Markzware FlightCheck Preflight Menu
Preflight Document – This will recheck any open documents. If you select Preflight Document and have multiple documents open, they will all be rescanned. You can also use Command -F to invoke this command. This is the same as hitting the Recheck button in the FlightStrip.

Display FlightCheck®Results – This will bring up the Results Window if you have hidden it, or it will bring the Results Window to the front if you have several windows open. You can also use Command – M to invoke this command.

Show Ground Controls – This will bring up the Ground Controls Window, if you have hidden it. If you have several windows open, it will bring the Ground Controls Window to the front. You can also use Command – G to invoke this command.

Launch Document – This will attempt to launch the native application for the current document you have open. If you have multiple documents open, FlightCheck will attempt to launch the native application for the document listed in the frontmost Overview Window. FlightCheck cannot launch applications to which you do not have access on your computer. FlightCheck will launch the latest version of the application it finds. If you preflight a QXP 8 document and have both QuarkXPress 8 and 9 loaded on your computer, FlightCheck will attempt to launch the document in QuarkXPress 9.

Find Image – This menu item will be available if you have any images flagged as missing. This allows you to select a single image and navigate to where you believe the missing image is located. When using Find Image, you can point FlightCheck to a different image than the original image used in the job. This feature allows FlightCheck to find images so image attributes (RGB, CMYK color space, resolution, etc.) can be reported. It does not link or re-link images to your job.

Show Image Folder… – This menu item will be available if you have any images flagged as missing. This allows you to select a folder where you believe the missing images reside. Once you select a folder, FlightCheck will rescan the job and look in the folder you selected for the images flagged as missing. If FlightCheck finds the images, it will report additional information about the images. If FlightCheck cannot find the images, they will still be flagged as missing. This is a great tool to see if someone has sent you all of the images required for a job. If they package the job with all images in a folder called MyImages, you can point FlightCheck to that folder. This feature allows FlightCheck to find images so image attributes (RGB, CMYK color space, resolution, etc.) can be reported. It does not link or re-link images to your job.

Recheck documents, show the Results or Ground Controls windows, launch the document’s application,
navigate to a “missing image” location, select a “missing image” folder, and more, with FlightCheck
