Extensis Offers Preflight Online Support for QuarkXPress Files
Press release from the issuing company
PORTLAND, OR - Extensis Products Group today announced that Preflight Online, their groundbreaking, patent-pending online preflighting solution now offers support for QuarkXPress files. Preflight Online is the only online preflighting solution that is purely web-based and does not require the installation of any desktop applications.
The new version of Preflight Online, which is now in public beta, can remotely inspect and analyze QuarkXPress 4.x files, reporting on more than 60 different potential problems involving fonts, colors, images and other document specifications. The web-based tool analyzes all fonts and images used within QuarkXPress documents to create a complete report that can be accessed by printers and service bureaus before customers even submit files for output at the printers.
In addition, a new component of the service can automatically collect all the required fonts and linked images used in a QuarkXPress job and compress these into a single archive for easy submission, virtually eliminating one of the most common problems that plagues service bureaus--customer jobs that contain missing elements. As with Preflight Online's file analysis, the entire collection and compression of jobs is performed within the web browser environment, without the need for additional desktop software.
The new version of Preflight Online, which also includes enhanced support for Adobe PDF files, works with QuarkXPress 4.x documents created on both the Mac and Windows platforms.
