Enfocus PitStop Pro

Overview

Edit Away!

PitStop Professional is a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat Standard, Professional, or X that is used to preflight PDF files for readiness to print. It helps you be sure that all necessary "raw materials" are present and correctly assembled. In addition, PitStop provides comprehensive interactive editing tools that modify type, color and page geometry to facilitate last-minute corrections and edits when access to the native or original file is not an option.

PitStop Server is a server-based application that runs independently of Acrobat. It uses hot folders to take in files and then run Preflight Profiles and Action Lists automatically. No interactive editing is possible with PitStop Server. Up to two files can be processed simultaneously and independently.
