Esko has presented the new PDF Editor ArtPro+ for packaging prepress at Drupa for the first time. Despite the similar name ArtPro+ has not much in common with the old ArtPro. ArtPro+ is a completely new application with an intuitive user interface. The most important aspect is the fact that ArtPro+ can edit PDF files nativly (without any conversion).
The new editor is using the PDF Processing Steps of the Ghent Workgroup.
It seams that the PDF format has finally arrived in packaging prepress. After PACKZ from Hybrid, Esko is now also introducing with ArtPro+ a native PDF editor.
