Acrobat DC is the marketing name of Adobe's new 2015 release of Acrobat. (DC stands for Document Cloud). Although this follows version 11.0 it is not version 12.0, but is either referred to as Acrobat 15 or Acrobat 2015 (to match version numbering for Creative Cloud products). It was released on 7 April 2015. There are more details on Adobe's site. Note that, although Cloud is part of the name, Acrobat itself is installed and used on your local hard drive, as with earlier versions.
In 2017, a paid upgrade upgrade appeared, called Acrobat 2017, followed by Acrobat 2020.
Macintosh users will need a new plug-in if they are running version 3 plug-ins or older. For details please see this page. Windows users are recommended to use the new version.
From October 2015 some users of Acrobat DC will have an update which shows PDF documents in tabs. To work correctly, you will need Quite Imposing Plus 4.0d or later.
New 'Page in use' error in Acrobat DC. Please see Acrobat DC support page. for more info. A new version of Acrobat from Adobe fixes this issue.
For the 2017 versions please ensure you have Quite Imposing Plus 4.0k or later.
We do not have any news at this time on our other plug-ins, Quite A Box Of Tricks and Quite Revealing but please email email@example.com if you want to be informed of developments. Acrobat DC support page.
Acrobat XI (11), Acrobat X (10), Acrobat 9.
New "M1" MacsA new range of Mac computers using "ARM" chips instead of Intel was launched in late 2020. These are called "M1" Macs, though they were earlier called "Apple Silicon". These require the new Big Sur system. Version 5.0f is needed for Big Sur or M1. See this page for details.
Mac OS 11.0/10.16 (Big Sur)Big Sur is Apple's name for the new version of the Macintosh macOS system, released on 12 November 2020. This is a major upgrade. As for Catalina no version 4 apps can run. Version 5.0f is needed for Big Sur. See this page for details.
Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina)Catalina is Apple's name for the new version of the Macintosh macOS system, released on 7 October 2019. This is a very major upgrade and makes almost all old apps and plug-ins obsolete. It has been well publicised that older "32 bit" apps can no longer run, but there are many other important changes that were less well publicised. No Quite product up to and including version 4 will run.
A new version of Quite Imposing Plus and Quite Hot Imposing will be needed. Version 5.0 is available for upgrade now.
macOS 10.12 (Sierra), 10.13 (High Sierra), 10.14 (Mojave)Quite Imposing Plus 4 works just the same as on older systems. However, you will only be able to install if you use version 4.0i or later.
Quite Hot Imposing versions up to 4.0a will generally crash if a new install is made to Sierra or later. Quite Hot Imposing 4.0b or later is required.
Mac OS 10.11 (El Capitan) 10.10 (Yosemite) and 10.9 (Mavericks)Our plug-ins work just the same as on older systems. However, they will no longer run "Rosetta", needed by the installer for Quite Imposing and Quite Imposing Plus 2 and older installers of other products. You should upgrade to Quite Imposing or Quite Imposing Plus 3 or the current version, Quite Imposing Plus 4.
Some users find problems with the serial number being forgotten on each run. Please update to 3.0k or later.
"Not a compatible copy of Acrobat" with Acrobat 10.1.10If Acrobat X is upgraded to 10.1.10 or later, you may get the error "Sorry, that does not seem to be a compatible copy of Adobe Acrobat" when installing plug-ins. Please upgrade to
- Quite Imposing or Quite Imposing Plus 3.0j or Quite Imposing Plus 4.0 or later.
- Quite A Box Of Tricks 1.8i
- Quite Revealing 1.8i
"Apple cannot check for malicious software"This is Apple's message whenever you try to install older software on macOS Catalina. (What it actually means is that all software must be submitted to Apple for "notarization" in advance by the software developer, something only available for the latest apps). You will not be able to install any Quite product up to version 4 on Catalina. A new version of Quite Imposing Plus and Quite Hot Imposing will be needed. Version 5.0 is available for upgrade now.
"Unidentified developer"On macOS systems you may get a message Install Quite Plug-ins can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. This is a normal message caused by macOS settings. Please see this page for solutions. This message should not appear in Quite Imposing Plus 5.0 and later.
"No plug-ins found to install"You will get this message in 10.12 (Sierra) and later. Upgrade to Quite Imposing Plus 4.0i or later.
Our plug-ins are supported on all the same versions of Windows as Acrobat. However, we can no longer support customers with Windows 95, 98, Me, XP, Vista, or NT 4. Please check the system requirements for Adobe Acrobat, as not all versions of Acrobat are supported on all versions of Windows.
Windows 10, 8.1, 7The latest versions of plug-ins should run in Windows 10 with Acrobat 10 and later, and Windows 7. We no longer test with Windows 8.1, however there are no known issues with Windows 8.1.
Protected modeIn mid-2020, Acrobat DC and 2020 added a new option "Protected mode". While this protects from malicious files downloaded from the internet, it stops plug-ins from opening most files, and so we recommend turning it off to work with Quite Imposing Plus. However, a new update Quite Imposing Plus 5.0g was released which allows a lot of the functions of Quite Imposing Plus to continue, with significant limitations. See this page for details.
