Package multiple jobs

InPreflight Pro is the only program that can preflight and package multiple jobs. Among other abilities, it can collect all files into one folder, eliminating the need to collect the same links multiple times for each design. The savings can result in gigabytes of space and hours of production time.

Detect embedded fonts in Illustrator files

Embedded fonts in Illustrator files (both EPS and native) can cause costly delays and confusion if you send packaged InDesign jobs to service providers. The fonts are indeed embedded in Illustrator files so they can be printed without the actual fonts being installed. However, if users try to open the files in Illustrator, the fonts will be reported as missing - even though they are embedded.

Your printer will require you to provide missing fonts, which can result in additional charges and missing deadlines, which can translate into hundreds of dollars lost.

bos

Detect TIFF and EPS compression

TIFF and EPS images can be saved with various compression options (LZW/ZIP/JPEG and JPEG respectively). Compressed images can be incompatible with various output equipment, such as imagesetters and printers of certain models. It applies to both collected images and the ones used in PDF files.

These problems can result in costly delays, missing deadlines and additional charges by service providers.

bos

Detect illegal link names and locations

Depending on your workflow, you may store links in specifically named locations, or name them in certain way. For example, your lo-res link can be stored on the LO-RES OPI volume. Or your random scans have the text "_random" appended to their names. Such links can end up in your final InDesign files by mistake.

If left undetected, they can cause a wide range of problems - from missing deadlines and service charges, to costly reprints and even lost clients. Which can translate from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars lost.

InPreflight can detect illegal names and locations according to your workflow specs, saving you from potential disasters.

More...
