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.
Imposing Plus 5
Leave nothing to chance when Imposing.
Quite Imposing Plus is a plug-in for Adobe’s Acrobat 9, "X" (10), "XI" (11) and DC. It does...Imposing. This is all about combining pages onto larger sheets to make books, booklets, or special arrangements. Creating booklets or arranging complex imposition layouts has never been easier and all without leaving Acrobat! (High end users who don't want to use Acrobat can use our hot folder product Quite HOT Imposing)
The man in our logo on the right is doing imposing as it used to be done - manually. This was a craftsmans task which required much expertise and skill behind it. Our modern imposition tools perform at the same level of skill and are quick to learn and easy to use. They give immediate results without need for expensive training or complicated job set ups. But if you do need a little help getting started just visit our support pages to see the variety of ways to get technical help.
A particularly important feature of the plug-ins is that the combined pages are a new PDF document, giving a way to check each sheet instantly, saving time and money.
Quite Imposing Plus has many more options from duplicating pages to adding dates or page numbers and a powerful feature for setting up impositions for playing with one click.
Both plug-ins can also re-order pages, split or merge even and odd pages, and more. The most popular feature may be an easy to use booklet maker, which can make a foldable booklet from just about any PDF file. They both work completely visually in Acrobat, and you choose which files to print, save for later, or throw away.
Here are the features which are new Quite Imposing Plus 5. As well as support for
macOS Catalina there are many new features.
Just a few of the new features and enhancements:
Variable data merge: using a CSV or TXT file, add text blocks or pictures to many PDF pages. Work with a master document (mail merge) or add to an existing document (stamping).
Supports in macOS 10.15 "Catalina", while still running in Windows, older macOS systems. Plug-in runs in Acrobat 9, X, XI, DC, 2015 and 2017.
Automation sequences can do "partials" to split jobs, or process parts separately. Results can be merged or left separate. Quite Hot Imposing users can split output into an unlimited number of separate files.
Customize control panel: add new panels, add sequences.
N-Up can flow backs from right to left, for easier layout, especially of ad hoc jobs
Creep can use scaling instead of shift, so that no content is lost
Page monitor to show live info including page size and bleed info for open document
Manual Imposition: performance greatly improved for some large files
Trim & Shift - add or crop all four edges by a fixed amount
Conditions in automation sequences allow more flexibility e.g. different jobs based on page count, page sizes or metadata (such as filename or keywords)
Enfocus Switch users with Quite Hot Imposing can pass metadata from flows for use in conditions or page text, also automatically remove the prefix from file name references.
Import sequences or steps from other sequences or XML files. Filter sequences by name
Conditions can issue an error or warning message, and stop a job if there is a problem such as wrong page size or count
