Callas software announces the release of pdfToolbox 12, as part of a series of free online events. These events will take place from November 16 to 20, 2020 from 15:00 to 18:00. Each of these online presentations will show different new features and enhancements of pdfToolbox 12.
The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) offers a free webinar on PDF fonts on 23.9.20 at 4 pm.
As reliable as PDF files are, there are still things that can wrong with them from time to time. One of the leading causes of such problems usually is the subject of fonts. Watch this webinar to understand fonts better: because it’s always smart to know your enemy, we’ll dissect some fonts for you and talk about character codes, glyphs, encodings, Multiple Master fonts, city fonts and much more.

Martin Bailey, CTO of Global Graphics and longtime U.K. representative to the ISO PDF/X committee, has published an article about the difference between PDF/X-1a and PDF/X-4.
In particular, he discusses the question of responsibility for color. With PDF/X-1a, the creator is responsible for the correct colors. With PDF/X-4, the responsibility lies with the prepress specialists.
In Callas pdfToolbox 11 the functions for creating missing bleed have been enhanced.
The new possibilities are used in the included Check and fix bleed process plan. This process plan has been developed by Calibrate. Calibrate’s managing director, Peter Kleinheider, recently presented the features in a webinar by Four Pees.
Users of the latest version of Enfocus PitStop Server 2020 will receive a link to download the Enfocus Switch Core Engine for free. This allows more extensive automation to be realized with PitStop Server than with the previous hotfolder mechanism of the PitStop Server. Enfocus thus initiates a slow integration of PitStop Server and Switch. However, the previous hot folder functions are (currently) still available.
