The PDF option provides the ability to create and normalize PDFs from incoming PostScript files, making PDF the intermediate file format within the workflow, standardizing the process. Setups for Web, Screen, Print (laser/inkjet) and Press are part of the built-in configurations.

Also included are preflight tools utilizing the Enfocus PitStop library. These tools automatically flag/correct common errors found in PDF files using Xitron-provided or customer-created Enfocus PitStop Profiles and Action Lists.
