And more importantly... WHY the F would a print employer not equip his techs with PitStop?!?! FFS, I run over 100 @ 8up plates per day and I would be dead if not for PitStop. It is arguably my most important tool, definitely indispensable.

I can't imagine being without it. I started using it at version 4. And still don't tap into about 75% of the power it is capable of.

Yep, I started at v4 too. I've been using more and more features, as the controls and stability improve. 

I do some manual work with it but I really like being able to program actions and preflights, to embed various places. I'm kinda insertive like that.  :rotf:

But yeah, prepress without PitStop would be like roofing without a nail gun... maybe even no shoes too. It would be a tragic experience. Is this turning into an Enfocus appreciation thread? I'm good with that.

With XMF you can even use action lists in your preflight. I wish Prinergy could do that.

True. And I don't use it mainly because of the low volume nature of our work. We tend to go over stuff via PitStop in Acrobat.

But yeah, a great inclusion.

Maybe a 'mildly deranged content' warning could go with the marketing dept. heads-up.

There is a possible 'unintended consequences' to this love-in. If they realise how hooked we are on it, the price may go up. Think street price of mind-altering drugs.

Fine with me, abc. Quote away. 

I run Sierra, by Xitron... which is gradually distancing form XMF, but still similar. I embed EnFocus preflights and actions in my workflows. As Frailer points out, I don't use them much on my sheetfed queues or specialty jobs, in favor of handholding, but for fast-paced newsprint stuff, it is super slick to be able to embed actions.

After learning about the Preflight tool in Acrobat, I have now taught myself how to do nearly everything you can do with PitStop, albeit much. MUCH more clunkier. I DO wish I had PitStop, but my partner has been here for 10+ years and has seniority and says, "why do we need it when we can do almost everything without it." She's just down-and-dirty and moves the shit pile super fast, and the owners just lover her, so I would really, really, really have to have a super complex and detailed answer as to why I NEED PitStop. At this point, it would only be if it were super cheap, because I can't sell my partner.

Believe me, PitStop is much, much faster and easier, but they don't want to slow down for the "learning curve."

Dinosaurs, man.

So, how is it burning film in the vacuum frame over there? Does developer and fixer still smell the same as I remember it?

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

We don't have a vacuum frame. Both offset presses are 2-color, with a single blanket, and they run poly plates. We party like it's 1999.
