Quite Suite 3
Quite products are specifically aimed at solving prepress PDF problems and will appeal to anyone dealing with imposition, changing PDF files or colour management.
New Features in v5
- • 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)
- • 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
- • Customise 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 scalling 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 and 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
Quite Hot Imposing
Intuitive and easy-to-use, Quite Hot Imposing is the stand-alone version of the Acrobat Plug-in Quite Imposing Plus. It will run on a Mac or Windows server allowing you to create customised workflows using either the hot folder or command-line tools within Quite Hot Imposing or an element inside an automated Switch workflow with the Quite Hot Imposing Plug-in that is part of a Switch installation.
You can save all of your setups and Quite Hot Imposing is able to repeat all functions when needed, a method Quite calls “Imposition by Example.”
Quite Hot Imposing allows you to create sheet size specific templates, and export them to an XML file. The workflow you create just needs to point to the proper XML file for the imposition. An imposed PDF is saved quickly based on the XML template rules and is sent on its way to the next stop in the flow.
Quite Hot Imposing gives you the ability to save the imposed file into the same file that was received. Once it exits, it can be stored on a server, optimised with another Plug-in or sent directly to a RIP or proof.
Quite Imposing Plus
Quite Imposing Plus can take a PDF from any source, work out the signature formula for the most common types of layouts, (saddle stitched, perfect bound and cut stacks), shuffle the pages for the imposition and show you the layout in a new PDF document for checking, saving time and money.
It can also deal with bleed and creep and can even guide you through a manually imposed layout. You can automate the process by naming a sequence of commands and playing them back on any other PDF file.
Another popular feature is the easy to use booklet maker, which can make a foldable booklet from just about any PDF file. Quite Imposing Plus works completely visually in Acrobat, and you choose which files to print, save for later, or throw away.
The latest release of Quite Imposing Plus adds fast page duplication (with or without collation), tiling of pages (with optional overlap and bleed), and anamorphic scalling (also with optional bleed handling).
