Chapter 11. Printing > Preflight and Package

Preflight and Package

Are all systems “go”? Do you know the number of kilometers, meters, and centimeters it’ll take to get your publication safely in orbit around Mars? Or is it miles, feet, and inches?

Preflight

To make sure that your publication is really ready for “prime time,” you should use the Preflight plug-in (choose Preflight from the File menu or press Command-Option-Shift-F/Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F). When you do this, InDesign examines the publication for missing fonts, lost image links, and other conditions that might cause you problems and/or embarrassment when you take your publication to an imagesetting service bureau for printing. After it’s done analyzing the publication, it displays the results in the Preflight dialog box (see Figure 11-19).
