FlightCheck Prov5.7 saves us and many that I know a lot of money. I have seen some interesting reviews and seems like many are comparing apples to kiwis, which just is not a good idea. (yes, v4.5 was as solid as a rock, but ever since OSX came out, all (ALL) applications took time and are still being better optimized to run on this operating system.)

We tried InDesign's "so-called" preflight and that was a joke, could not even check EPS limages and at that, the details are extremely limited.

All in all, I would recommend FlightCheck to anyone and certainly any printer, as it preflights numerous file types, from PDF to Quark and InDesign!

To my prior post. Again, I must apologize. The last bad review was in 5/24/05, and MANY other bad ones before it. And finally a good review 9/13/05. That STILL should tell the potential buyer - BEWARE !!! By the way I won't give another "1" rating, since it stinks on it's own anyway. The funny thing is, it truly is "#1" (poor).

"FlightCheck v5.7 introduces full preflight support for Adobe Creative Suite 2 components, including InDesign CS2 (v4)" ?!?!?!

WHO CARES !?!?! And why waste $500.00 ?!?! Adobe Indesign does an amazing job on it's own collecting the files properly and quickly. When trying to use FlightCheck... Ahhh, forget it. There's no point expressing what most people have been expressing for the longest time now. As I'm writing this, I must apologize. I guess people have given up. There hasn't been a review on this terrible program since 5/19/05. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THIS PROGRAM JUST ISN'T !!! UPGRADE THAT IN YOUR PROGRAM !!!
