Developer XChange has released an updated XTension for the QuarkXPress publishing suite, Duplica 4.0. The plug-in allows users to sample text and object attributes, and apply them to QuarkXPress documents by way of multiple clipboards. Once attributes are selected, eyedroppers reproduce styling in chosen parts of a document.
The software can now sample over 80 attributes, which can be applied to elements like boxes, lines and whole pages. New in Duplica 4.0 is support for a variety of a character and paragraph attributes, which can be used to format items such as tables, catalogs and technical manuals. The XTension costs $52, and requires a minimum of QuarkXPress 4 and Mac OS X 10.4.
