Hikona high-res PDF export

Kona Software has released Hikona, a relative of the company's existing KonaPDF tool. Like KonaPDF, Hikona generates PDF files from QuarkXPress documents, running them through Acrobat Distiller; Hikona outputs these files at higher resolution however, making them ready for press printing. Files are further linked to all their Quark Print settings, including resolution, bleed and registration marks, though Distiller must be adjusted to determine quality.

While all versions of Hikona are meant to output single-page, CMYK PS files, buyers of the software must supply their individual print job specifications, as these are "hard-wired" into each copy sold. Hikona costs $72 and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or higher, as well as Distiller 6 and QuarkXPress 6; Kona warns though that the program has not been tested with Mac OS X Leopard, or with QuarkXPress 7.
