New PitStop Professional 6.5 supports Acrobat 7 and allows checking and fixing of PDF 1.6-specific features during preflight; and also runs on the latest Windows and Macintosh operating systems, including new Macintosh OS X Tiger.

Today a production coordinator and customer service representative at Miami, Florida-based National Litho, Medrano says, “I highly recommend that any graphic arts professional utilizing PDFs for file exchange put Enfocus PitStop Professional into their program directory.”
