New XChange XTensions
XChange International has updated two of its XTensions, ProScale and Xcatalog, which now function with QuarkXPress 8. ProScale gives users the ability to resize items, groups or documents with a single click. ProScale is also able to resize items non-proportionally, without distorting the elements within a selection. Users of earlier versions can upgrade for $74, while new licenses can be purchased for $124.
Xcatalog provides a linking scheme between databases and QuarkXPress documents, meaning that data can be edited in one location but changed for several different publications. Xcatalog is a $261 update for version 6/7 users, and costs $722 new.
