Markzware Announces The Release Of Flightcheck Studio For Adobe Indesign
Press release from the issuing company
SANTA ANA, California – July 27, 2005 – Markzware, the leading developer of quality control for digital files used in the global graphic arts and printing industries is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Markzware FlightCheck Studio for Adobe InDesign CS and CS2. FlightCheck Studio v1.3 is a new concept in quality control: Real-time examination and repair of documents as you create them.
FlightCheck Studio provides content creators with an “in-flight” preflighting tool; capable of detecting virtually any problem within a digital document, based on user-defined specifications. FlightCheck Studio’s main purpose is to catch mistakes in a document while it is being created.
FlightCheck Studio is the perfect preflight companion to Adobe InDesign’s “Package” feature working in real time to find and correct design problems while the document is being created. As you go along creating a document, with just one click FlightCheck Studio immediately presents the opportunity to locate and quickly fix any potential problem.
It functions similar to the way a spell checker works. When you misspell a word, a spell checker automatically highlights the error, and allows the user to individually or globally correct it straightaway. FlightCheck Studio functions in the same way. It will check your document against a pre-defined specification. When a deviation from the specification is detected, FlightCheck Studio will alert you to the problem, and will allow you to repair the document problems you select.
The items FlightCheck Studio is capable of examining are items important to designers or creatives. It can check for page size, layout, color space, fonts, style sheets, image types, image resolution, etc. Production managers can even set up a common specification to share with other designers. As an example, a project manager can create a specification for a publication and distribute the specification to all the designers working on the job. This ensures all the designers will follow the same design parameters. The bottom line is FlightCheck Studio saves time and helps eliminate costly mistakes.
This is the second in a series of FlightCheck Studio products and is an Adobe InDesign Plugin which supports InDesign CS and CS2 running on Apple Macintosh OS X 10.2 up to 10.4 (Tiger). The new MSRP for Markzware FlightCheck Studio is $199. You can also visit http://www.markzware.com/store/.
