Bespoke PDF Production with Acrobat 9 & PitStop Overview

Enfocus Logo and Introduction Course Delegates

PDF has made major inroads into the publishing and printing industries in recent years and a good knowledge of how to produce and preflight PDF documents is essential to anybody working on the technical side of document publishing and printing. XChange Training are now offering a course that provides you with precisely that by focussing on two key PDF production and preflighting tools: Adobe Acrobat Professional and Enfocus PitStop Professional.

Adobe Acrobat Professional is the creative industry standard application for PDF creation, proofing and exchange. A good knowledge of this application and PDF technology in general is essential for anyone working in the modern reprographic, production and print industry. Acrobat Professional added a host of new features suited for print production, including:

  • Better preflighting
  • Colour separation previews
  • Colour conversion
  • Ink management
  • Trapping presets etc.

Enfocus PitStop Professional is the standard tool for editing and preflighting PDF files for print workflows. With Enfocus PitStop Professional you can make manual changes to PDF documents, check the properties of individual elements in a PDF documents, perform highly comprehensive preflights of your documents and with PitStop’s Action Lists you can even automate many tedious changes you need made to PDF documents.
