    Yes, it's worth it, even for file per day! as the main other solution is to open PDF with Illustrator, and loose so much time dealing with fonts problems, color spaces problems, pages problems, and so many other problems!

    For example, printing office's PDF (Publisher, Word, OpenOffice, Pages, etc.) always need the PDF to be reworked: color conversions, RVB black to be converted as N100, black overprinting, bleeds, margins, size, JPEG logos to be replaced by vector, and the most often, fonts to be outlined... try to do this job with Illustrator, and compare with PitStop: the time saved using PitStop is incredible!

    PDF Tool Box or Deskpack can also do the same thing .their price is much higher than Pitstop. What do you think so?

    I use it everyday, more and more arrk is supplied to us as pdfs and there is always something slightly wrong with them, but it can usually be easily fixed with Pitstop.

    If you are using PDF base workflow, chances are your are using PitStop.

    Without Pitstop i canĀ“t live in fact work.
    If you get a pdf of the very different (weird) customer is really necessary.

    Pitstop simply is a must have if you have a PDF workflow. I'm often baffled how some self-proclaimed designers manage to produce such abortions of PDFs when Xpress and InDesign have a decent set of PDF export features as standard.

    For sure.
    And PDF toolbox is a good addition, not substitution.

    It's the best tool around...

    You can perform almost any task you may want, and correct most
    any mistake that could lead to an error or problem on your RIP!

    As a colleague said, a couple of years ago...

    "Acrobat with no Pitstop is no Acrobat at all!"

    Exclamation PITSTOP is the BEST PLUGIN for Acrobat !

    PITSTOP is the BEST PLUGIN for Acrobat !
    You simply can't edit PDF files without Pitstop (unless you you reopen your PDF with Illustrator - BUT there you may find your self fighting other problems like fonts etc).

    Pitstop it is a MUST

    Did you ever tried to tell: please make Black to 100K with overprint?
    They send CMYK100 without overprint... Bettr if we fix it, just click.
    If you got 2-3 days for discussion with customers you do not need it.
    Before we got it, It was a misery working with pdfs.
