Markzware’s FlightCheck patented preflighting technology has been saving users millions of dollars since its inception to the market in 1995. The popularity of preflight PDF standards and multiple shorter-run digital printing jobs have contributed to the increased importance of properly prepared files.

The application includes checks for a plethora of layout applications and digital files of many types, with the ability to check over 250 various items.
This release of Markzware FlightCheck 5.6 now expands and improves the solution in several areas. In addition to compatibility upgrades for Macintosh OS X Tiger and QuarkXPress 6.5, FlightCheck‘s new enhancements are:
- Brand new Ground Control for detecting embedded fonts in native files
- Improved accuracy for reading Illustrator CS EPS files
- Improved support for fonts activated through Extensis Suitcase
- Detection of Pantone colorized text for both InDesign and QuarkXPress
- Detection of boxes with a ‘Content Of None’ in QuarkXPress
