Esko-Graphics has introduced a free plug-in providing the ability to bypass the typical flattening on the way to importing files from Adobe Illustrator 9 and 10 into its FastLane for Packaging.

According to the company, although Adobe Illustrator designs have always reproduced well in FastLane, changes in Adobe Illustrator 9 and subsequent versions caused flattening of some overprint and transparent objects when the files were imported via PostScript. This resulted in less editable files, if changes had to be made.

The plug-in for FastLane creates an EskoPrepFile (EPF) said to avoid most of the flattening and preserve full editability of Adobe Illustrator files.
