Neo Professional PDF Application Ships

April 15, 2007 in Publishing (F)


XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Neo 1.1 from Enfocus. When a mistake is noticed in a job at the end of the production cycle, perhaps when it is ready to go on press, it is vital to correct the fault on the spot. As PDF has become the preferred format for document exchange, and native documents are often not available, the only solution is to edit the PDF file as quickly as possible.

Neo is flexible and efficient, handling everyday prepress editing of multi-page PDF files with ease. With Neo, operators have all the high-end editing and correction functionality in a native PDF environment that previously existed only in proprietary non-PDF systems. Neo is a huge asset in dramatically reducing the time taken for approval and correction cycles that are unavoidable in today’s demanding design, prepress and print environments.

Functionality includes accurate viewing and measuring, colour separation handling, advanced text and paragraph editing, object transformations, image editing and re-linking, clipping path handling, transparency handling, page box handling and an optional interactive trapping module. Neo also fully embraces the award-winning Certified PDF technology that is integral to all the other Enfocus products. Certified PDF sessions remain part of the PDF file, and the edits performed in Neo are added to the Certified PDF information in the PDF. The file is not only corrected on the spot but all changes are clearly identified and easily traceable at any date in the future.

When saving, users can select to execute a preflight step based on the Certified PDF profile, to make sure that after editing the file is still compliant a prepress or print specification. Interactive, productive and easy to use, Neo is a perfect add-on for commercial printers, trade shops or publishers who are faced with corrections that have to be quickly carried out at the last minute. Neo is available in two versionsâ€"with or without trapping functionality.
