Quite Imposing Plus 4 Upgrade info

Quite Imposing Plus 4.0 was released on 17 August 2015. As well as support for Acrobat DC there are many new features. You can try or buy today.

What's in the Quite Imposing Plus 4 upgrade?

Quite Imposing Plus 4 is the latest version of the industry’s favourite imposition plug-in for Adobe Acrobat, fully compatible with the new Acrobat DC/XI/X/9. We have listened to our customers and their wish lists, and added features that will let you do more, and work quicker. Upgrading should be pain free, as you can run old and new plug-ins side by side, and Quite Imposing Plus 4 imports all your settings from the old software.
