Infix can check for two types of problem in your edited PDFs:

  1. Overset text -
    when there is too much text to fit in a text box and the overflowing text has been hidden from view.
  2. Auto-fit size change -
    when automatic text fitting has been used on a text box and the size of that text has been altered by more than 10% as a result.

Infix always checks for problem 1 when you save a PDF.

Infix always checks for both kinds of problems when you download a translated PDF from TransPDF

Otherwise, you can perform the checks at any time by choosing File->Flightcheck...

Resolving Flight-Check Issues

To fix flight-check problems double-click on the problem (or press View), then do any or all of the following:

  1. Re-size the text box in question to make it bigger
  2. Edit the text to change it's length.
  3. Click the Auto Fix button which will enable text fitting on the selected text. This will make a slight adjustment to size in order to get a fit. If the button is disabled it means that auto-fitting is already enabled on the text. In this case, press Text Fitting...
  4. Click the Text Fitting button and alter the auto-fit controls to better fit the text
