Quite Imposing Plus is an Adobe Acrobat plug-in that allows you to handle page-imposition tasks and to modify PDF fies in various ways. (When we say Quite Imposing Plus is an Adobe Acrobat plug-in, we mean you point and click with your mouse from within Adobe Acrobat in order to use Quite Imposing Plus.)
Naturally, Quite Imposing Plus accepts PDF files as input and generates PDF files as output.
Features include n-up, booklet making (creating saddle-stitched books), cropping pages, adding PDF files as graphics, adding crop marks, re-ordering pages, rotating pages, scaling to make pages larger or smaller, adding whitespace, re-positioning text & graphics on pages, adding page numbers, adding Bates numbers, adding arbitrary text and variable text such as the document filename, masking out (obscuring) text & graphics, automating task sequences, much more.
Quite Imposing Plus Version 4 is fully compatible with Adobe Acrobat XI/X/9 and Acrobat DC.
And here is the LONG LIST of new features in Quite Imposing Plus Version 4.
Stick on PDF pages – new function. Easily add or remove pages as graphics once or many times. Add one, some or all pages from another PDF on top of current. Scale by percentage or to fit space, with or without preserving aspect ratio. Free rotate. Preview outline shows where page will be placed. Choose from recently used files. Undo and peel-off available. Quick file info for page count and sizes.
Stick on text and numbers – This feature has been enhanced so you can set embedded fonts or colors, allow rotation, show preview of position. Use most fonts (European Latin1 only), embed. Preview box shows where text will be added to current page. Rotate text by 0/90/180/270 degrees. Set a color in RGB or CMYK. Undo available; dialog stays on screen so you can undo if needed. Redesigned dialog so you can open/close the options you need.
Insert pages and files – Insert pages or files repeatedly at intervals. Insert blank pages repeatedly (insert at intervals). Insert file repeatedly, or insert file at intervals. Can be used to merge files, add standard backs, etc. Choose from recently used files. Quick file info for page count and sizes. Undo available (from Control Panel).
Manual imposition – Repeat layout for the rest of the document, so you only have to lay out one or two sheets. Smart crop marks. Continue to more sheets (lay out one or more sheets, repeat layout to use up entire input and make as many new sheets as needed). Smart crop marks, automatically adjusted if they overlap pages. Double sided option, automatically mirror position on back of sheet to place front,back,front,back... Shift+click on Pick Source to quickly pick the current page. Shift+click on Choose target to quickly use the same options as last time for target (new or existing document). Redesigned dialog so you can open/close the options you need.
Adjust page sizes – Scale by percentage, get page size report, set pages the same size. Quickly scale pages by a percentage, rather than a target page size. Get page size report on current document. Set pages all the same size without knowing size in advance (Advanced option). Verify all pages are the same size. Resize only pages that are already close to the target size.
Shuffle pages for imposition – Specify range and larger rules; very large documents will shuffle or reverse much faster in many cases. Use .. (two dots) in a rule for a range e.g. 1..100 200..101. Significant speed-up in many cases for large numbers of pages. Much larger shuffle rules can be used (allowing automatic generation). Window can be resized to make it easier to work with larger rules.
Tile pages – Option to choose the widths and heights of each tile (all the same or all different) instead of the number of rows and columns. Any overlap is shared over the tiles.
Page tools – Rotate pages by any angle, not just 90/180/270 degrees. Use very small angles for micro-adjustment for alignment issues – you can leave page size unchanged in this case.
Automation sequences – New manager to simplify dealing with large numbers of sequences: rename, duplicate etc., backup, restore, collect, report and fix missing files.
Developer/XML creator – Insert pages and background definition now supports Path key as alternative to DIPath. Please ask for updated XML specification
PDF/X support – Previously the "preserve PDF/X" option stopped adding text to PDF/X files because fonts were not embedded. Now you can add text, provided you choose an embedded font.
Advanced option to keep bleed margins rather than always remove bleed.
And many more new features!
