PitStop Extreme shipping
Enfocus has launched a new PDF editor, PitStop Extreme. The software allows for checking and correcting PDF files, handling even complex files, has a preflighting engine built in and carries Certified PDF technology for error prevention. PitStop Extreme edits similarly to a text editor; it allows for reworking characters, words or paragraphs of text and ensures that the data seen on-screen is the final PDF output. Beyond text, the software has object-editing tools for handling images and other visuals. Its preflight engine supports numerous PDF profiles, including CMYK v3.0, Generic Press v3.0, PDF to Web v3.0, PDF/X-3:2003 v5.0 Verify and others.
Enfocus PitStop Extreme installs on Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher, and requires a G5 or Intel Mac with 1GB RAM (2GB recommended). The software costs $3500, with a $2800 crossgrade available for PitStop Professional 08 users.
