” Preference located under Advanced Preferences. Otherwise, FlightCheck will switch back to the default language selected during installation of FlightCheck.

Close – Closes the Results or Ground Controls windows, if they are the front window. If the Overview Window is the front window, then the current job is closed and you must re-open the job to see new Results and Overview windows.

Save – Not available and is grayed out

Save As – If the Results Window is the front window, this will save a FlightCheck Results report in text format. If the Overview window is the front window, this will save a text version of the Overview window report. This does not work for the Ground Controls window.

Revert – Not available and is grayed out

Page Setup – Brings up a standard system Page Setup window where you can configure your printed page format. It is important to setup your page orientation as this affects the Print Preferences area. FlightCheck does not automatically switch the Page Orientation for you when you select Portrait or Landscape under the Print Preferences area. You must perform that task manually in this area.

Print Results – This will appear in the menu if the Results window is the front window. It will bring up a standard Page Setup window where you can configure your page setup.

Print Report … – This will appear in the menu if the Overview window is the front window. It will first bring up the Print Overview window selection window, where you can select the sections of the Overview report you want included. Once you hit OK, you will be presented with the Standard Page Setup window.
Markzware FlightCheck File Menu Print OverviewPrint Ground Controls… – This will appear in the menu if the Ground Controls window is the front window. It will bring up a standard Page Setup window, where you can configure your page setup. The format of the Ground Controls printout is text based and not graphical like FlightCheck‘s UI.

Open files, choose a language, customize your preflight report and more with FlightCheck
