Hi there, I work in the printing industry, and have been using Indesign to lay out books for about 3 years.
In other bookmaking software, it normally indicates when you drop in an image and it is too low res for print - this is normally a little exclamation mark in one of the corners.
I wanted to know if there is an option like this that I've been missing in Indesign, and if not (I assume not) if it is something that will perhaps be added in the future.
I think it's a very useful feature.
"While you edit your document, the Preflight panel warns of problems that can prevent a document or book from printing or outputting as desired. These problems include missing files or fonts, low-resolution images, overset text, and a number of other conditions."
"To take advantage of live preflighting, create or specify a preflight profile in the early stages of creating a document. If Preflight is turned on, a red circle icon appears in the status bar when InDesign detects any problems."
Thanks! I thought preflight was only for missing links and overset text.
I didn't know you can edit profiles
Thanks for the help!
