Quite Software releases Quite Imposing Plus 5 and Quite HOT Imposing 5

Quite Software (San Diego, California), a leading worldwide developer of innovative PDF solutions, has released two new software products – Quite Imposing Plus 5 and Quite HOT Imposing 5. The technology upgrades include several new features that add versatility, boost productivity and improve overall performance:

  • 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). Use for Variable-Data Printing (VDP), document preparation, or many other workflows.
  • Supports macOS 10.15 Catalina while still running in Windows, and older macOS systems. Plug-in runs in Acrobat DC, 2017, 2015, XI, X and 9.
  • Automation sequences can do ‘partials’ to split jobs, or process parts separately. Results can be merged or left separate.
  • Split output. Quite Hot Imposing users can split output into an unlimited number of separate files.
  • Customize control panel – add new panels and 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 is greatly improved for large files.
  • Trim & Shift – add or crop all four edges by a fixed amount.
  • Conditions in automation sequences allow more flexibility – for example, different jobs based on page count, page sizes or metadata (such as file name or keywords)
  • Enfocus Switch users with Quite Hot Imposing can pass metadata from flows for use in conditions or page text, and also automatically remove the prefix from file-name references.
  • Import sequences or steps from other sequences or XML files. Users can filter sequences by name.
  • Conditions can issue an error or warning message, and stop a job if there’s a problem – such as wrong page size or page count.
