At present we are building some work flows using Enfocus Full Switch to Pre-flight and proof (via EFI XF) PDFs prior to sending them to press.
Most of our PDFs come from InDesign, but some are generated by the ESKO Backstage/packedge system that we use.
Esko have migrated to using a version of PDF format as their main file format, however these file have a few variations, i.e., linked externals, that mean they are not much use outside of the backstage system. While we are able to export as an Adobe PDF for the purposes of going to press, we would like to try and put a check into the work flow that will prevent any of the rouge ESKO pdfs from going through the system, unfortunately we can't find a way of telling the difference between the two files outside of the backstage system.
Does any one know of a method telling the two files apart that we may be able to implement with Full Switch
