FitPlot 5.1.0

Printing tool to manage plotter sheets
FitPlot is a simple to use yet powerful Mac app which extends your printer devices' capabilities.

In FitPlot you can place, resize, rotate, duplicate, and much more, images and documents of all graphic types (tif, jpg, png, gif, psd, pdf, eps).

This is done quickly and accurately, right on the virtual paper on which you are going to print.

You can place images of the types listed above, also you can drop images or use the copy / paste directly into the FitPlot page (for example drag and drop from a browser or copy and paste elements from a graphic application).

Why to use FitPlot?

Because it is an application that is fast, practical and precise at the same time.
You can get immediately results achievable only with more expensive programs, and, unlike these, in a much more straight and intuitive way.

Main features:

  • Packing of the images:
  • You can fill images in the available space (in a sheet of given width and variable-length [roll] or in one or more sheets of fixed size)
  • Merging of PDF elements:
  • Taking advantage of the transparency to white, characteristic of the PDF, you can merge, for example, a sheet of letterhead paper (PDF) with the raw text of a letter and export the resulting image in a new PDF to be sent for e-mail.
  • Imposition:
  • Given a multipage PDF, you can arrange the pages on the canvas so that, after print, folding and trimming, you get a brochure fully paginated. Create posters of any size composing the pieces printed on single sheets, taking care of print margins and overlaps.
  • Resizing scale drawings:
  • You can translate a drawing scale into another easily. You can even determine the drawing scale just knowing one real dimension in the drawing.

What's New in This Release:
  • Many novelties in this version.
  • Imposition: Added the option "reverse page order". In some languages the binding is on the right side of the book and to successfully print a book you will have to create your imposition in reverse order.
  • Imposition: 2 Up Saddle Stitch has now the option to group the imposition in booklets. In this way it is possible to subdivide the multipage PDF in parts (booklets) with a fixed number of pages (from 4 to 32 pages, steps of 4). There is still the option to make a single booklet composed of all the PDF pages.
  • Movable trim marks: trim's signs are no more limited to the image border, now they can be traslated inside or outside of a custom distance value.
