Enfocus Plans to Support Certified PDF Creation from Adobe InDesign

Press release from the issuing company

San Francisco, September 25, 2001 (Seybold SF) Enfocus Software, whose innovative PitStop tools have become the industry's favorite solutions for PDF editing, preflighting, correction and certification, today announces plans for supporting the creation of Certified PDF(TM) files directly from within the new InDesign 2.0 professional page layout application unveiled by Adobe here at the Seybold Conference and Exhibition. Enfocus is developing a plug-in for Adobe InDesign 2.0 that will allow users to save an InDesign document as a Certified PDF(TM) file. A Certified PDF file is guaranteed to conform to a set of requirements for a particular print or publishing process, defined by the printer or publisher, eliminating the risk of errors or quality issues. The new plug-in will use Enfocus' preflight, correction and certification technology in conjunction with InDesign's built-in PDF export capabilities. The plug-in will be integrated in Enfocus' existing product line, extending support for the Certified PDF workflow concept to be accessed directly from within Adobe InDesign. An Enfocus Certified PDF workflow takes PDF preflight upstream to the creation stage and provides total quality control and predictable output. The recipient can be sure that the Certified PDF is compliant with his/her production specs and can track all changes throughout the workflow. The result is unprecedented reliability and predictability in Digital File Exchange. "As a long term developer offering enhanced tools for Adobe products, we're pleased to extend our latest innovations to the creative workflow and InDesign community. Certified PDF technology enables users to exchange InDesign files with confidence," says Peter Camps, CEO of Enfocus.
