Enfocus Expands Switch 09 Automation Family with Update 2
New Certified PDF tool
Enfocus also adds a tool that can route Enfocus Certified PDF files according to preflight state (error, success, warning and sign-off). This is available for all Switch users (even in LightSwitch), without the need to install third party software.
Certified PDF files coming from Enfocus PitStop Pro, PitStop Server and Instant PDF can be sorted automatically, but Switch users will get the most out of this tool when processing files coming from Enfocus PitStop Connect, an application launched earlier in 2010. PitStop Connect allows printers and publishers to 'connect' with their customers, supplying them with a Connector, a droplet used by a creative to preflight and deliver their PDFs according to required production specifications.
PitStop Connect seamlessly integrates with Enfocus Switch. Once files are delivered to Switch through one of the Connectors made in PitStop Connect, they can be sorted depending on the result of the preflight process performed in the Connector.
"Users of PowerSwitch, which supports metadata and scripting, will benefit even more from this update because handling script expression and picking up metadata has been improved, as well," Cloots says.
Switch 09 Update 2 is available now. Existing users of LightSwitch 09, FullSwitch 09 and PowerSwitch 09 can upgrade by downloading a free update from the Enfocus website. Users of earlier versions should contact their local dealers for upgrade offers.
A fully functional (time-limited) trial version can be downloaded from the Enfocus website www.enfocus.com, where trial versions of all other Enfocus products are also available.
