Quark 8's new extensions

XChange International has launched two XTensions for QuarkXPress 8, Xtags and DATAformXT. Both are now available for QuarkXPress 8 and also as plug-ins to Adobe InDesign.

Xtags is a text-import filter, working with picture-based data publishing, input code conversion, classified ads and more. In v8.3.2 it features a 10x speed bump when importing unanchored boxes and adds new rotation capabilities. It requires QuarkXPress 8.0 or later (and works with QuarkXPress 6 and 7 as well), and ships for approximately $355.

DataFormXT is a bi-directional database to QuarkXPress connector. Version adds QuarkXPress 8 compatibility. It creates QuarkXPress documents from a database, can export documents and can update documents as the database changes. It is shipping now for $1200.

    one of the problems with rehashing press releases is that important context may be missed, such as the fact that the excellent plugin XTags is from a US firm, Em Software:

    the Xtags (sic) noted here is identical; perhaps XChange International, has UK rights and has sent MacNN a press release (a few weeks ago, it seems), but those outside the UK will be better served by visiting the site above (where there is also quite a bit more info than at the XChange site)
