Acrobat DC (2015) support information

Information updated 16 November 2017

What is Acrobat DC (Acrobat 15 or Acrobat 2015.0)?

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. Quite Software has worked extensively to make sure that our products are made compatible.

Note that, although Cloud is part of the name, Acrobat itself is installed and used on your local hard drive, as with earlier versions.

What is Acrobat 2017?

In 2017, Adobe released a paid-for update for people with permanent licenses to Acrobat DC 2015. This is usually called Acrobat 2017. In addition Acrobat DC has a 2017 version number for subscribers.

Quite Imposing Plus 4.0k and later work with Acrobat 2017 and Acrobat DC (2017 release).

Will Quite plug-ins work with Acrobat DC?

Macintosh users

Acrobat DC on the Macintosh is now a 64-bit app, while older versions were 32-bit apps. All plug-ins must be rewritten as 64-bit plug-ins.

Quite Imposing Plus 4.0 is a new version with many new features as well as support for Acrobat DC (and XI/X/9). Upgrade now!.

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 sales@quite.com if you want to be informed of developments. Current versions will not run in Acrobat DC on Macintosh.

Windows users

Acrobat DC on Windows is still a 32-bit app, and our older plug-ins may load, but we have not yet tested them to see what problems there may be.

"PAGE IN USE" error in Acrobat DC.

Update Adobe have issued a fix for the problems described here, in version 2017.012.20098. You may check the release notes which also have a download link if it does not update automatically.

Starting with Acrobat DC 2017.012.20095, a new update in August 2017, the functions N-Up, Step & Repeat and Booklet may fail with the error: "One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted" This is an Acrobat problem because in such files page 1 cannot be deleted even if no plug-ins are used.

There is a simple work around. Use "Create a new document" in the options for the imposition function, and a new document is created without these problem pages.

A second problem in this version is that Acrobat's tool icon only shows up in the tools palette and quick tools if Tab view is active.
