Well... if you're here you probably tried it.
What do you think? We're very curious ;)

Definitely something we'd like to use, however this tool could really use integration with PitStop, so we could make our own custom checks. Perhaps such integration is planed?

Just installed and even though I intentionally "messed with" the PDF imported, it's not flagged any of the issues I created.

I rotated a few pages 90 degrees, and removed the bleed on others, but the left pane only shows Seps and Trim size - no warnings like the demo presentation showed. Is this a really REALLY stripped down release? Was hoping to have some Admins give it a test drive, but if it's just a glorified PDF Viewer, I'll wait.

You should be seeing warnings and errors for image resolution, missing fonts and missing bleed on the left hand Panel Rob?

You can ping me your test file if you want, you have my email I think.

Andrew,

Ok, I maybe should have tested a few more files! I did a sample PDF out of InDesign with the same intentional errors and boarding Pass did indeed flag them & display in the left pane. However, I rotated one of the pages 90 degrees and it's still displaying ALL the pages as right reading, no warning about a bad rotation in the PDF.

Here's the Sample PDF I created.

Rob_Wh:

PitStop sees the rotation as 270 degrees. This has given me fits in the past when trying to impose. Certain software honors that rotation, others do not. So, I ran the action, "Zero Rotation Key" and checked the file again with BoardingPass.

No problem! Can't tell you how many times the "Zero Rotation Key" has gotten me in trouble. :P
