Mapsoft Impress

Impress is an Adobe Acrobat plug-in that enables you to stamp text on PDF files:

An impression (Text stamp) can be set either as a watermark, which is on a layer below all of the existing text and images, or above existing text, where it can be used for headers and footers, page numbering etc. Variables can be set to define page numbering, total number of pages and date and time. Bates numbering is supported.

                                    PDF text stamping with Mapsoft Impress

The following options are available to allow you to control the impression with which you want to mark your document:

  • Text - the text to be used for marking the specified pages of your document. The text you specify here will appear on the relevant pages within your PDF file. Within the text, you can enter some special fields relating to page numbering and date/time stamps. These fields will be replaced with their specific values when you impress your PDF file. These fields can be date and time stamps, page numbering, page counts and page ranges.
  • Alignment - controls the alignment used for your impression. Alignment options are Left, Centre and Right.
  • Name- the name of this impression. To reuse an existing impression (either one you created previously, or one of the samples supplied with Impress) make your selection from the drop-down list associated with this field.
  • Position - controls the horizontal and vertical positioning of the impression within a page, and its angle.
  • Layer - controls whether the text appears in the foreground or background of the specified page(s).
  • Font - controls the font settings to be used for your impression.
  • Colour - sets the colour of the impression either with pre-set colours or as RGB or CMYK.
  • Transparency - controls the level of transparency for your overlay text. Content below can be seen through the text.
  • Page Range - specifies the pages which you wish to mark with this impression.
  • Page Spread - Specifies the page spread, of pages lying within the specified page range, to be marked with the impression. These can be Odd and Even Pages, Odd pages only and Even pages only.
  • For the ability to be able to process multiple files and/or create multiple impressions (text stamps) at one time, see details on our Impress Pro product. To stamp graphical images, see details on our ImagePlacer product.

    When used in combination with Automator and other Plug-in Suite tools, you have unrivalled flexibility and power to edit, modify or standardize many files in one easy operation. The processing can be applied to the current file only, or all files in any number of specified directories, or to specifically selected files, or any combination of these options.

    The Mapsoft PDF Plug-ins are especially useful where there is a requirement to comment, markup or edit PDF documents for publishing purposes especially where automation may be an important factor.
