Badia Announces XTensions for QuarkXPress 6

BigPicture XT also gets new features, interface overhaul By Dave Nagel
Badia Software is releasing new versions of five of its XTensions for QuarkXPress 6. All of the new XTensions are updates of previous releases and are available now as public betas for QuarkXPress 6 running on Mac OS X. Full versions are expected in July.

The new versions include three commercial XTensions--BigPicture XT 2.0, FullMeasure XT 3.0.1 and ContactPage XT 1.0.1--and two freeware plugins. ContactPage XT is a tool for creating contact sheets with custom captions. FullMeasure XT is a control palette that provides access to more than 150 QuarkXPress functions. And BigPicture XT is a tool for managing graphics and links. BigPicture XT has also been updated with an overhauled interface, sortable picture lists, integrated search engine and new views.


The two freeware plugins include Vista XT, which provides a navigation palette with a color thumbnail of the active spread, and DragNCopy XT, a tool for duplicating page elements by dragging them while holding down the Control key.

The three commercial plugins are available in beta form now for Mac OS X, with the full versions set for a July release. BigPicture XT 2.0 will run $89.99; FullMeasure 3.0.1 will run $79.99; and ContactPage 1.0.1 will sell for $59.99. The freeware XTensions are available now for Mac OS X and Windows.
