Problem of Enfocus PitStop Pro Mac
with latest Acrobat version solved

Recently, Enfocus had warned PitStop users on Mac about updating to the latest version of Acrobat Update September 2021, which Adobe recently released.

The Mac version of this update caused an issue for PitStop Pro: when one or more objects are selected in PitStop Pro, the selected objects and anchor points are not displayed. Enfocus has published a knowledgebase article about this.

In the meantime, Enfocus has been able to fix the problem. You have to install the latest version of PitStop Pro (2021.0.3). According to Enfocus, affected users will be automatically notified when the update is available via PitStop’s new update feature.

A reader of PDF-AKTUELL already reported this problem with PitStop in a german comment two days before the Enfocus warning and reported another problem with Callas pdfToolbox.

Windows users are not affected by this problem.

Enfocus releases version 1 of
Boarding Pass

After a long public testing period Enfocus har released version 1.0 of Enfocus Boarding Pass.

BoardingPass is a solution that allows incoming data to be checked for the most important print-relevant criteria. With BoardingPass, customer service and sales staff are able to check incoming PDF print data directly from their mail application and give the client easy-to-understand feedback. This means that the print data does not even have to go through the print service provider’s internal production workflow, but can be checked directly for print-relevant criteria and also reviewed.

Problems again with
PDF/X export in InDesign?

Some time ago I reported on a solution for a problem with the PDF/X export in InDesign CC 2019.

With the update to InDesign 14.0.1 released on 19.11.18 (according to Adobe) the problem should also be solved.

Now, several readers have recently reported that the problem has reappeared in the latest version CC 2021 (version 16.1). (Unfortunately I can currently not reproduce the problem since I have to stick with an older MacOS version because of customer project.)

Enfocus Software warns PitStop users to switch to MacOS 11 (Big Sur).

Enfocus is testing this operating system and has found some compatibility issues with PitStop Pro and Server. It is therefore recommended that all PitStop users do NOT upgrade to this operating system when it is released. Enfocus is currently working on an update for PitStop 2020 that will provide support for MacOS 11 Big Sur.

UPDATE: Enfocus PitStop 2020 Update 1 supports MacOS 11 (Big Sur).
