Enfocus PitStop 12 update 3 has been announced with support for OS X Yosemite as well as new and enhanced features based on user feedback.
PitStop 12 update 3 contains powerful new Actions for more control and options for PDF production and output.
Here’s the low down on some of the new Actions:
Match, Fill and Stroke Colors – Lets users change the stroke to match the fill (or fill to match the stroke) based on selected objects.
Add Color Bar – Gives users the ability to automatically generate a color bar utilising the document colors of each individual page. Users still have control over tint values, patch size and position
Flatten Annotations – Expands the existing ‘Flatten form fields’ Action adding configurable options, and addressing reported issues with annotations. Users can now flatten annotations so they become normal objects within the PDF.
Layer Functionality – Offers improved functionality for users working with layers in PDF files. Users can now select layers in a variety of ways, giving them the ability to select, remove, check, and change layers and layer properties. Some of the options when working with layers include the ability to: select layer by name, rename layers, add or remove objects to layers, check for and/or remove empty layers, and check and/or change layer properties.
Proportional Resizing – This highly requested feature provides users a ‘lock’ in the Inspector that can be used for proportionally resizing objects or page boxes.
Additionally, update 3 offers improved color mapping from Gray to CMYK, and the ability to rasterize PDF content using Action Lists.
The Action to “Rasterize page content keeping text” has also been improved, and both the rasterize Actions have been aligned in their functionality so this Action also gains an overprint option and a target colourspace option.
New default Action Lists
PitStop 12 update 3 comes with new pre-configured Action Lists giving users access to new features without having to create an Action List.
New functionality for PitStop Server 12 update 3
All of the new Actions and Action Lists available in PitStop Pro 12 update 3 are also available in PitStop Server. A New Adobe Transparency flattener and new PitStop Server configurator in Switch are also part of PitStop Server 12 update 3.
