Markzware’s FlightCheck Online is now offered as a complete turn-key solution. Printshops can easily employ pre-flighting, collection, compression and file-transfer that is easy to install and use. FlightCheck Online is a “must-see”, as expressed by Mr. Hendrik van Haele, IT – Manager for Deckers Druk nv in Belgium. He says, “It means less print errors for us, fewer corrections and a reduction in courier costs. Above all we have a better overview of the files which have come in and we can plan more effectively.”

Both Q2ID (QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign) and ID2Q (InDesign to QuarkXPress) are highlighted at IPEX. These conversion tools enable data content created within QuarkXPress documents to be migrated into Adobe InDesign, and vice-versa. Document creators, copyrighters & translators will save countless hours of scanning, retyping and recreating content.
