About preflight libraries

Preflight profiles, fixups, and checks are now well-organized in Libraries. Libraries can be useful to get customized sets of profiles, checks, and corrections. They can be useful in the following ways:

  • Create an extensive library for required workstations or partners.
  • A smaller set of functions can be clubbed within a single library for specified group.
  • Workflows for a specific process can be put in a single library.
    For example, digital printing and publishing functions such as offset, digital, printing, large format and, much more can be grouped within a single library.
