      You need to preflight a job before sending it to the service
      bureau for output. Matxware makes the best. BY preflighting

      best results creaste the job as a single directory with all the
      fonts and graphics and other job files inside with the
      directory name the same as the project number, like:

      Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
