Popular PDF preflighting and editing tool now supports Adobe® Acrobat® X Standard and Pro as well as the latest ISO standards
February 1, 2011 – Gent, Belgium – Enfocus announces the update 1 of its PitStop Pro 10 application. Update 1 offers compatibility with the latest Adobe® Acrobat® X Standard and Pro. It also introduces compatibility with the latest PDF/X-4:2010 and PDF/A ISO standards.
"To serve our customers at their best interest, Enfocus always aims to be compatible with the latest design solutions and industry specifications. The release of PitStop Pro 10 update 1 keeps this key product at the leading edge of Adobe® Acrobat® and ISO standards compatibility," says Elli Cloots, Director of Product Management at Enfocus.
Enfocus PitStop Pro 10 is a plug-in to Adobe® Acrobat® X Standard or Pro. The recent introduction of Adobe® Acrobat® X saw a major change to the user interface. It no longer uses the familiar toolbar menus but now groups all the main panels on the right side of the document window. The latest PitStop Pro 10 update 1 is designed to work with this new menu structure. However it still remains compatible with the previous Acrobat 8.1 (or higher) and 9.x Standard or Pro versions, on both Mac OS X and Windows platforms.
Support for latest PDF/X-4 and PDF/A
At the same time Enfocus has taken the opportunity to add support for the latest PDF/X-4:2010 standard. This standard has recently been finalized and replaces PDF/X-4:2008. PDF/X-4 supports color-managed data as well as PDF transparency and optional content.
PDF/A, now also supported, is a file format for the long-term archiving of electronic documents. With the update 1, PitStop Pro enables users to check against these ISO specifications including a large number of corrections.
Faster, easier, smarter
PitStop Pro has long been recognized for its many PDF editing features and its user-friendly design, enabling easy management and customization of presets and tools. Under the 'You first' commitment to the customers, Enfocus listened to extensive user feedback and further expanded these features in PitStop Pro 10, which was introduced in September 2010.
It introduced features that had been particularly requested by customers. These have been designed to help users to work faster with greater precision, and also to save significant amounts of time. It also concentrated on making color management more accessible for everybody, with easy controls and the ability to import users’ own color libraries. Action Lists are easier to use too, while QuickRuns now include Global Changes, which apply changes across all the pages in a document.
