Quite Imposing and Quite Hot Imposing
Quite Imposing is a family of plug-ins for Adobe’s Acrobat 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. They do...Imposing. This is all about combining pages onto larger sheets to make books, booklets, or special arrangements. The family comprises Quite Imposing and its sister product, Quite Imposing Plus so creating booklets or arranging complex imposition layouts has never been easier and all without leaving Acrobat!
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 options to add numbers to pages, to cover things with "masking tape", or add a page from a PDF file over any other page at any scale.
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.
Want to automate, in steps Quite Hot. Built on the rock solid foundations of our Quite Imposing Plus plug-in and the Adobe® Acrobat® PDF Library™, we will now be able to integrate our easy to use imposition functions into heavy duty, demanding workflows. This incredibly versatile workflow product will not only save all of your setups but it will also be able to repeat all functions when needed (by a method we call Imposition by Example).
Quite Hot Imposing was designed to be very intuitive and easy to use. Current users of Quite Imposing Plus will be able to export their current setups (XML) into this new standalone.
Available for both Macintosh and Windows.

We have been working very closely with Enfocus to ensure our customers can integrate Quite Hot Imposing with their very powerful SWITCH range of workflow automation products. (View a FACT SHEET (PDF, 2 pages, 725KB) for a workflow illustration). We hope also to work closely with other workflow solution providers.
Why Stand-alone tools?
Quite were the first with Acrobat plug-ins for imposition, and we still see Acrobat as the ideal environment for imposition, because the results are so instantly available. But Acrobat is not suited to heavy-duty automatic work, hot folders or use on a server - it may not even be licensed. So we are planning to extend the tool set with self contained programs for hot folder processing, command lines, and more.
XML is rapidly gaining acceptance as a way of transferring information between programs, so it was a natural choice for us in describing imposition tasks. So we will encourage OEMs, integrators and workflow vendors to create XML files that describe impositions, to allow them to integrate our tools into their custom workflows.
