Enfocus PitStop 2021 is available

Enfocus has released the new 2021 version of PitStop Pro and PitStop Server.

Some of the most significant new features include:

  • Imposition of booklets (see video)
  • Check and create bleed around a die-cut outline (see video)
  • Improvements to page-based bleeding functionality
  • 32/64bit application (PitStop Pro with Acrobat Windows)

With PitStop 2021, users can now check, crop and recreate the bleed along a vector outline. This allows PDF files with punch lines or digital trim lines to be quickly processed in prepress.

Additional highlights of PitStop 2021 are presented in six short videos.

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.)
