PDF preflight check


Validate PDF files for print in seconds with the industry-standard preflight tool. Need to make edits or automate fixes? PitStop Pro delivers robust preflighting, editing, repairing, and reporting for any PDF challenge your team faces.

Interactive preflight report

PitStop Pro generates a preflight report based on the precise benchmarks that you choose. Reports are as basic or detailed as you or your customers require, and can be shared as a PDF file.

A PitStop Pro preflight report also contains a clickable list of warnings and errors that mean users can instantly locate issues in files with complete ease.



Full PDF editing

  • Paths – edit any vector object or add your own, including masks

  • Images – resample, reposition, rotate, crop and more

  • Color – locate and convert objects in any color space

  • Layers – manage, move, toggle and edit PDF layers

  • Pages – visualize and edit PDF page boxes, add/remove global page elements

  • Fonts – edit any text, and embed/replace problem fonts
