We print Construction Plans on a wide format printer.
To maximise the use of width of the paper and minimise the wastage, we print on Tyvek® which is expensive, we use an 'Add-On' called 'Quite Imposing'.
'Quite' allows us to take multi-page plan sets, and, using templates that allow us to place pages side by side to maximise the usage of the media.
We have problems with PDF files that are 'Password' protected, they can be printed using a Windows Printer however when we try to use the 'Quite Imposing' add-on the Acrobat will not allow us to proceed.
Is there any way that we can paginate a PDF file that has protection?
Alternatively is there any instruction we can give to our clients so that they set security settings that will use to paginate using 'Quite Imposing'?
Any help would be appreciated.
Quite Imposing from Quite Software is a wonderful general purpose imposition plug-in!
However, once you protect a PDF file with passwords, you severely limit what Acrobat and especially plug-ins can do with same. That is by design!
The “simple” solution is to remove the password protection and save the file. Re-open the file and do your imposition with Quite Imposing. When you are completed with the imposition work, reapply the password protection.
