Quite Software were founded in London, England in
1995, and relocated to the beautiful Highlands of Scotland in 2000.
Our first product, PSAlter remains the tool of choice
for PostScript programmers and problem solving.
In 1997, we saw that PDF was likely to be the
wave of the future, and began to create plug-ins for Adobe Acrobat. Drawing on
our experience of the printing and publishing trades, we decided to focus on the
area of pre-press production.
Our first plug-in was Quite Imposing. This remains the
tool of choice for doing imposing - booklet making and sheet layouts - in Adobe
This was followed by Quite A Box Of Tricks and, in 2002,
Quite Revealing, both acclaimed as
powerful but easy to use and learn.

favorite imposition Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat, fully compatible with the new
Acrobat DC. Quite Software listened to their customers and their wish lists, and
added features that will let you do more, and work quicker. Upgrading should be

text and numbers to a document, you can now use more fonts or colors, undo,

the option to ‘Undo’ changes from the Control Panel.
