MarkzTools 8 update
Markzware has released MarkzTools 8, an update to its anti-corruption XTension for QuarkXPress 8 documents. The program offers automatic verification of all saved Quark documents, helping to prevent corruption. Should a file become damaged, users can attempt recovery through means such as a Scavenge Text option.
The software can also save any Quark file in v4 or v6 format, and run Gray Previews, which convert color picture previews into grayscale in order to reduce filesize. MarkzTools 8 is a $200 download for new users, or $100 when upgrading from v6 or v7.
