What are the most often used preflight profiles for prepress

For work, I produce graphic elements and documents for printing, both laser and offset.
I never have problems because I respect the PDF-X standards that are required of me.

However, I would like to know which of the preflight profiles most used in prepress are among those available in Acrobat Pro.


personally in the past I have found useful the profile that sets the cropbox as the trimbox... or the profile that checks compatibility with a certain PDF-X standard.

sometimes I use Acrobat change color tool.


with indesign it is possible to do a preflight before producing the PDF file while with Illustrator, which has never caused me problems, it is possible to do it with Acrobat only after producing the PDF.

Can those who carry out prepress activities find sufficient tools in Acrobat Pro or do they have to use other dedicated software?

thanks: D
