While PDF files are widely accepted and reliable, the many different versions used by various companies can sometimes cause irritating problems, such as color space issues, missing fonts or images, for instance. i-cut Preflight is an application designed to help you overcome these problems by proving you with the means to detect and correct errors.
After a straightforward and uneventful installation, you are welcomed by a streamlined and clear interface. The UI is designed as a frame that enables you to open as many PDF documents as you need and edit them separately, according to the projects' specifications.
The app also includes a comprehensive toolbar that allows you to arrange PDF images and documents. For instance, if you are previewing a document, then you can choose a Preflight Standard option that is widely accepted, such as Generic Office, PDF to Wed or Soft Proof, just to name a few.
On a side note, you should know that the program can help you convert source documents to widely used industry standard, such as PDF/X-1, PDF/X-1 and CMYK commercial printing.
The idea behind the application is to offer you a simpler method to manage large format printing without having to rely on complex software solutions, such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Consequentially, you can prepare the graphics via pre-flight and hence, save time and energy trying to determine why certain pages do not print properly.
It is worth mentioning that the utility allows you to make some modifications to the files before the printing. Therefore, you can analyze and remove layers that are within an advanced image, change the fill paint and alter the objects' transparency.
All in all, if you regularly need to print schematics, plans or manage other types of large format printing, then perhaps i-cut Preflight might help you identify potential problems and correct them prior to the print job.
