PDF preflighting can be performed during prepress with FlightCheck, preflight solution from Markzware. FlightCheck checks several types of native files, including PDF, for print quality control before document output. Zevrix has an InDesign plugin to preflight InDesign files, similar to the built-in Live Preflight function within Adobe CS4. We call that process a midflight check, not a preflight or postflight check on a PDF. Markzware saw this mention of that preflight tool:
