Enfocus Introduces PitStop Extreme Bringing High-Efficiency PDF Editing to the Desktop

October 21st, 2008

Enfocus announces the availability of a brand-new addition to the PitStop product family. PitStop Extreme is a standalone, high-efficiency PDF editor designed from the ground up to allow quick checking and correcting of even the most complex PDF files. PitStop Extreme also incorporates Enfocus’ best-in-class preflighting engine and Certified PDF technology to prevent editing errors and safeguard the file.

“We are extremely excited to be bringing this additional capability to the PitStop family of products,” said David van Driessche, Director of Enfocus Marketing. “PitStop Extreme has an intuitive user interface that is geared toward editing PDF files in the production environment, making it easy and safe to edit even complex files without the need for any additional software investments. In an increasingly competitive and time-sensitive graphic communications environment, this capability will bring a new level of productivity and accuracy to the production process, especially when last-minute changes are needed.”

PitStop Extreme is standards-compliant, including PDF/X and the Ghent PDF Workgroup specifications.
Its familiar editing environment means a limited training requirement. And it operates in both Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows environments.

PitStop Extreme will be demonstrated at IFRA Expo 2008, 27 to 30 October 2008 at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam (stand 10635). Once the product has been released, interested parties can visit the Enfocus website (http://www.enfocus.com) to download a fully functional trial version. Fully functional trial versions of all other Enfocus products will be available as well; these products may also be purchased online.

“Enfocus users now have multiple choices for PDF editing,” adds Mr. van Driessche. “PitStop Professional allows PDF editing using the familiar environment of AdobeR Acrobat, and PitStop Extreme comes with a complementary license for PitStop ProfessionalR allowing the convenience of editing from within AdobeR AcrobatR should that need arise.” Mr. van Driessche also points out that current users of PitStop Professional can easily upgrade to PitStop Extreme and still have continued access to their PitStop Professional license.

Product Details

PitStop Extreme: Extreme power and productivity in the management of PDF workflows

PitStop Extreme provides accurate viewing of any PDF file, exactly as it will be printed. Unlimited zoom; fast switching to outline preview; and viewing of separations, transparencies, overprints and total area coverage are a few of the features that make it easy to inspect files in detail. In addition, file elements can be easily accessed and edited at the object level. This includes the ability to interactively move, scale or rotate any object.

Standard Enfocus PitStop Action Lists can be used to automate document-wide changes in almost any conceivable manner. PitStop Extreme also includes full text editing capabilities that allow users to work within the native PDF file, with access to characters, words, text lines and paragraphs, making it easy to reflow text, change justification or even link different text blocks on the page for instant text reflow while editing. In addition, PitStop Extreme allows for image editing and/or replacement within the native PDF file.

With PitStop Extreme, users have extreme flexibility in dealing with PDF files containing transparency. Files can be edited without changing transparency, or transparent objects can be easily and reliably flattened in the file.

Editing PDF files with PitStop Extreme is virtually risk-free. After editing, PitStop Extreme saves the edits to the PDF file, touching only the modified objects, and retaining non-printing objects such as metadata. Users can choose to preflight files while saving with an Enfocus PDF Profile, as well as work within an Enfocus Certified PDF workflow to save and track all PDF file modifications.

PitStop Extreme is based on the same product architecture as parent company EskoArtwork’s Neo, a mature and proven platform. Neo is specifically designed to fit within an EskoArtwork workflow framework with additional features required in those environments and is sold and supported directly by EskoArtwork, PitStop Extreme is a standalone application that will be sold through the Enfocus distribution channel and is designed specifically to support those markets.


PitStop Extreme will be sold through an extensive distribution network and directly from the Enfocus website. 

PitStop Extreme will be priced at 2.499 Euro (3.499 USD). Included in the license for PitStop Extreme is a free license to use PitStop Professional on the same system. Alternatively PitStop Professional 08 users can buy a crossgrade license priced at 1.899 Euro (2.799 USD), to use PitStop Extreme on the same system. This set up offers the users full flexibility in choice of editing options.

PitStop Extreme will become available on Mac OS X (10.4 or 10.5) or Microsoft Windows (Windows XP and Vista).
