The PDF Viewer is flawless. The Ghent PDF Output Suite 5.0 is displayed correctly. The separation preview also works well (but without displaying the percentage values).

The built-in PDF checks are unfortunately limited to insufficient image resolution (value can be entered), missing font embedding and missing bleed. Other important criteria (e.g. PDF/X conformity, output intent, RGB without ICC profile, white overprinting text, etc.) are not checked at all.

The PDF check of Enfocus Boarding Pass can therefore create a false sense of security. Faulty files can end up in production despite the check. All PDFs must therefore be checked again with a proper preflight tool during the prepress stage!
