Callas Software (http://www.callassoftware.com) has updated pdfToolbox, a tool for any print professional offering PDF correction and color management capabilities from within Adobe Acrobat, to version 5.3.
The software now integrates with the most recent version of the Adobe PDF Library and fully supports Mac OS X 10.7 (“Lion”). Also, you can now restrict the area rendered when generating images to an existing page box (such as the trim box) or a custom area. This means preview images can now be generated without having to output different PDF files for different workflow uses.
Additionally callas pdfToolbox 5.3 offers more possibilities for the output file naming convention while splitting PDF files into segments and adds extra options to the page scaling fix-ups. The new release also provides a new preflight check to detect the use of Roman ligatures. What’s more, callas pdfToolbox 5.3 introduces a full Japanese localization, including a number of specific features for the Japanese market such as support for adding and recognizing Japanese printer marks and support for common color conversion profiles.
The update for existing callas pdfToolbox Desktop 5 or callas pdfToolbox Server 5 customers is free of charge. For new customers, callas pdfToolbox Desktop 5.3 is available for approximately US$695. callas pdfToolbox Server 5.3 is available from approximately $5,568.
