Why you should complete this activity

This activity introduces the Advanced Preflight feature in a Prinergy system. Advanced Preflight uses profiles to evaluate input files to detect problems that may affect processing in a publishing or prepress workflow.
This activity is important because it illustrates how to:

  • Create a preflight profile
  • Refine input files using preflight profiles
  • Review preflight reports

Important: Preflight Profiles is a licensed feature. Before completing this activity, determine if this feature is available as part of your Prinergy system.

What you'll need

For this activity you need to locate:

  • Prinergy Activity Practice Files / Act_07_Preflight

The instructor or coach will provide you with the location of the practice files.
Note: If you are completing this activity on your own or coaching others in your shop, copy the Prinergy Activity Practice Files folder (available on the Kodak Partner Place internet portal at directly to your workstation. For further information about these procedures, see Activity 1.

What you need to know

With PDF Preflight, you can, during the refine process, evaluate PDF pages to detect problems that may affect processing in a publishing or prepress workflow.

PDF Preflight uses profiles to compare the PDF files to a number of criteria. Each profile represents a collection of settings that is checked during the refine process.

You must use the Preflight+ Profile Manager to add a preflight profile before preflighting PDF pages.

The PDF Preflight section of a refine process template defines the profile used to check for errors and defines how to handle those errors.

Process template used:

  • Refine process template: Refine > Refine > 1st Ref-Normz

  • No labels
