    Larry, we have not found any pre-flight software to help us out any more than doing a full formal review of all files comming in. Reviews are done when files come in before any production work is done. That is when we can request replacement files if they are not up to specifications or just no good.
    I will check and see what versions of pre-flight we have on Monday, maybe one will be helpfull

    Larry,all 3 of us in my department do prefilght, as for cmyk not spot, also watch out for overprint white! thats bit me before. Try sending seps to your paper printer (fit to page) that can help finding items not colorized proper
