Manual editing tools such as PitStop Pro are extremely useful in correcting last-minute problems in PDF files and making them suitable for production. PitStop Server takes that same power to an automated level; using a convenient watched folder architecture it allows you to automate inspection and correction of PDF files.
It's easy to imagine how preflighting can be automated using PitStop Server, but the opportunities are much larger.
- Fixing common problems in PDF files
- Adjusting the colors of PDF files for a particular output device
- Adding stamps, watermarks or background templates
PitStop Server is built on the industry-standard Enfocus preflight engine to check all aspects of your PDF files and detect missing or corrupt fonts, incorrect colours, objects without bleed and much more. It supports standards such as PDF/X, the Ghent PDF Workgroup specifications and the profiles created by your user association, publisher or printer. You can generate a full pre-flight report that lists all problems found in your files; PitStop Server supports the same user-friendly preflight reports than PitStop Pro but also allows generating comprehensive XML reports.
When more integration is in order, the CLI (command-line interface) included with PitStop Server makes it a breeze. An easy mode allows instant integration of the preflight and auto-correction capabilities with standard settings, while the advanced mode allows full customisation using an XML-driven integration.
