Reduce lead times with the most powerful PDF-native prepress editor.


Native PDF Editing

Changing clippings, masks, transparency and blend mode settings has never been easier:

  • Combining smart selection tools, breadcrumbs (graphical control elements) and a set of simple icons, ArtPro+ grants simplified view and access to graphical objects and their properties.
  • Effectively analyze and edit fills / strokes with the straightforward color and gradient inspectors.
  • With the interactive gradient tool you change the positioning of color stops to rebuild gradients easily.
  • Interactive and numeric tools make transformation of objects very easy.

ArtPro+: Prepress quality control tools

Prepress quality
control tools

You can check your document against Enfocus PitStop preflight profiles. Smart view modes alert the prepress professional to avoid mistakes before making plates: Good to know: ArtPro+ is the world’s first application supporting ISO-19593.


The screening quality tool enables you to view, control and apply screening on separate parts of your artwork. Different colors project different screening applications without the need of ripping the job.

Aesthetic Trapping

ArtPro+ offers expert trapping functionality with the Instant Trapper and Automatic Trapper. With the aesthetic trapping technology trapping even complex designs becomes a matter of minutes.

Text recognition

ArtPro+ recognizes text objects in PDF and recombines them to meaningful textboxes.

But, what’s more, the new character and font recognition functionality turns outlined fonts into editable text. Text changes to outlined text can be performed as efficient as to live text.

Font Activation

The integration with Extensis Universal Type Server significantly reduces time spent on copy changes and adaptions. The necessary fonts are activated automatically, and text changes can be done with total confidence.

PDF Action Lists

PDF Action Lists automate your prepress task without special programming or scripting skills. In ArtPro+ you simply drag actions into a list. You can then use them directly in ArtPro+ or run them fully automated in your Automation Engine workflow. It’s the perfect way to get rid of all those little tasks that take time but must be performed manually time and again.

ArtPro+: Non-destructive warping

Non-destructive warping

ArtPro+ can warp graphics to compensate for distortions during the packaging production process. Any graphic in a native PDF files can be warped using ArtPro or PackEdge grid files (.grd, .grid).

With the new non-destructive warping feature, the files stay fully editable. This allows you to change the design at any moment.

Web- and Sheet Layout

With ArtPro+ Advanced, step and repeat layouts for labels, flexibles and folding carton workflows can be created. Graphic objects can be upgraded to a ‘Dynamic Mark’ with smart coloring and positioning parameters so decorating sheets with printer marks is a one-click operation.
