For those searching for a PPML production preflight or preview tool, you may wish to consider PODi’s CheckPPML software.

CheckPPML converts PPML output to a PDF file that contains the same output pages as those that would be produced by a PPML certified printing device. This allows you to preview and validate PPML output before printing.

CheckPPML is an excellent choice to preview DesignMerge PPML output since both CheckPPML and DesignMerge variable data printing software support the GA (Graphic Arts) subset of PPML (Personalized Print Markup Language), an XML-based industry standard printer language for variable data printing, defined by PODi.

CheckPPML can be installed on a Macintosh as well as on a Windows system, and is available in two versions, a free standard version and a professional version.

– CheckPPML (standard) is free but limited to 100 pages.
– CheckPPML Pro is not free but runs faster and does not have a page number limit.

If you are interested in learning more about CheckPPML, here is a link to the CheckPPML page on the PODi web site where you will find additional details and links to download/purchase this PODi software.–ppml.php
