Preflight should show TRIM BOX Dimensions (inner box that will be cutted at the end) instead of the max dimensions of the file !

To check now the dimension inside of the cropmarks, we have now always to zoom in (to get a good preview with fine crop marks), press apply, fix Magnification, drag help lines to the crop marks and read the dimensions on the left. Later we have to set everything back ti rip it.

This is really time wasting.

Better would be that Preflight is directly showing the TRIM BOX ! That would make it much easier and faster to check that the file is right prepared.

Shouldn't you know what your crop marks measure from when you set up the file, though? Or, if it is a supplied PDF, you can measure it in Acrobat - it is much easier than through Onyx.

We have too much files !
Its often that we have in one Job 300 to 500 files, and we cannot open them all before in Acrobat !

So its really important for me ....

I have requested for a long time that they show the cut paths in preflight, but unfortunately it's not possible because the coordinates for the path aren't even generated until the file is processed. There are some new things in X10 that are part of CutServer, which are really nice, but I wish they could be incorporated into Preflight as it would address your needs.
