Hybrid Software has announced details of the 2.1 update to its Packz PDF software. Packz is a native PDF editor with a number of prepress editing features. This now gains a number of new features, including Packz Warp – a non-destructive, deformation solution for making conic and in-mould labels, cups, cans and shrink sleeves based on source and destination grids.
Packz also gains a direct link to IC3D Suite for real-time simulation of the folding carton and label on 3D models.
There’s a new Analyser, which checks PDF document content against the requirements of the printing process or output device as well as specific layout specifications, reducing errors while helping to meet quality needs and deadlines.
It’s also possible now to incrementally save modifications in a PDF document in sessions, so that the edit history can be rolled back and different sessions can be compared easily.
