Avantstar’s Quick View Plus® 13 Professional Edition Reveals Even More Hidden Content

The number one software choice for eDiscovery and native file review includes new features and support for more than 20 additional file formats

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (Aug. 20, 2013) — eDiscovery and litigation support professionals who want to rapidly view large quantities of files without the risk of corrupting any data now have an even more powerful tool at their fingertips: version 13 of the Quick View Plus® file-viewing software.

Avantstar, Inc., a provider of desktop-file-viewing, content conversion and Web content management software, introduced the latest version today at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) Conference (booth 310).

Quick View Plus 13 Professional Edition now unlocks even more hidden content than the previous version. In addition to revealing metadata, tracked changes, hidden columns/rows and speaker notes, version 13 includes the ability to view text that was deliberately hidden in Microsoft Word documents as well as see comments in PowerPoint presentations.

“There’s a reason that Quick View Plus is actively used by computer forensics, eDiscovery and legal professionals – it’s the only desktop file viewing program that securely handles the broadest range of application file versions and file types,” said Pete Rockers, founder and co-president, Avantstar.

Other new features in version 13 include support for Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, and Adobe Acrobat XI. In addition, network administrators can configure options for all of a firm’s users during software deployment, to save time and give everyone powerful native file review capabilities.

“While eDiscovery often is time consuming and expensive, Quick View Plus enables legal professionals to efficiently search and review virtually any type of file as it was originally created,” said Rockers. “Quick View Plus also easily integrates with existing litigation support and eDiscovery applications, saving precious learning time.”

Quick View Plus 13 Professional Edition supports more than 300 different file formats, including 21 recently added formats, such as, Adobe Acrobat X, Apple iWork 09, AutoCAD 2012, Corel WordPerfect X5, Lotus SmartSuite 9.8, Microsoft Excel 2013, Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 and Microsoft Word 2013.

Quick View Plus 13 Professional Edition is available directly from Avantstar. Pricing begins at $495 (which includes a five-user license) with volume discounts. An evaluation version is available upon request. For more information, visit, call (877) 829-7325, or e-mail
