Extensis Updates QX-Tools Pro

New version adds Panther support By Dave Nagel
Extensis has released an update to QX-Tools Pro, the company's utility suite for QuarkXPress. The new version adds support for Mac OS X 10.3 support. It's available now.

QX-Tools Pro is a suite of three utilities for QuarkXPress. These include QX-Import, which allows for the import of Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint documents into QuarkXPress without the need to recreate the documents. Each page is imported as an EPS image with the same attributes as the print preview window in the respective parent applications. It also includes QX-Shortcuts, which helps locate, search and organize the more than 350 shortcuts available in QuarkXPress. And it includes an XTension called QX-Collect&Send, which, as its name implies, collects files for output and ensures that all of the necessary files are present prior to sending the job to the service bureau. The new 5.1 version adds support for Mac OS X Panther and QuarkXPress 6.

QX-Tools Pro 5.1 is available now for Mac OS X as a free update for current users. The full version runs $199.95. For more information, visit
