XTensions for Quark 7
Extensis today announced that Extensis is now offering QuarkXPress 7 XTensions modules for all Extensis font-management products, including advanced font activation and deactivation, but said that Universal versions of the software were not yet available. The XTensions software ensures that any time users open a QuarkXPress 7 project, fonts are automatically and accurately activated or deactivated. The modules extend support to the Suitcase Fusion Single User, Suitcase Server X1, and Font Reserve Server 1.7.4 font-management products. "The ability to automatically activate and deactivate fonts is possible through the power of the Extensis Font Sense technology," the company said. "Font Sense ensures a smooth workflow by identifying, locating, and activating the exact fonts used in a document." The technology enables Extensis to manage multiple fonts with the same name.
The free XTensions modules for QuarkXPress 7 are available now for download from the company's website: The Suitcase Fusion XTensions and the Font Reserve Server Client XTensions modules are available for QuarkXPress 7 or QuarkXPress Passport 7 and run on PowerPC-based Mac OS systems, while the Suitcase Server X1 Client XTensions module for QuarkXPress 7 will be available by the end of this month.
Later this year, Extensis said it will release its Universal Application XTensions software, which will run on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Mac OS systems. The Extensis font-management XTensions software for QuarkXPress 7 is available in English, French, and German.
