Apago releases PDF/X Checkup 3.0

AUGUST 1, 2003 — Apago, Inc. has released Version 3.0 of its PDF/X Checkup software. PDF/X Checkup 3.0 is a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat that allows you to create and preflight PDF/X-1a and PDF/X-3 files.

PDF/X Checkup 3.0 includes two additional plug-ins: imageAlter and BoxEditor. imageAlter allows you to modify the resolution, compression and color of images inside a PDF file. BoxEditor is an innovative plug-in for quickly editing the bleed and trim boxes required by PDF/X. BoxEditor has a library for storing frequently used publication specifications. That is $300 worth of plug-ins for free!
