[prMac.com] XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of Enfocus PitStop Professional 7.2. Its interactive and automated editing capabilities allow everyone to perform advanced PDF editing and correction up until the very last moment.
New features in version 7.2 include:
- Windows Vista (32-bit) support
- Certified PDF enhancements: The Certified PDF technology has been enhanced, for better cooperation with digital signatures
- New user interface available in some actions where users have the option to choose if they want to log particular fixes as a critical (e.g. error) or a non-critical failure (e.g. warning) in case the fix failed to be executed
- Faster startup — several improvements have been implemented to shorten the PitStop Professional startup time.
Compliant with the PDF/X and Ghent PDF Workgroup specifications, Enfocus PDF Profiles allow checking of all critical issues and the automatic correction over 100% of the most common errors. The totally redesigned Enfocus Navigator speeds up file repair by clearly indicating errors and enables interactive fixing. Enfocus Certified PDF technology embeds the PDF Profile and report in the PDF document for easy file exchange.
Enfocus have vastly improved the entire user experience with PitStop Professional 7. With a totally revamped Enfocus Navigator, which provides a clear overview of errors, warnings and fixes, and a variety of highlighting possibilities, it is straightforward to browse and fix any errors interactively. The document report has been upgraded to represent information even more simply, and can also be customised with company logos making it more attractive to customers. In addition, the user friendliness of the PDF profile editor has been extended by adding an all-in-one PDF/X check.
Each PitStop Professional 7 interface panel has a help section explaining its functionality, making it easier for users to correctly utilise those functions which are only rarely needed. In addition, the report help section has been integrated giving concise, but complete, information on the messages found on the document report. This allows the operator to act quickly and accurately on errors found in the report.
PitStop Professional 7 also introduced View and File Settings. These exchangeable settings extend the preflight concept by allowing checks to be made on file size and file name length. There is also a warning when, for example, the overprint viewing or colour management settings are not correctly configured, ensuring that beyond regular file integrity, the environmental conditions under which the file is viewed are optimally set.
The user interfaces on the Global Change and Action List panels have been greatly enhanced by introducing category filters, enabling specific actions to be found more quickly. Users can effortlessly toggle between Action List and PDF Profile panels and store them locally or centrally, readily accessible for other operators. From within the Action List control panel, actions can now be recorded, making it much simpler and faster to build
Action Lists for automated editing in any of the Enfocus product range.
Other new or improved features include an easy user interface for creating page box templates, improved panels for setting guides, and the ability to place other PDF documents into an existing PDF file, as well as the capability to convert text to outlines.
