Chapter 12. OUTPUT > Creating a Preflight Report

Creating a Preflight Report

When you create an InDesign document, yon have two jobs, designer and production manager. As the designer you can easily see your errors. But as the production manager, you may not realize that the color you have created will not print correctly or that the image you placed is the wrong resolution or format. Fortunately, InDesign has a built-in preflight utility that checks all the elements in your document to make sure they print correctly. (The name comes from the list that airline pilots must complete before they take off.)

To run the preflight utility:

1.
Choose File > Preflight. In Design takes a moment to check all the elements of the document and then opens the Preflight dialog box.

2.
Review the information in the Preflight Summary .

Figure 12.26. The Preflight Summary contains an overview of all the information assembled by the Preflight utility.
