If you have problems following any part of these instructions, please contact us before you start.

1. Make sure you have what you need

You should be running Acrobat 7.0/8.0/9.0/10.0/11.0 Professional or 7.0 Standard on a compatible Mac OS X system.

2. Download the software

You can download and use Quite A Box Of Tricks. This is the full software, but it will work for you in a demonstration mode. The main effect of this is that all your pages will be marked with a large X. Take care not to save over, and ruin, your original files.

3. Run the installer

In the folder with the plug-ins you should also see Install Quite Plugins. Simply double click on this to install your plug-ins. The installer will try to locate your copy of Acrobat, but if it fails you can click the Browse button to locate it yourself.

4. Start Acrobat

If all is well, you will now have a new menu item Plug-ins > Quite A Box Of Tricks, and a new i icon with an arrow on your toolbar (You may need to use View > Toolbars > Advanced editing to see this, or use Quick Tools in Acrobat X). Select either one and you should see a window About Quite A Box Of Tricks. Click Run Demo to start working, or click Guide to start reading the online guide.

Removing the plug-in

Re-run the installer, and you can choose to uninstall.

Upgrading between Acrobat versions

When you install a new version of Acrobat, the location of plug-ins will be different, and you need to reinstall.
